    Some Android apps could be possible reasons.

    Has it always been this way on your current OS? If so, then it's the OS. If not, then take a look at what's changed from when you were getting more battery life. It could be many things. Your BBM usage is very high. I saw incidents here on CB where the BBM app was killing batteries, so maybe that's your problem. If so try a different version and see if that helps.

    As easily to be seen you started something at thursday noon. Would be interesting what this has been. And this causes ongoing drain. As long as you don't provide a bit more informations nobody can help.

    The main reason for constant battery drain is constant network traffic by many permanently synchronized accounts (mail, BBM, social networks), in your case probably BBM.

    Alright. Here's what it is. After a day of what appeared to be a better battery performance today I see this. Not looking good. Disconnected from charge at around 9 am and it's 47% at 4.30 pm. Sparingly used. May be I'll attempt a complete wipe and fresh install of That should take care hopefully.

    Have you rebooted? Sometimes BBM goes a little crazy. A reboot usually fixes it.

    Try a restart:

    Press and HOLD both Vol Up/Down buttons. Keep holding while the screen goes fully black (ignore the screenshot), keep holding through the Black/White logo and when the Colored Logo shows up, release those buttons.

    If you have a Z10: If you have the STL100-1 variant the volume button reset method doesn't work. In that case, Press and HOLD the Power On Button until you see the LOGO as above

    I strongly suggest updating to or .680. My battery is great. I am a moderate user and get easily a day and a half with probably 20-25% to spare.

    Could be android apps if you have them on your phone. They phone home incessantly.

    Reset your phone and be religious about only installing built for blackberry apps.

    You'll find that not only is your battery life better, you burn less data.

    Yeah, it is BBM. I don't even use it but sometimes it will be the greatest user of battery and the phone will get hot. I have BBM configured to not activate but apps will connect to it by default. Track those down and disable the connection or uninstall. Wish there was some way to uninstall but it is in the OS. A reset will help temporarily but you have to find the offending app.

    BBM channels consume lot of battery. Try to disable channels and observe battery performance for next 2-3 days.

    Today, my system and display are at 2%, a tenth of your value, and my BBM is <.04% with 1.5 day estimate. That's what you should work towards and I think you have some misbehaving app.
