    I purchased the BB 8130 last month kept it for 2 weeks and just couldn't live with the short battery life, so I took it back and brought a Centro... I realized I made a big mistake the minute I left the store with it (took it back 2 weeks later). I soon found out that a short battery life vs a Cento was not the right choice for me. Nice phone but the BB had won me over!! Needless to say... I'm back!! I went and got another BB today

    I LOVE this phone!!

    First, welcome to Crackberry!

    Second, you shouldn't be having battery problems from a new device? If this one is giving you battery problems then take it back.

    Thanks for the welcomes!!

    I hope not to have any problems this time around. But with the last one I had the battery would be dead in less than 2 hrs if that long. When I took it back they told me that the 8130 had poor battery life.

    You were smart to take the palm back, bbs have the best battery life, maybe you had a bad battery in the first one

    Good choice. Like motorola, I don't plan on ever getting one of these devices unless they are brand new, free and without a contract extension (won't happen). Lol

    Welcome back, just like crack, it bought you back.
