    I have had my curve for about a mth now...LOVE IT!

    The last 2 days my battery has worn down very quickly through the day.
    With no more use than usual. It had a full charge and now it is down to almost nothing.

    Could something be on? do batteries wear out that fast after month?

    first thought is that this should probably go in the curve forum.

    but, turn down backlight brightness, turn off GPS... see if that helps.
    Also, use the auto-off feature to turn the phone off at night. Set it to the latest time you'd go to bed, and turn it on an hour before you wake up.

    For me, I use many of the features of my BB (GPS, mapping, media, email, etc.) every day. I keep mine charged as much as possible. I have wall chargers, car charger and USB plug ins. I've heard it's better to keep a frequent charge than to let it get below 50% and then charge it. These newer batteries don't retain a "memory", so frequent charging won't hurt anything. I also keep a spare battery handy, should I approach 50% and can use one of my charging methods.
