    Give it afew days of recharge. See if it improves. Sometimes it does.

    ... and... It's entirely dependent on what applications you have running all the time, how often you have your backlight on, how many calls, txts, bbm's you do in the day, etc.

    Make sure you close everything after using. Some things like viigo will continue to run and update if they're not closed.

    I had a similar problem and it was cause I had AIM continuously trying to run. But the battery doen't really last too long anyways if you use your phone often.

    I thought the same thing when I first got my curve. But then I realized that with everything I'm using it for and using it all day what can I expect from the battery. Its easy to drain the battery because most people don't use it stictly as a phone.
