    Not just my Blackberry, but a co-workers little dumb phone is down to one of three bars, too. This is 4 hours into the shift with little usage. Off charger at 7:00, at 57% by 11:00 with three less than a minute phone calls and two text msgs...that's IT.

    Could be that there's a tower down, or they're working on something in that area. Only thing I can think of that would produce that effect. Granted I'm not a tech, just basing this off what I've read. My drainage is normal.

    Be happy they aren't pushing out updates and making your device restart.

    Same issue in NC, usually lasts 3 days without use and with one call today it should have more battery life. Agree something is amiss.

    I uninstalled google maps--which wasn't "running" but must have been using resources. I had installed it the night before.

    Yesterday, batt life was better...today, so far so good...seems back to normal; at 83% at 1130...off charger at 745, moderate use.

    No, no wifi or gps. Decent coverage area (Philadelphia suburbs).
