Bad battery life or what

Does anyone else have to charge their Diamonds about once a day? I find that rediculous. I dont use data or anything like that. My friends charge their phones about once a week. They have blackberries and touch screen phones too.

Any way to reduce battery drain?

Re: Bad battery life or what

I charge every night and I text like crazy. These phones just don't get good battery life. Just do a search for some of my threads relating to battery life and you will get a few tips.

Re: Bad battery life or what

Its so annoying. I'm pretty jealous of people that are always on data and talk more than me and only charge about once a week. Im wondering if the touch pro drains the battery this quickly too

It's the same phone plus a keyboard. Get a Touch Pro 2 and you will have better battery life.

I've never met a person with any phone, dumbest to smartest, that didn't have to charge their phone at least every 2-3 days.

When their battery can last an entire week (and not be totally dead at the end of it) on normal text, talk and data usage, why would they charge it every 2-3 days?

I Want a touch pro 2 but I wont be able to get a good deal for it since I still have 2 years left on my contract and its pretty expensive.

Turn off location service. I was having to recharge every 4 hours or so , then turned it off. now can go full day with data checking emails (5 accounts) every 5 minutes.

Being about week with them on vacation, I noticed it myself. While I had to charge every night (or every other night), they charged at the end of the week. And its not like they have the same phone either. I think one is an Omnia and the other is a blackberry. I'm pretty sure the person with the Omnia doesnt get quite through the entire week like the blackberry though.

And thanks hessien, I thought my location setting was already off but I forgot that I have to check it after I flash to a new ROM. I just turned it off now so I'll see how it goes.

Re: Bad battery life or what

Blackberrys just get good battery life and reception. I think they fine tune them for that. But you get what you get, and there is no customization except of maybe like wallpapers or colors or ringtones. That's how they are.
