For your Blackberry mobile life:

-> While you’re on the go, keep in touch with email, instant messaging and advanced phone functionality
-> Go beyond communications with features like a built-in camera, multi-media and social networking capabilities1
-> Stay on top of your life wherever it takes you with the Internet, GPS, Blackberry® Maps and more
-> BlackBerry are designed with an easy-to-use QWERTY style keyboard. Along with the intuitive trackball on many models, that means typing and navigating couldn’t be easier.

Maximizing Battery Life On Your BlackBerry

Bad coverage = battery drain
If you are in an area of weak coverage, your battery will drain very quickly. Your BlackBerry smartphone is constantly looking for, finding, and trying hard to receive network signal.

3rd party app running in the background
Make sure that app is closed when you are not using it. For proper apps closing, in the application, bring up your menu, scroll to the bottom and choose “Close” or “Exit”.

Using 3G signal will drain battery fast
GSM/EDGE signal will have better battery life than a 3G. The benefit is that 3G have faster data transfer speeds than their GSM/EDGE. GSM/EDGE is good enough for normal usage and messaging (almost no lagging), therefore you don’t need 3G signal. Only turn on 3G, when you need high speed internet browsing.

Update BlackBerry OS may result in improve battery life
You should always keep the BB OS up to date with the most recent CARRIER AUTHORIZED (NOT Leaked OS). Sometimes a new OS is significantly improving battery life. For example, the most recent OS update for the BlackBerry Curve 8900 improved battery life by almost 50%!

Blackberry smartphone setting
Go to Options-Screen / Keyboard.
Backlight Brightness: The lower setting is helps to conserve battery life.
Backlight Timeout: The longer the screen is on, the more battery you’re using.
Automatically Dim Backlight: While it will help by lighting up the screen when you step into the sun so that you can see it, this feature also allows the BlackBerry device to realize when you are in a darker area and dim your screen accordingly.

Always use BlackBerry holster
Put your BlackBerry smartphone into holster will turn your smartphone into “sleep-mode” in order to conserve battery.
