    Sudden Change in Battery Life (major decrease)

    Over the past several days, I have been getting much worse battery life on my TB. yesterday, for example, i charged the phone completely before heading to a movie and lunch. I used the phone for less than 10 mins to surf the net and went into the movie. i came out of the movie and was on the yellow battery bar (15% or 20%, can't remember what it is). I check the battery life stats and it had been 3 hr 34 min since it was fully charged. Similar thing happened today, barely used the phone and it was completely dead by dinner time. usually the battery is about 50% by the end of the day when the battery was working correctly. any ideas as to what could cause this? i didn't install any new apps/programs recently. i have been having a few random reboots, which i'm reading is a known problem. do i just need to take it to verizon? i bought it at best buy, do i need to do there or can i just take it to verizon?

    Have you tried a system reset? Sometimes going back to square one helps some issues. be worth a shot before going back to BB.

    Yeah I started having the same issue these past couple of days. The phone just started getting really hot and the battery drained completely dead within a couple of hours. I turned of my phone earlier today when it started getting hot and draining the battery and pulled the battery out for about a minute and putit back in and it seems to be better now. But ill find out for sure if it is better after a couple days of testing. Its weird cause just before this happened I was getting over 24 hours of use out of the battery.

    Same thing has been happening to me the last few days. I was getting anywhere from 16 hours with about 40-30% left to almost 24 hours, depending on use. Now it might last a 4 to 5 hours minimal use and it's down to 40%. This is the first time I've ever had any issues with the phone.

    I'm having the exact same issue. Thought my battery was just shot after a year and a half, so I bought a new one. Put a full charge on the new battery, only to have it go dead in 7 hours with less than 10 minutes talk time and virtually no surfing. Up until 2 days ago, I was getting up to a day and a half of battery life.

    I first noticed this issue after the last google maps update installed, but that's the only change I've made. Subscribing to thread, as I think something is up and hoping one of us can enlighten the rest when the discovery is made.

    Just a thought...I recall messing with my power settings earlier this week before this all started and I had turned on the fast boot...I disabled it earlier today after pulling the battery and recharging it. My battey is back to normal today. I wonder if fast boot is causing something to not load properly or function properly? Of course I also updated blockbuster and disabled the background updates for it...but i thought i had already done that last week...after i did a factory reset, but I could be wrong.
