Dear Research In Motion

Intercourse you for offering $100 worth of downloads I don’t need. (Globe and Mail) Just tell me how you’re going to fix my Blackberry that can no longer hold a charge more than five hours, or I’m buying an iPhone next time.

Or at least build me a time machine so I can go back and buy the iPhone I should have had in the first place.

  1. Also please keep BBM functioning properly for longer than an hour.
    Damn it. I really like the BlackBerry way of doing things, vs. the Apple way, but is it too much to ask for things to work properly AND hold a charge? The basic solution to battery life is apparently “turn off any app that, uh, uses the device”.
    Next time I think I’ll get an Android. Linux!

  2. I agree with Anonymous #1, check out which apps are sapping your battery first.

    I’ve also heard there are batteries out there that will have a shorter life if you let them run out before recharging them. In the old days, it was best to drain some batteries then recharge, but that doesn’t apply to a lot of new batteries now. Might that be a reason?

    I am Android. Love it.

  3. Sometimes my BB battery will die by 2pm, charged overnight till 7am. 7 hours. Without even using it. The longest a charge has last was about 36 hours. I can never depend on it to go from 7am till 11pm.
