Reboot Required!
In my seemingly never ending quest to understand what keeps on devouring my BlackBerrys battery I noticed the day after synchronising my BlackBerry to my laptop the battery life reverted to a pitiful 8 hours.

BlackBerry Document To Go Work-A-Round
I am not too sure how long this will be valid, but here is a neat work-a-round to not having to buy the premium editions of the Blackberry “To Go” applications. The basic editions do not allow you to create new documents, so email yourself a blank spreadsheet/document copy this to your device and voila you can now save, copy etc to your hearts content! You don’t even need to buy the Office suite of products download OpenOffice instead!

BlackBerry Pearl Battery Life Fix
I recently upgraded my BlackBerry Pearl’s operating system to the latest supported version (version 6.x) only to find that my battery life dropped dramatically from 24+ hours to 6-7. I had noticed a plethora of new applications that had been installed by default. These applications are mainly instant messenger/facebook related. My suspicion was that even though the applications were “switched off” they were attempting to poll the various social networking/instant messenger sites. Testing my theory ......
