    I'm going through the same thing and it's very annoying! I have taken the phone to my sprint provider and they tested the phone and said there was nothing wrong with it. It's only 4 mo. old and to new to be having these sort of issues. I have even bought a new battery and the same thing happens. I charge it overnight and by noon it needs to be recharged even if I don't use it. Please help!!!!!

    I have the exact problem...battery dies after a few hours after being fully charged (even when the device is not in use). I also purchased a new battery but am having the same issue and now believe the problem lies with the phone itself. Please advise if anyone discovers a resolution. My phone is only 6 months old but I did not purchase a service plan.

    Thank you.

    I have the same problem.
    It occurred the same time as my emails stopped coming through...
    I have a feeling a setting has changed, and there is a constant process running in the background...
    any thoughts anyone?

    Ive been having the same problem for 2 days! My phone used to last for 2-3 days without charging (at regular use) and all the sudden the battery dies within hours, I havent received (but CAN send) any data (emails) other than texts/bbms in 2 days and the hour glass is up a lot more. It also switchced from EDGE to GSM to GPRS very frequently. I tried rebooting twice and spoke with ATT for over an hour, then did not see anything wrong on their end! This morning when I woke up to a dying battery the phone was "Copying Address Book" with a white progress bar... never seen that before either! My device is 15 months old. Im wondering if I should try a new battery or just get a new device!

    My Blackberry Pearl is doing similar stuff. It has this never ending hour glass spinning in the window all day, that constantly drains my battery like it's trying to load something. I had this problem before, but I let it drain the phone powerless, then re-charged and it went away, but it's happening again and that's not working anymore. What is this problem????

Well only the people that doesnt have internet or anything like that, you might need to do this.
1) go to Options.
2) go to Mobile Network
3) then where it says Data Services, it have to be turned off.
That happened to my phone and now is normal like before.

This is my second blackberry pearl and both of them keep turning off in the middle of a conversation the battery is fully charged but i have to put it on the charger so itll turn back on. It also dies when...

This is because of the battery only. You can chk with a different battery on the same handset. If the problem continues then you can get in touch with the service provider from whome you got the handset, or else you can change the battery.

Hope this solves your issue.

8320 shuts down in the middle of calls or rather does a restart as if you press alt shift delete keys. Only happens when talking on the phone. Happened maybe once a month for the first few months and...

Once the BB 8320 shuts down in the middle of calls, more likely it's the battery. There were times that you would see that the battery is fully charged, but once the call comes in, the battery is starting to discharge quickly and unexpectedly.

And after it dies, it would try to re-gain a small amount of power. But you need to isolate the problem, try using different battery to test it. Some repair shops let customers use their spare batteries for testing purposes.

Or contact Blackberry manufacturer for second opinion.

Have a great day!

Just wondering how to connect it to a computer?


The Samsung SCH-i730 doesn't have a USB port, but it has a different port that underneath the phone itself. You need to use an adapter so that you could connect it to the computer. Look for the adapter SCH-i730 Lil Sync USB connector.

There could be a possibility that the battery is not working correctly. To isolate this, try to use another battery to see if you will get the same problem.

NOTE: To take care of the battery, never charge it if it's not running out of charge. Never unplug the charging battery if it's not fully charged.

MDA Vario died - HELP

hi. i have had the same problem and have had to change the battery twice in the three years i have had it. sometimes the batteries that you can buy off ebay are quite cheap but go off without any warning fairly quickly.last one i have bougt has lasted me 1.5 years without any probs.
my other advice would be to back up your contacts/other sensitive information somewhere safe( your phone SIM for example- which has to be done one at a time for the mda vario)as well just in case.
hope it helps

My H5450 won't charge!

When you charge up your iPaq, do you use the cradle, or do you use the AC-adapter with the little iPaq power converter that came with the iPaq? Try both, and see if it charges up your pda. Try and borrow an iPaq car-charger and see if it charges up that way (the ones that do not need the iPaq power converter). If you are lucky enough to power up the iPaq even for 2 minutes, enable USB fast charging in the SETTING -> BATTERY. Your USB-data-cable or cradle will then be able to charge it up that way...
