Only getting about 10 hours standby on Blackberry 8520
Hi one reason batterys dont last as long as they should is that when you charge them up they never achieve full charge and some cells will only take between 50 and 65 % charge, what you should now try is letting the battery go totally flat so that your phone wont even light up when you try switching it on keep doing this until the battery is totally dead, then give it a full recharge, you should now find it lasts a lot longer, you should aim to do this once a month to ensure you battery stays at its best, they dont tell you this when you buy the phone but it is common knowledge in the phone industry.
give it a try and you should be surprised what you find.
How ever you cant always believe what the phone adverts tell you because their are heavy duty batteries you can buy for certain phones, but if you think you have a good case of false advertisement then contact the phones makers and have a word with them they may even send you some free extras as they like to keep their customers happy,
You also got to remember that standby time means 17 days if the phone is not used and no one rings it say you take the sim card out then give it full charge, then with the sim card out see how long the battery lasts then this will give you some idea of the things that use the battery up such as alarms, people ringing, texts, even when you press a button this uses power to light the screen up so you can only rely on standby time if the phone is sitting their doing nothing.
i hope this as been some help to you
