    Ive had a blackberry 8320 before and it's battery life was fine. When it was completely charged it lasted me 2 days before it got down to 50 percent. Now that I so called "upgraded" to the 8310 the battery works much less efficiently and I have other problems as well..

I have a Curve too and my battery life has never been longer than 7 hours, I have to bring my charger to work to make it through the day. I am on my second battery too and no improvement. I have also taken off any programs that may **** battery life and its not helping.

The true and correct answer is...
All smartphones eat battery power.
The SMARTPHONES that use less power are modles that are limited to doing less applications at the same time.
Acording to RIM and all of the magazines the Blackberries get 4 to 7 hours of talk time without other apps running.
It sounds like you are getting that much talk time.
If you are running aplications like taking pictures or GPS or music then that time drops.
This is normal. This is normal for all smartphones.
I choose a BB Curve 8900 because as well as a keyboard and a screen that can be seen in the sun the curve gets longer battery life than most any other smartphone.
I know this because I read about all of the smartphones on the market and this is one of the best out there for battery life so I have a charger and two batteries to get me through the day and I knew before I bought it that I would still not be able to hike all day with the GPS on or listen to music all day long because smartphones eat power.
Buy a 3rd battery and a out of the phone charger if you want to USE, really use, a smartphone all day.
I use my BB to wake me then tell me where to go then GPS me there then take pictures before and after my work then listen to music while I work.
Your friends that have the all day long I phone are not using it as hard as you are trying to use your BB.

My blackberry curve 8310 recognises my memory card and says it needs to be formatted but when I go to options, media card and I click on format card nothing happens, the phone doesn't respond and I...

The only time I've see this happen, is when someone uses a memory card that's too large for that model of phone.

That phone can only handle a 4gb max memory card. Anything larger won't work, and can lock up the phone.

I need my pin2code to enable security on my sim card of my curve 8310

The default PIN code is 0000 on your BlackBerry device. This is for the SIM pin only, and may not refer to any other lock you may have installed on your phone.
If you've forgotten your PIN, simply enter the code incorrectly three times, until PUK blocked shows up on the screen. Call your carrier and get the PUK code, which when correctly entered, will ask for a new PIN code.
If you've forgotten any other password that you've set up, you'll need to have the phone reflashed by a professional.
