Extend battery life

Try performing the following actions:
  • Set your BlackBerry® device to turn on and turn off automatically.
  • Charge your device regularly.
  • Keep your battery connections clean. Every few months, use a cotton swab or dry cloth to clean the metal contacts on the battery and the device.
  • Set backlighting to remain on for a shorter period of time and lower its brightness.
  • Turn off the connection to a wireless network when you are not in a wireless coverage area.
  • Switch your vibrating notifications to sound notifications or LED notifications, lower the volume of your sound notifications, or select a shorter ring tone.
  • Delete the original message when you send a reply.
  • Send a message to multiple contacts using Add To, Add Cc, or Add Bcc.
  • If your device has a camera flash, turn off the flash.
  • Close third-party applications from the application menu when you are finished with them.
  • Change your browser options for animated graphics so that they repeat less often on web pages.
