BLACKBERRY BATTERY POWER SAVING TIPS

Here are some BlackBerry Battery Power saving tips that I got from Blackberry Appworld and thought I should share with you. They work really well.

I want you to take that area of Network connection seriously. That part saves power the most. Happy reading.

Charging
-Charge BlackBerry® smartphone as much as possible
-Use wall chargers as the preferred charging method

Media
-Reduce volume
-Use headphones
-Load media using the BlackBerry® Desktop Manager (Avoids resizing)
-Turn off equalizer settings (Media – Options)

Browsing
-Visit mobile sites where applicable
-Turn Repeat Animations to a lower setting (Browser – Options – General Properties)
-Close browser when finished using (close with ESC key, not red End key)

Network Connections
-Turn off unused connections when not in use, i.e. GPS, Wi-Fi®, Bluetooth®
-Use Auto On/Off
-Use single mode only (1XEV, 2G only, 3G only)

Camera
