How to Increase Your Blackberry Bold Battery Lifespan
1. Upgrade Your Blackberry Operating System
Your blackberry OS could be an old version and that might be the real cause of its battery been flat. So, change the OS of your BB and make it runs faster. Visit the App world to download the update for your current software. Go to blackberry app world to upgrade your BB OS.
2. Make sure your Bluetooth is turned off unless in use
Another thing that could cause your blackberry battery to drain faster is Bluetooth connection. When your Bluetooth is turned on for a very long time, chances are that it might consume most of your battery charges and left nothing for you to use. Turn your Bluetooth off when it is not in use or when you’re away from your smartphone.
3. Make sure your Wi-Fi is disabled unless in use
Similar to Bluetooth connection, but this one is even worse than Bluetooth because it depends mostly on battery consumption to functions well. And since it is going to work with your blackberry service from your service provider, it is highly recommended to disable it when not in use, or when you are not surfing the net.
4. Make sure all applications that are not being used are closed
Close all the applications that are currently working on your blackberry smartphone because they could be exhausting your battery from the background unknown to you.
Every time you are done with your BB application, kindly close it and activate the one that you want to use.
And also, in this kind of situation when your battery is flat, what you need to do once it is back working is to always disable its Wi-Fi access.
5) Always Turn-off your device if you’re out of signal or low signal strength
When you find yourself in an area with little or no signal strength, it is highly recommended that you either charge the phone or you turn it off to save battery.

How to Make Changes to the Phones Settings to Reduces Battery Consumption
First of all, let us change some settings in the phone to test what really caused this problem:
On your blackberry device, locate Options>Screen/Keyboard
Then adjust the settings to match these one below:
Timeout: 20 Sec.
Auto Dim: Off
LED Coverage: Off
Key Tone: Off
Audible Roll: Mute
Use Wi-Fi access instead of 3G Network: Whenever you are connecting to your Wi-Fi network access instead of the 3G network, you are saving your battery life from draining instead of using the 3G network which normally requires much more power. Change to 2G or 2.5G so that the phone can use stop searching for 3G network which will certainly decreases battery consumption. This is exactly how I have changed my BB Tor to make it work without consuming much battery.
Once you are able to adjust these settings on your phone, it will help you cut down the energy usage of the battery than how it was earlier before. Adjusting these settings will help cut down on energy spent by the device, making it last much longer.
