Disgraceful battery Life
Reviewed on Tuesday August 26, 2008 by Wayne, Chatham, Ontario
I have only used this phone since July - it was a Father's Day gift and I only use it for basic work contacts, and average less than five minutes a day. I am a retired teacher and take occasional assignments over the phone electronically. I am lucky if I don't run out of battery in the first day if I have an unusual amount of talk time, but I have to charge the battery daily in order to be assured that I will get all my calls in the next day. I am told that the search for a signal uses up battery power and I have contacts in an area where little is being done to improve the signal (along Lake Erie - Erieau, Pardoville, Port Alma); the map coverage you show is not accurate. Surely, with todays' technology, I find it difficult to understand why this phone can't be depended upon for more than one day. The phone capabilities are great, but I can't imagine the poor performance if I used the other features.
