Blackberry Torch 9800 Battery life

What is the best way to extend battery life? I have set screen brightness to lowest setting, shortened phone ring tones, set phone to turn off at night, etc.
I am not really sure what the best way to charge it is. Charge on or off? Let battery run out?
Any suggestions?

BlackBerry Torch

Not impress by the phone, I own BlackBerry Bold 9000 since it was release on Nov. 2008 awesome device and The damn phone is still running at 624Mhz, and BlackBerry Bold 9700 running at 624Mhz, and the new Torch is running at 624Mhz, I mean what is the deal? that fine when there no touch screen and when you add a touch at least damn make the processor 1 gigahertz. Come BlackBerry...I am returning your Torch today, I ain't signing up for the 2 year contract on a crappy device. Get with the program RIM you are behind in technologie and guess what you are 4th in the market and Android is kicking you in the rear. RIM is down folks mark my words, if you want to come back make sure you are running at least 1 gigahertz and make sure the damn thing ...

Jealous of the form factor

I love the overall form of the device. It seems to me a vertical slider is the way to go - all the screen real estate of keyboardless phone and the one-handed typing ability of a Blackberry or Treo. Out of the dozens of identical looking Android devices out there you'd think someone would have made an Android in this shape by now.

Cases Finally Here

Have been waiting a while for the pocket (slip) cases and horizontal belt cases with sleeper switches. I have loved these cases when I had the Bold and they are now available for the Torch. The pocket case is a bit tight but loosens up with use. They have the eaccess logo on them. They are not inexpensive ($29.99 each) but I think they are worth the price. I assume more will come out in time, but would have purchased these in anyway. They have held up well with my Bold (my wife continues to use my old slip case - she has my Bold now).

Productivity apps

I'm looking for the best torch "to do" lists and other helpful productivity apps

so far I like Phone Logger, yelp, and Edit Documents To Go.

Even wonder about grocery lists apps and whatever is truly helpful to organize, etc..

Any other suggestions for the business user or writer type with phone.

Browser problems

I have an unlocked torch and I'm using it on t-mobile... The email, bbm, instant messengers and everything not internet related works, but the browser does not, and no internet based applications. I'm thinking the service books weren't applied correctly, can someone help me on this??

First of all, I want to know if the phone has a status light indicator for notifications.
Also, can u still assign two different ringtones to each contact.... One for their texts and one for their calls??
Does AT&T offer insurance for this phone??

Can it be used on the T-Mobile network?

If i were to buy this phone from AT&T, contract-free, and activate it through T-mobile, will i lose out on any features or experience any frequency issues?

Can this phone support T-Mobile's 3G network?
