Hi Doc: It's suddenly summer and I've noticed in the last few days, just as the weather was heating up, that my Blackberry isn't holding a charge the way it used to. Do hotter temps impact battery life? - Anonymous

Finally, don't overlook the fact that your battery may be getting bad. Have it checked.
