Bought a BB Q% from Koodo a few years ago. The battery has started to discharge within a 6 or 6 hours. Any service for this phone??

Hi Paul,

I would contact BlackBerry support first and see if they can assist you as you are definitely out of your Koodo warranty.

Know any where that batteries are available for the Q5?

There appears to be a small number of shops on eBay that sell it. You would have to replace it yourself or pay a shop to do it. However I personally think it worth it, if you must have bb10 and a physical key board or a usable physical keyboard to grab a passport. Even a q10 can be found for well under 100 on Kijiji.

It also has a swappable battery so should it crap out you should have a much easier time with it. Not to mention a spare battery is an option. Plus the keyboard is a larger version of the 9900's ,which is much better I think than the curve like q5.

I read the fine print this time. :) Scratched off my list all non replaceable battery ones.  Ended up with a very short list BB or otherwise. Maybe I should buy 3 or 4 or more to have enough to last the rest of my life. :)

Maybe time for an upgrade. But, I know how you feel. I am still using my Q5
I like the physical keyboard and the intelligent speling correction. TheHTC  android I had before sucked.
