When accessing specific RSS feeds using BlackBerry® Social Feeds the BlackBerry® smartphone may experience rapid battery drain.

  1. The RSS title text contains a non-terminating decimal entity. For example missing the semicolon ';' at end of the decimal in the title. If the entity contains #&147 you may experience rapid battery drain. The proper form would be entity #&146;
  2. RSS title text contains un-escaped '< '

Cause 1 has been resolved in Social Feed version Cause 2 has been resolved in Social Feeds
