Currently Being ModeratedFeb 10, 2010 12:48 PM (in response to kanal3)I installed 3.1.3 on my phone in DFU mode. I had battery problems before as you can see from the HUGE 3.1 OS thread. I was happy that Apple finally provided a "FIX" for the battery..............BUT, My battery stamina got worse. Maybe even worse than 3.1.2.
I have an iPhone 3GS.
I miss 3.0.1 = best battery life ever!Other OS

Currently Being ModeratedFeb 10, 2010 3:27 PM (in response to kanal3)I do not have the 3GS, but I have a 3G that put this **** firmware update on my phone a few days ago when it was syncing... my battery life is horrid now. Between 1130 am coming off the charger to 10pm leaving work under normal use (I work in TV so I'm never talking during the day) maybe (2) 3 minute phone calls and a few texts no data usage etc. I (at 10pm) have 25% battery left. The phone was brand new circa December 28th.... I'm royally ******. How can I restore to the older firmware?Iphone 3G, iPhone OS 3.1.3
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 10, 2010 5:04 PM (in response to kanal3)It's the firmware guys...
I have tested 4 iPhone 3GS's and all have same issue...
Contact Apple tech support.
go to apple.com/feedback
keep reporting the issues so Apple can address the problem with another fix.Apple, Mac OS X (10.6.2)
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 10, 2010 5:09 PM (in response to mritacca)And I've tested 20 and NONE of them have the issue. But I agree contact Apple support if you have a problem; they won't do anything unless it is a widespread problem.Lenovo T-60, Intel iMac , Dell/Ubuntu 8, iPhone 3GS 3.1.3, Windows XP Pro, Leopard 10.5.4
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 10, 2010 5:26 PM (in response to kanal3)I know.. i have the same battery problem and i´ve already re-calibrated it so i think its a problem with the firmware... APPLE... why dont you just release 3.2 or 4.0... i can´t wait to see it!MacBook, iPhone OS 3.1.3
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 10, 2010 9:58 PM (in response to kanal3)Battery life is significantly shorter after upgrading to 3.1.3 on a 3gs.
RF performance has suddenly become abysmal. Never dropped a call on this phone before the latest firmware update, now it happens continuously. Network connectivity (checking email, etc. routinely fails due to lack of connection). This is in a major metro area where coverage has always been solid.
Please fix 3.1.3 or provide a way to revert.3gs, iPhone OS 3.1.3
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 10, 2010 11:43 PM (in response to Lawrence Finch)Lawrence why won't you accept that people have problems. My phone is 2 months old and im having the same problems as is a friend of mine. Do you work for apple or something as it sure sounds like you do. I spoke to Apple about this and they said that they have had several reports and think its something to do with the firmware so why dont you shut up and get your facts rightPC, Windows Vista
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 11, 2010 4:42 AM (in response to kanal3)I'm experiencing this problem with my 3G (as well as the issue with smart playlists discussed in this thread http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=2321810&start=0&tstart=0).
My symptoms are that my battery goes from basically full to empty in about 10 minutes.
This occurs after about 8 hours of normal operation. In the past, my iPhone has gotten me thru a full day at work with little or no battery drain.
Now it dies around 3PM. Oddly enough reconnecting to my PC fully recharges it in about 10-15 minutes. That tells me it probably wasn't actually very discharged and it is a software issue.MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.2), iphone 3G
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 11, 2010 5:26 AM (in response to kanal3)Dear ALL,
After update(3.1.2 to 3.1.3) for two days, my iphone 3G still have the battery display status problems. The display always in "FULL" status. I need to do the reset for the status back to normal.

Currently Being ModeratedFeb 11, 2010 5:40 AM (in response to cooldaz)You haven't been reading my posts if you think that I don't accept that people have problems. People DO have problems, but it is a small number out of 60 million, and unless people with problems contact Apple directly and in great numbers Apple won't do anything about it because they won't be able to duplicate it to fix it. Ranting in this forum will not get Apple's attention; actually calling them or going to a genius bar has a much better chance of success.Lenovo T-60, Intel iMac , Dell/Ubuntu 8, iPhone 3GS 3.1.3, Windows XP Pro, Leopard 10.5.4
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 11, 2010 7:25 AM (in response to Lawrence Finch)Ive been reading your posts throughout all the forum and each time you have been dismissive about peoples problems. I may not know 20 people with Iphones like you say you do however the 3 I do know all have the same battery problem and all have upgraded to 3.1.3 and all were ok under 3.1.2 so my calculations make that a 100% failure rate.PC, Windows Vista
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 11, 2010 7:34 AM (in response to Lawrence Finch)Lawrence have you read all these posts where reports are coming in all over the net aboput these battery problems

Currently Being ModeratedFeb 11, 2010 8:01 AM (in response to kanal3)I installed 3.1.3 and have noticed not problems. All of my apps, all 100+ of them, launch perfectly and the battery doesn't get hot either while the iPhone is being used or when it is idle.
Have you check your phone with an Apple Genius to make sure it's not the phone itself?
I haven't heard of anyone having problems like are being reported here.iPhone 3G S, iPhone OS 3.1.3
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 11, 2010 8:40 AM (in response to kanal3)Count me in as seeing weird battery percentages on my 3GS after upgrading to 3.1.3. When I turned off my phone and turn it back on sometimes the battery percentage goes down a few percentage points and sometimes it goes up a few percentage points. I haven't noticed shorter battery life, but the battery percentage is simply not all that accurate in 3.1.3 which is ironic considering that 3.1.3 was supposed to make the battery info more reliable on the 3GS.
I have noticed that the phone gets hot at times, but that happened under 3.1.2 as well. I believe that's related to location services, the phone's CPU usage skyrockets when GPS functionality is in use. The Location services daemon (background program) is supposed to stop running when it's not being used (shortly after closing an app that uses it), but sometimes it gets stuck running for several minutes or longer.iPhone 3GS 16 GB, iPhone OS 3.1.3
