Currently Being ModeratedAug 24, 2010 4:06 PM (in response to mr-anderson)Me and my friend came to a conclusion and we think that there's a bug in 4.0.1 that makes the modem work 300% harder and therefor the battery runs out quickly, and as you know, modem cannot be downgraded, and yet there's no new modem. So every one who updated to 4.0.1 even for 1 minute is stuck right now with a modem that uses the battery in a bad way.
(maybe it's connected to the signal appearance update in 4.0.1...)
What do you all think people?

Currently Being ModeratedAug 24, 2010 4:27 PM (in response to mr-anderson)There is no "BUG". When I went to the Apple store, the tech there told me that "yes" the battery will run out faster with the OS 4.0 because its a larger program to run on a smaller processor. He also did say that eventually people will want all the new 4.0 features and upgrade to an I4. Really????!!!!
I've been so upset with the whole upgrade that I hate my phone now!

Currently Being ModeratedAug 24, 2010 4:44 PM (in response to !phonetrobles)I recently updated to iso 4.0.2 on my 3GS and the battery life has only been one of a multitude of problems! And we might want an i4 if they could even build that right the first time. The i4 is a kick *** phone unless you have to hold it to use it! Leave it to someone with money to intentionally make there own tech into crap so you will hopefully buy their new crap! Thanks Bill. Keep up the great work ya tool!Dell laptop
Currently Being ModeratedAug 24, 2010 8:24 PM (in response to mr-anderson)Alas, I am having the same standby-battery-loss issues. I leave my phone at home during the day while I'm at work. 8 hours later, I come home and my battery is down to 90%. I didn't use the phone all day and it was charged full the night before.
I saw another post on the internet stating that the person believes it is the always-on wifi that was added in ios4. So far, it seems plausible.
