    You really believe Apple is working on a fix. They knew this was a problem 6 months ago and released it anyway. You  mean to tell me with all the money and engineers that Apple has if they wanted a fix  they could not have come up with one by now. They only see $ signs they continue to sell them even though it a major problem and the only thing they are worried about is rushing the 5 out so they can sell even more phones. Its all about the bottom line profit as has always been the case with Apple. Customer satisfaction will always take a back seat with Apple ....

    Yes, No, Yes (have fixed some with 5.0.1, and working toward others with 5.1). Really YOU think they intentionally induced a bug and dont want to fix it and rather just have bad press and all you dufuses on here complaining? Continue to sell them cause people continue to buy them and MOST of them are fine. And Apple has historically had some of the best customer service for a big company ever.

    Hi colelagues,

     

    I have last question. This is the result I got from my iPhone. I do not understand, why the Usage and Stand by times are the same? I used the phone very little - just two or three times I switched on the Wi-fi for a very short time. I called once (very short call) and sent SMS twice. Mosty the phone was in Stand-by mode (stand-by mode I understand to be when the phone automatically gets black. In order to switch it on I have to "slide to unlock"). Could you please tell me if you consider my phone battery life to be acceptable, or not? On Monday I will decide if I return it or not. Thank you friends for all your previous comments and your kind help. I appreciate this forum.

    Yours, Jan

    Six months ago?  The phone was released in Oct. which is less than 4 months ago.  So, you have some insider information that indicates that there was a known problem 2 months before release? 

    Yes, I DO believe that Apple is working on the problem.  They have a long history of excellent support, and I doubt that will change soon.  It appears that you either don't know much about Apple, or you have motives not related to reason, or the evidence of past history.

    As I have said before, I have never liked Apple because they, historically, offer slower, less powerful hardware for more money than the competition, but customer service, and satisfaction are unmatched in the industry.  There must be something they are doing right.

    I am happy that worked for you, and it DOES help with the IOS 5.0 release, but that was fixed in 5.01, and others have problems not related to this issue.  Some are clearly hardware problems, others aren't so easy to define.

    You clearly have the 'phantom process' issue.  Some phones seem to have a process that runs, sapping the battery, all the time, and it seems to be related to SIM problems.   I am not sure if this is hardware, or software, or both, but users with serial numbers that start with CN seem to be prone to this problem.

    This is probably an iOS bug, it has happened to me too, I managed to fix it by switching of iCloud backup, doing a settings reset. I haven't switched on iCloud backup after that. My iPhones battery usage is still not what it should be, but not as bad as when the usage time and standby time was the same. I can manage 5-6 hours use and 1 day standby with cellular data switched off most of the time.

    You keep saying this, in spite of clear evidence that Apple continues to work on IOS 5.1 release which, in part, addresses this problem.  Why do you persist in saying something that is obviously not true?  If you really believe it is criminal, go to your local police, and file charges.  Until you do, please spare us your unsubstantiated raving.

    I suppose the one thing with all of this, is Apples attitude of it can't be fixed so the heck with you they offer no support, no buyback program nothing. They do continue to sell the phone and people continue to have the same problems but nothing is done from the corporate giant Apple. My work phone is a 4 and it has been on 3 days with all updated software and used daily everything turned on and its just now at 58% The 4s Suxs period and its criminal of Apple to continue this practice of selling these phones knowing the problem

    Hi,

     

    I had the same problem but i think that it's fixed now, still have to test it...

     

    I turned off everything possible like most of the guys on this forum, most of the thing were unnecessary anyway.

     

    ---------------Here is the list-------------------

     

    WiFi turned when not needed...

    Settings-> Notifications (for most of the apps)

    Settings -> Location Services -> System Services -> Compass Calibration

                                                                             -> Diagnostics and Usage

                                                                             -> Location Based iAds

                                                                             -> Setting Time Zone ---- seems very important to turn off

                                                                             -> Traffic

    Brightness set to Auto-Brightness...

     

    General -> About -> Diagnostics and Usage - DON'T SEND

    General -> Siri -> Raise to speak - OFF

    Bluetooth - OFF

    iTunes WiFi Sync - OFF - This should be uncheked in Itunes when connected to a computer

    General  -> Restrictions  -> Ping - OFF

    General -> Date and time  -> Set Automatically - OFF

    Mail, Contacts, Calendar -> Fetch New Data -> Push - OFF

    Mail, Contacts, Calendar -> Fetch New Data -> Fetch -> Manually


    ------------------------------------------------------------------

     

    After turning that off, battery life was slightly better, but not even close to the expected...

     

    But the biggest problem was Usage & Standby time were the same, and according to that, it seems that the phone is never actually in standby mode.

     

    Next i did was:

     

    Remove existing email accounts

    Reset Network Settings

    Reboot the iphone (By holding the sleep and home button at the same time until the Applelogo appears)

    Create email account again

     

    And i think the most important(I FOUND OUT ABOUT THAT LATER ON):

    Mail, Contacts, Calendar -> Fetch New Data -> Advanced-> Manual for every account

     

    I don't know what exactly did the trick but when i charged my phone to 100% it stayed like that for the next 3,5 hours which i couldn't imagine before...

     

    I will keep it on very light usage to see how long will it last and then will try to turn on some settings one by one.

     

    So far, so good...

    Hope this will help you...

     

    Thanks.
