    I had a similar instance where the battery drained by about 25% overnight. I had to "Reset all settings" and setup the phone as a new phone. No data is lost when doing this.

    Correct why turn anything off  We bought smart phones not rocks, These phones are represented to the consumer to work and are even advertised to have all functions running .Look at the on line video tutorial ......Apple has deserted its buy public and turned its back on America, it continues to sell phone THEY KNOW ARE DEFECTIVE One of the kids at work purchased one Wensday against everyone's advise and returned it Friday for the same issues battery life and he would get so hot it was crazy. His worked great all day until he set it up as a new phone when he got home on ITunes it charged all night and by 12 noon next day he was at 15 % after having it on only 5 hours

    I just got another 4s Ill give it one more try If this one has battery issues its going back to ATT and Ill just get a regular phone and the **** with smart phones. So far all i did was have them transfer all my contacts. Now will someone who know please tell me how to set this up from here. I know set it up as a new phone the sync only what I want brought from my old apps and  music over but what else should I do I hear the newest software is a dud and does more harm than good. I am not going to turn off everything on here just to say i have an I phone either. If I have to do that Ill return it and get a Motorola free phone save the $ and forget it. So anyone have a suggestion as how I can set this up as to have the best battery life> Thanks

    You mean in these user-to-user forums where Apple does not post?

     

    Why don't you return your product and get a refund?

    Hey guys.  Ever since my replacement iPhone 4S arrived from Apple about two months ago, I've been quite a happy camper.  What do y'all think about these results?  Pretty good? Bad?  I will give more info as what my settings are and what not after I get some feedback.

I don't know what to do, even if I change it maybe I will have the same problem.

    Hola,

    El problema no es de la batería. Tu iphone posiblemente no tenga ningún problema. El fallo está en el sistema operativo, por lo que hay que esperar a que apple saque el nuevo ios 5.1

    De eso nos quejamos, de los sinvergüenzas que son, de que no dicen nada al respecto, y lo peor es que SIGUEN vendiendo y promocionando el 4s cuando saben que es un producto "defectuoso".

    Lástima que no devuelvan el dinero pasados 30 días, porque no dudaba en devolverlo.
