    Hey guys,

    I took my phone to the Genius Bar today and we came to the conclusion that my backup that I loaded from the cloud was not meshing with my new phone and/or iOS 6. A tell tale way to know if you have a software issue is to look at your usage and standby time. If they are really close to the same, but you haven't been using your phone much, then there is a faulty background process going on.

     

    The solution is to NOT load your new iPhone from back up. Here are the steps that 100% fixed my problem.

     

    Connect to your computer and iTunes.

    Do a reset by holding the home and power button.

    Right when your phone turns off, let go of the POWER only.

    iTunes will then recognize and iPhone launching in recovery mode.

    Restore the factory settings as prompted.

    Load every thing individually from the cloud, iTunes, but don't restore from back up.

     

    It takes a little extra work but my phone is a juggernaut now.

     

    Hope this helps.

    Hi!

     

    My battery life is still pretty bad after the full restore and set up as a new phone.  Does anyone run an activity manager???  Mine is running saying:

    114MB Wired, 156MB Active, Inactive 68MB and 499MB Free.  Thats after killing all apps running.

    Under processes there is still 58 processes running to include mail, phone, camera and app store.

     

    On WiFi i get allright battery life, but on 3G and LTE is is BAD!

    Wired 122.5

    Active 230

    Inactive196    

    Free 344

     

    Battery is still 100% after I charged it about 1.5 hours ago

     

    I would try the restore again. If you did not do it last time try and set up manually (not from Icloud)
