I get 48+ hours use, with location services on, push email and notifications on, BT always on, WiFi, on, diagnostic notifications on. There was nothing for 6.0.1 to fix - the problem is in YOUR phone - corrupt settings or data - or hacking.
1. Settings > General > Reset > Reset all settings
2. Settings > General > Reset > Erase all data and settings > Set up as new, without using a backup. (Or, restore in iTunes as new.)

Which of the 3 things I suggested do you mean by "that"? If you didn' Restore as new in iTunes, you didn't do everything. If you EVER jailbroke the phone, forget about battery life - even restoring as new won't fix it.

Hey Modular: What does erasing the iphone and NOT plugging it into itunes "As new" actually do?
I did a DFU, downloaded fresh Ios 6.0.1 software, downloaded it on the phone, set up the phone as new in itunes, unpluggd the phone, manually did all of my apps on the phone thru wifi..
So, what would not plugging it into itunes in this scenario actually do?

Actually, there is a difference:
Restoring in iTunes reinstalls the iOS and firmware, and updates them if a newer version exists.
Erasing all data and settings leaves whatever iOS/firmware is currently installed. If there is corruption of the iOS itself, that won't get fixed, and no update is done.

Right...I misread. On itunes, I did dfu mode, fresh install of ios 6.0.1, manually did all of my stuff...
Thats why I was wondering if "Erase All Data and Settings" could possibly do something BETTER to be sure it's as clean as can be. I guess the itunes way is really the only way to be sure... And my battery is still no good yikes.

Restore as New and DO NOT reinstall anything at all. Check battery life. If it isn't excellent then your phone is defective. If battery life is OK with nothing installed add back your email account. Test again. If it's still OK add back apps a few at a time. When they battery life goes downhill you have narrowed the problem down to a few apps.
