    There has been no change whatsoever. I hate whatever is causing this!

    Thanks again to all the folks trying to help fix this. I have fought with my iPhone 4 for a coupel weeks now. Here is a solution that I know works 100%

     

    I went to Verizon and handed them my iPhone 4.  They gave me $95 credit for it. (I only paid $100 over a year ago)

     

    I bought an iPhone 5 (twice the storage capacity I had and it has a new battery).

     

    For the $100+ it costs me I have a working phone. My time is worth more and I didn't feel like wasting anymore time tryimng to fix an issue Apple says doesn't exist.

     

    My iPhone 4 was up to 434 cycles for the battery. Rather than put good money into a hole I upgraded.  Not what I wanted to do, but I no longer have to waste my time charging the phone or doing resets.

     

    Goo luck to all.

    You know, iPhone isn't the same anymore under the new management.

    I really don't think Apple will address the draining battery issue but will be busy selling the new phones instead.

    I did as recommanded by https://discussions.apple.com/people/Pizza98704, Made a total reset.

     

    It's now 2353. The phone has been on battery since 0700 today. Pretty normal use With some talks, some sms and a good portion of wlan activity. Tough i do not use 3G. 3G seems to drain a lot of batt.

    And it's now 56 % of the power left.

    installed 6.1.2 today, and the good news is that exchange set to push no longer drains the battery

     

    which means there is no bad news

    Just imagine iPhone update is like a virus... if u update u will be fuked...

     

    I will think tons of times to make any update now onwards...

     

    The people who are on iOS 5 are much happier than that of iOS6...

    I should just sell it back to Apple!? Or put it on eBay and be done with Apple. Wait a couple years until Apple gets better software!

    I would encourage people to try what Pizza98704 has suggested, but I would add two things. For PC users turn off antivirus when doing the update (Apple told me to do this) and once you set the phone up as a new phone, don't add any apps. Leave the phone as just a basic phone and see what happens with the battery. Mine still drained way too fast. I opted for a new phone.

     

    As for why some people have issue, there are too many variables. I have worked in IT long enough that if it doesn't make sense it is probably true.

     

    Apple is pretending that this forum doesn't exist when I talked to them. As I said before, everyone needs to call them and explain what is going on. Consumers can make enough noise to get things done.

    I said the same thing, people need to call Apple and make some noise with Apple and the battery problem. I did that no virus thing too. No apps, just Apples and my battery still drained!

     

    Please people, you really should call Apple, not just once, keep calling them! Apple doesn't give a **** about this forum.

    I used the Pizza9870 advice. The phone status after this since 0700 yesterday:

    0718: 100%

    0809: 100%

    1211: 99%

    1423: 92%

    1728: 84%(started using wlan at ca 1700)

    1837: 70%

    2359: 54%

    0026: 46%

    Today

    0718: 45%

    0843: 39%

    Now

    0928: 36%

     

    the phone has been connected to wlan most of the time, but not between 0026 and 0718. It has not been connected to 3G. I has been in use nearly 5 hours.

    That is the problem, it is only a few people that get the problem. I got it when I went to 6.0...cured it with the reset as new and recharge, and have upgraded without issue since then. None of my other: iPad mini, 2 iPad3s or the second 1Phone 4s have had the problem, none of my friends had the problem either. There are tens of millions of users. You were just unlucky.

    So many people are having issues... Where is Apple, cant they see how their customers are facing this problem.

     

    I am telling if apple wont solve this issue in another 1 or 2 weeks. Their company and shares will also go down like Nokia. Wake up Apple until situation goes out of hands.

     

    Please call Apple guys if possible and wake them up.

     

     

    Thanks,

    Ankit
