Been their done it, tried. Apple have to take responsibility and compensate when all alternatives have failed. As wit my phone, although they were fully aware what would happen with introduction of ios7, they have not taken ownership of problems caused by them. I now have a dead phone not fit for purpose. On the positive i now know who apple are. Best of luck. No doubt as previously this comment will be removed

My iPhone battery was also draining at incredible speeds after updating to 6.1.3..... (completely dead in about 4-1/2 hours). Like most people I tried several things, each in succession to no avail....until I read about "Push". Thank you so much for posting! It WAS a very simple fix, and worked IMMEDIATELY. Afterwards, my phone held a charge at 100 percent for the rest of the day...and now the next morning the charge is still at an incredible 96 percent! Like you I would urge people to try this before going to drastic measures.
There is a great step-by-step article on exactly how to fix this:
If the link is gone when you read this, here are the steps:
Disable Push Email
Having your iPhone constantly check for new emails is stressful on your battery. Instead of having your phone check for emails constantly, disable Push email.
To do this:
- Go to Settings -> Main, Contacts, Calendars -> Fetch New Data.
- Set Push to OFF.
- Click on Advanced and set each email account to Fetch or Manually (as opposed to Push).
