    It is not a general problem; it only affects a few phones. If yours is one it is clearly a problem for you, however.

    If you have a Microsoft Exchange or gmail account (or any account with Push) go into Settings and delete the account. Then reboot the phone (hold HOME and SLEEP buttons about 10 seconds, until an Apple logo appears) then go back into settings and add your email accounts bacl.

    Dear Lawrence, I'writing from Italy and I got the same problem with my Iphone 3Gs after the latest software update .
    My battery got the 50% time less than before
    I dont't think is a problem of few phones , as you say, by the way I've seen that thousand of people got the same problem.
    I have a private mail server and I don't use push.
    Th really problem is that the updates is wrong or not pefect for everyone and Apple must solve it.
    So I have to reset my phone and delete all my data ? Do you think that is correct ?
    I believe that Apple must solve the problem for everybody and we are a lot in the world . Have a nice day

    Shortened battery life is an issue reported after every update. The "issue" only affects a limited number of users. It is not an issue with the OS.

    The problem lies in your settings or a corrupt file in your backup, it is also possible that it is a hardware issue.

    I and many others are seeing better battery life after the update to 4.1.

    Try doing some basic troubleshooting before jumping to the conclusion that the update is the problem.

    Such a thorough diagnosis there chief! So do you use a crystal ball or tarot cards to diagnose these issues across the intarwebz?

    I am simply amazed that you just know what this individuals problem is based on what they posted. Bravo!

    It appears you've copied almost word for word another forum members posts and it's still the least bit helpful to those having issues.

    Wow...amazing. So, what will my iPhone's battery life be like tomorrow? How about a week from now?

    I am using 3GS since last 11 months, when I updated from Ver 3.2 to 4.. it was working fine for 4 days and then dead. I got brand new replacement last month, yesterday I dared to upgrade again to now 4.1 and now.. battery is draining out very very fast. I removed some games and adjusting some settings related to WiFi but nothing is working out. Can I go back to old OS 3.2 or something? how?

    There is no version 3.2 for the iPhone, that is strictly for the iPad.

    If you search Google, you can find ways to roll back to previous versions.
    Apple does not support this and we cannot discuss it further here.

    You can troubleshoot the issue, see above posts, to rule out iOS 4.1.

    Sorry to tell you but nothing in this thread works. I know everyone is not technical but I could not live with this battery draining for 1 week. I have fixed this problem. Open the phone and unplug the battery. Hold the power button for ten seconds and put the phone back together. I am no longer running warm or dieing while I am charging.
