Latest news on 4sg battery life, If your battery is draining too fast try this.



The solution for now seems to be manually switching off the automatic time zone updates located at Settings -> Location Services -> scroll to bottom to System Services -> Setting Time Zone.

    I'm on 5.1 as of a few days ago.

    My 3gs goes from 100% charge over night, to 73% in two hours only on stand by.

    not one single text or phone call in or out.

    All apps are off, icloud off, bluetooth off, mail off, push off, location sevices off, wifi off.

    ******* everything off!


    Absolutely ridiculous.

    If this not solved in the next week or two, I'm chucking this phone and moving over to an android phone.


    Utter rubbish.
