    Mine is now using battery life faster then ever.... reset evrything from all suggestions... it sat for 3 hours at 100% then as soon as I sent a few text messages, red the nes for a few minutes on fox and AP it drops to 91%

  • sbailey4 Level 1 Level 1 (25 points)

    ok that doesnt really mean its bad. The max spec states it should drop .5% per hr  so after 3 hours it actually has dropped 1.5% . Any display use or email checking, web surfing texting will use more as well.  I guess my point is the battery meter wont change in a linear fashion. It may sit at 100% a long while then update to te real % within a few minutes of usage.  Try this formula and see where you are. stdby hrs/200= x%   typeofusage hrs/ spec =y%   then 100%- (x+y)= % remaining should be close to the meter. Of course this wont be exact but extremely close especially if you use the figures for the type of usage.

     

    the specs for the y% are talk time 8hr, wifi usage 9 hr. 3g 6hr  (7.5% for combination 3g and wifi)  etc

    Mine was unplugged this morning at 0728hrs. by 1145hrs, it was on 25%. That a BIG drop in battery life. All I've done is Twitter and some light web browsing of blogs. It was fine before 5.1.1.

     

    What is going on?

  • sbailey4 Level 1 Level 1 (25 points)

    Have you tried the "reset all settings" option posted earlier on page 5? Sounds like you need to run through that process. Doesnt take but a few minutes other than the battery drain and recharge.

    I find it hilarious and sad at the same time how everybody rushes to download the latest software. Especially considering that these have been full of bugs affecting the battery.

     

    Then you have the trolls advising of old wive's tales; drain battery, reset, restore, delete apps; like good ol' Susan would say: STOP THE INSANITY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Did Apple ever say to do those things? No. They do not work. Stop rushing to download anything that most likely will impact your phone in a negative way.

     

    My wonderful iPhone was very fast at one point, now thanks to the updates it's slow. I'm not even trying the new one but I do have a wonderful update coming: Samsung's Galaxy S III, it's sad that it's come down to that but I'm tired of Apple playing games with us.

    I have to agree I noticed it yesterday. After I updated my phone goes through 2% every 5 minutes. I need to leave it plugged it at all times at my desk now. before the update I would go home at the end of a work day with 60%. this is crazy never before have I had a problem with my Iphones.

  • sbailey4 Level 1 Level 1 (25 points)

    Awesome, Hope you enjoy your new phone!

    Yeah, hope you enjoy it. That won't be easy.

    P.S.

     

    S III is crap. Get a Windows mobile.

    Well I have to say this is the first time in all my years of having an iPhone that I suffered major battery drain issues after an update of iOS. I searched online to see what others were saying and short of reinstalling iOS from scratch, I tried resetting network settings first which had no impact, then I deleted the two Exchange email accounts and put them back. Shockingly enough, that seemed to do the trick... yesterday morning my iPhone 4s battery was draining around 2% every 10 minutes without any use at all, and now I'm back to normal. Never knew deleting and reconfiguring an email account could have such a huge impact - but if you have an Exchange account on your iPhone, you may want to give it a try.

  • HAMsmoke Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I too have found this to be the case. Deleting and reconfiguring the Exchange email account made a huge difference.

    I hope you enjoy the new phone.  It won't be available in the US for several months, and before you spend  your money, be sure that you aren't jumping from the frying pan into the fire.  It is a 4G LTE phone, and those eat battery power like crazy.  Maybe the RAZR MAXX would be a better choice for an Android phone, and it is available now.  At least with an Android phone you won't have to worry about those pesky OS updates...

    Traded my Iphone with a gentleman for a Droid Razr.  I installed update 24 hours prior to trade.  Instead of Apple admitting once again they have issues, they blamed it on water damage!!!  I wish they could figure these things out and not always accuse there clients of stuff thats not true!!!

  • Lawrence Finch Level 7 Level 7 (31,480 points)

    They aren't lying. There are moisture sensors in the phone that turn red if they are exposed to water. If one of them is red there is water damage.

    Ok .. Let's try and find some common things about the sufferers here.. If you are suffering, did you upgrade via iTunes using a cable, itunes wirelesly or OTA (wirelessly from your handset without iTunes)? I'm suffering from battery drain and I upgraded OTA.
