    This may very well be correct, but people will argue that they bought a phone with a data connection in order to use it. And until Apple incorporates a quick way to turn services on and off without climbing through the settings menu, doing so whenever you want to use the data connection is a bit tedious.

    Here is a quick way, turn airplane mode on.

    I've found a way to keep the battery from draining, here is the proceedure:

     

         Hold the power button down for 3 seconds.

         Leave the phone off.

     

    I've done this now for a day and it seems to work, no battery drain!

    I have an iPhone 4 on 6.1.3 and it hasn't said there is an update to 6.1.4 yet. But lately around 30% it will shut off and (since my lock buttons broken) I plug it in for a quick second and it boots back up, shows low battery icon on the whole screen for a second then boots normally and shows I have 30% again. Today is shut off around 45% and I didn't have a cord with me so I was stuck with a useless phone for about an hour. and it was at aroud 38% today and I stuck it in my pocket for 10 minutes and I thought it maybe just shut off again but it was actually completely dead for no reason, because when I plugged it in it showed 5% for some reason.  Is there any fix for this? I can't stand it and I can't afford to buy a new phone right now and don't have any replacements.

    you should definitely call applecare about that. it's not expected behavior

    It's not under warranty, would they still help me out or try to suck money from me by telling me to buy a new phone?

    they definitely don't just want to replace every phone that's having an issue. they take weird issues and use them to fix everyone's issues. try to ask to speak to a supervisor and see if they can help out

    They will help you, but there may be a price to pay for help. There is no free lunch is there?

    Your problem is different from the others in this thread. Your symptom means that the battery gauge is out of calibration. To fix it deliberately run the battery down until the phone shuts off. Plug it in. If it comes back with any substantial battery showing (like 10%) unplug it and run it down again. Once it shuts off at 1% charge it for 4 hours with the wall charger. This will usually fix your specific problem. If it doesn't repeat the process a 2nd time.

    Not sure if this would help anyone. I turned off all push notifications, set fetch to manually or very hour, and then delete the exchange account. I reboot the iPhone before I added the exchange account back and made sure it was set to manually fetch instead of push. Now I can run my iPhone the whole day with maybe 10-20 mins of browsing and some emailing, still had around 50% battery when I got home for dinner.

     

    It has been normal for a week now, so I guess it is working for me.

    Sounds as if there was a problem with your Exchange account. Sometimes, they get stuck and keep poling the server, running down the battery. What you did probably unstuck it.

    Ive got the solution. Hope it helps for you too. Delete the official Facebook and the Facebook Messenger App!

     

    If you really cant live without it. Close the apps everytime you open it at the multitasking bar(double click homebutton). The facebook apps wake up every few seconds and do something. That story is true and no clue, read here for more information about this topic:

    It takes a lot of processor power at the background.
