Battery still really bad with 3.1.2

Why have the Battery Life issues with 3.1 still not been fixed with 3.1.2?
Its quite simple, since upgrading from 3.0 to 3.1 on my 3GS i now get just a couple of hours of battery life with the phone sitting there on my desk idle. Its warm to the touch and is constantly sending out (or receiving) data (hold it near any unbalanced audio system to hear it chatter).
Change my Exchange Push settings to Fetch every 15 minutes and I suddenly get close to 3 days on idle including average phone call usage. No other changes required, but its not what I signed up for....
Come on, its a no brainer, why hasnt this been fixed?
Its been on these forums for long enough.

Always charging - bad for battery

So I work and read at my Macbook Pro many hours a day and leave it plugged in most all the time. Since getting my iPhone 3GS I have gotten into the habit of leaving it plugged in via USB to my laptop most all the time Im home and only unplug it when I leave home - is this bad for the iPhone battery?

Bad Battery or Normal

So I just bought an iPhone 3g about 5 days ago and the battery life is horrible I get about 5 hours of usage and 12 hours of standby before its in the red and almost dead. Is this normal or do I have a bad battery. I use it mostly for texting and e mail. I have 3g, wifi, and bluetooth turned off. I sometimes use wifi. Also when it goes to sleep sometimes it shuts off my service so I dont know if Im receiving a call or text or email. Could someone please tell me if this is normal cause it sure sounds defective to me. Thanks!

Is my battery life bad

I just bought the iphone, so have been using it constantly. I get around 2-3 hours of web surfing. I surf on both 3G and Wifi. I am not far from my router. My Wifi is always on. GPS is always on also. The push service checks every 15min. I have brightness on 50%. Bluetooth is off. While surfing the web I also use AIM and some twitter and blogging applications. Maybe listening to music. So is this good battery life? (I dont need tips on improving it) I just want to know if this seems around the right battery life for the features I am using. What do you think?

Leaving iPhone on charger overnight - bad for battery life

Does leaving the iPhone on the charger all night damage the overall health/life of the battery? I was told a while ago by a Mac Genius that I shouldnt keep my MBP plugged in after the light turns green, as it will decrease the overall life of the battery by overcharging it. Is this true as applied to iPhone as well?

3GS IOS 5 'up'grade - bad goes to worse


I upgraded my 3GS iphone to IOS 5 after researching on a handful of forums that it was a good idea.

Sad series of events

1) It wouldnt restore from previous settings - but eventually did but failed to hold wifi connection

2) The following morning my texts were blank and all settings are vanished or were playing up

3) I was at work so switched off and it didnt come back on - just the Apple logo

4) Eventually rebooted that eve whilst plugged back into Mac and pressing holding various buttons - but meant I had to restore AGAIN

5) Restored data manually from scratch, all apps, logins etc

6) Next morning wifi disappears again at work so - off and on - no chance, just the Apple logo

7) Randomly 30 mins later it comes on again but the Phone and Email icons have disappeared?! along with half my personal info!!!!!!


Has Apple merged with Microsoft somewhere?


Are there any ways to start properly from fresh and any recommendations with reconfiguring it? ie turn wifi off, disable location services, install apps one at a time etc

Took my phone to a 3rd party repair service for low battery issues He says my board is bad Offered to buy my phone for parts Am I being ripped off

My phone worked only while it was on a charger.  I took it in to have the battery replaced.  Afterward, my phone wouldnt work at all.  He says my board is bad and offers me my $60 back that I paid for battery replacement and he keeps my phone for replacement parts.  I think Im getting scammed.  What do you think?

iOS 5.0.1 killed my cellular connection and gave me major battery life issues I never had with iOS 5.0

I never had problems on iOS 5.0 then my phone prompted me to upgrade.  So I did, and 12 hours after I upgraded I started getting the searching no service searching full bar issues.  I cant do a thing when Im not signed into my regular WiFi.  No one can reach me and I cant call out.


Is there any way at all to go back to iOS 5.0?  Ive done all the suggested things of hard reset, taking my sim card in and out....this is atrocious.  HELP.

iPhone 4 iOS 5.01 - SIM vs battery



I have an iPhone 4, which I bought in Europe. It worked without any problems with a Vodafone SIM. I relocated to Singapore and I am now with Singtel. Since the shift I am facing a lot of problems: Battery run down, issues to call, network issues etc.. A lot of my colleagues with iDevices are also facing these issues.


I think Apple has clearly a SIM problem, which might be related to the battery problem.



iOS 4.1 on 3G - Battery Meter Wrong

Has anyone had problems with the battery meter after updating to 4.1? The meter is correct while discharging, but not while charging. To get an accurate reading after a charge, the only solution Ive found is rebooting the phone. Ive tried several times with the same result. Also, Ive tried draining to see if recalibration was needed or something. Any help would be appreciated.
