    I'm losing hope.

    I got the FIRST 4S in October 2011, was fine for a while. It began randomly shutting off around 33% battery life, and could not be turned back on until plugged in. When it was plugged back in, battery started charging from 33%.

    I took it into the apple store and got a replacement around March 2012.

    The 2nd 4S then began the same problem, only this one would shut down around 50-60%.

    I took it into the apple store and got a replacement at the end of May 2012.

    The 3rd 4S is now having the same problem, only around 25% battery left. For the phone I have now, I started fresh, from no back-up, only loading my contacts. No apps, no music, nothing.

    Can somebody tell me what is going on here? This is getting absolutely ridiculous.

    Apple sent my friend a brand new sealed iPhone 4S in the mail after his 4th replacement. I know that doesn't really help you out, but that's what happened.

    Thanks for the reply. I'm just hoping for a solution. I just sent Tim an e-mail. We'll see how that goes, just don't know where else to turn.

    Exactly. I forgot to mention a different symptom. This has happened to all three phones as well...I shut down the phone this weekend while at a baptism at 56%, turned it on about an hour later and it was at 22%. I'm calling Apple tonight. Unfortunately Mr. Cook didn't reply to my e-mail, big surprise.
