    today I have been having terrible battery life out of seemingly nowhere. I normally get anywhere from 9-12 hours use out of my phone before the battery is pretty much gone.

    Today I am at:
    1 hr 55 min use
    3 hr 10 min standby
    with 59% battery left?

    wtf? lol. I have made no changes to my settings at all. what could be causing this???

    Try running the phone dead (full brightness, stream video etc). Then recharge and see what happens, I've had that happen like 3 times over two years, and a recharged fixed it. Guess some kinda of glitch, unless the battery is faulty.

    Run it dead and do a full recharge, restore, or buy a new battery.

    You can try installing whited00r cutom firmware in itunes. It disables memory heavy backround processes and is a lite firmware made to speed up older iphones. My battery life was much better after I stopped using winterboard and all that garbage
