    has anyone else noticed since the update to 4.2.1 the battery life really sucks? before the update normal use would be around 70% at lunch time now its well below 50% and also seems to take a lot longer to charge.:mad:

    Is your iPhone jailbroken? Did you "hactivate" with Redsn0w?

    Redsn0w's "hactivating" is partly the problem. Also you should set up your iPhone as "new".
