    I've been researching this for a while and have probably spent a few hours trying to see if anyone has had the same problem, and I've had no luck, so here I am!

    Here is my problem:

    I've had this iPhone 5 for about 3 months. I don't get 4G in my area so I'm only on 3G and I have gotten fantastic battery life. I'd make it through my whole day with 50% left. That includes using twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and web browsing. I also text a lot and used location services and iCloud backup. I would have roughly 6 hours of usage a day with around 20 hours or more of standby.

    I jailbroke and didn't really like it much. I never had battery issues jailbroken either. So I restored the phone. I didn't restore from a backup. Not even iCloud. I set it up as a new phone. My battery life is now awful. I updated to 6.1.3 with no luck there either. I'll post a screenshot below. I'm taking it into the Apple store on Wednesday, but I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced this.

    Things I've tried:
    Restore from prejailbreak backup
    Restore from prejailbreak iCloud backup
    Restore and setup as a new phone
    Disable iCloud
    Drain battery to 0 and charge from there
    Charge to 100 and turn it off and back on to calibrate

    Try turning off some System Services if you haven't already done so. I turn everything off except 'Cell Network Search'. This has solved my battery life woes.

    Thanks! I'm trying it now. Genius for apps seems to be used a lot. Maybe that is is. Thanks for the help though.
