I'm pretty happy w/ my battery life but would love to hear tops for makin it even better. Thanks!
Switch off 3G and wifi if you are not going to be using data for a while.
Do not leave any GPS apps backgrounded.
turn off Ping
-Turn the screen brightness down
-Use WiFi instead of 3G if possible
-Kill apps that aren't being used
-Turn off WiFi, Bluetooth when not in use
-Put phone in Airplane mode and turn on WiFi, use Skype or something else to communicate
-Turn off Ping
I went into restrictions and can't find ping
I have a verizon iphone 4... followed instructions I found online but ping doesn't seem to be there. Am I missing something?
(bump) seriously though does anyone know why
I'm not seeing ping on my phone under restrictions? I want to shut it off but it's not there... only itunes.
Settings > General > Restrictions > Ping
You have to be on iOS 4.1 or later.
Do I need to enable restrictions? It says restrictions are off does this need to be enabled for ping to matter? I had to put in a passcode
Yes you need to turn on restrictions to turn off Ping.
you should calibrate the battery at least once a month. by that i mean completely draining the battery to 0% and then giving it a full recharge.
if you scroll to the bottom you will see what i mean
So should i have restrictions on? and turn off ping?
Yes go to restrictions and turn them on, I think it then asks you for a passcode. Leave everything else alone but turn Ping off.
Done and hopefully you'll see a big battery increase like I did.
really? didn't know about it all till i saw this thread
it makes that big a difference?
Why is it that Ping drains the battery in such a manner?
It could be because it tries to do a lot of intensive searching locally and on the net, especially if you have large music library ... (just a hunch)
Anyways, I did some experiments on iOS5 Beta 5 and it seems (atleast for me) that iCloud with PUSH is the culprit ... as soon as I put it to Fetch 15 mins and then a hard reset ... i am now at 1% per hr usage only ..of course I still have done other things like disabled specific Location services and turned off itunes/ping
