    Im lovin the new 4.0 beta, everything is stable, etc. However I am experiencing crazy battery drain. Is anyone else experiencing poor battery life?

    Usually, the battery enough for two days. With the new Beta 4, iPhone completely discharged in 12 hours :(

    Really? Mines the exact opposite.

    I have wifi, push, and have been making calls all morning and still have 90% left. iPhone 3G :D

    :confused:

    We must use our phones in drastically different ways. Mine's drained by noon some days.

    I've noticed an improvement in battery on my 3GS between B3 and B4.

    The OP is asking if anyone else with the BETA is experiencing the same problem. So he knows whether its the BETA itself or his phone. Posts like this are just nonsense.

    To any of you experiencing this battery drain: Have you tried general-reset-reset all settings? This has improved battery life on previous versions.

    And the 3G doesn't have multitasking :p

    But yeah, as with some, I've noticed an increase in battery life on my 3GS

    A word of advice: you may not want to try this with Beta 4. After doing the Reset All Settings, I lost MMS (SoftBank, Japan) ... I tried doing a Network Reset but it didn't help - ended up having to restore as a new phone (because I wasn't sure if my backup was pre- or post-reset). Anyway, just a heads up. ;)

    exact opposite here, Beta 3 killed my battery, beta 4 is much much better for me.
