    Hi folks,

    In Germany we have incredible Battery / Sim Problems.

    Seems to be because the iPhone switches like crazy between Edge and 3g.
    Therefor the battery charge melts like snow in the sun.
    You can literally see it. Just last 6-8 hours without touching it.

    Its crazy, and very upsetting.

    How about in the US, UK ?!?!

    A little more information would be helpful...for example, which phone, the 4 or 4S? Are you using iOS 5 or an older version of the operating system? Is yours a brand-new phone, or did you buy it used?

    Search for battery threads and you'll find lots of suggestions, the main ones that have worked for me have been restoring as a new phone, and once per month letting the battery drain down until the phone shuts off by itself, then charging it to 100% (this supposedly re-calibrates the battery usage meter).

    Good luck - Tschuss! :D

    German 32Gb (black) 4s here, using a Base/E-Plus Sim with, of course, iOS5

    nothing so far. no permanent switching between 3G und Edge/GSM.
    Works great

    I came into this thread thinking that something happened in Germany in regards to the iPhone. Possible iPhone killing spree, possible iPhone stealing, possible corruption?

    Anyway, i would hardly call that a disaster. Call your local service provider and sign a petition to get things moving.

    Ok, Sorry, its the 4s, brandnew.

    Really many people have Problems to get a Connection,
    SIM Card Problems - largely with tmobile, but also with Other providers.

    Now we are praying to get hint from apple for a Update or anything that Helps.

    The phone is Getting incredible hot while trying to find the 3G net.

    Sad - really .
    We are aware that there is no such Problem in the U.S. ...

    Did we got a trashload from China..?

    The Other Thing is that the vibration alarm lets the camara lenses rattle, which is very unnerving.

    Dont care to much about spelling, pls - its the iPad and German Auto correction, which Drives me mad. Apologie for that!

    I'm on a 3G only network, although I find your situation rather odd.
