    For some reason everytime I make a Facetime call my battery cause down really fast and the iPhone heats up a lot... I've asked some of my friends and none of them had this problem. What could be causing this? I'm running iOS 5.1 on an iPhone 4S. But its been doing that since iOS 5.0.1

    Any kind of video, especially a video call (which will be using a lot of data as well) will use up battery quickly, and be intensive on the phone, causing it to heat up. I would say both of the things you've said are normal.

    Are your friends using iPhone 4Ses? And when you say it goes down really fast, how fast is really fast? Try turning down the brightness of your screen to save battery, or maybe turning off bluetooth if you've got it on.
