During the update, the 3GS phone got stuck in "recovery mode", and my PC would not recognize it as connected (iRecover didn't help, either). Ended up taking it to my old PC to "restore" to the latest version, but lost all content on the phone. Now my PC recognized it, and I was able to restore from a backup ~6 hrs to restore. Thanks for nothing Apple! -() What if I hadn't had the old PC around? Unfortunately, the nightmare wasn't over. Now the battery drains like crazy. I used to start the day @ 100% and would lose (use) about 15%. Now, it's all gone in just over 8 hrs, and that without having used the phone AT ALL!! NOTHING CHANGED EXCEPT FOR DOING THE UPDATE VIA ITUNES! Never jailbroken either. Interestingly, usage and standby times under Settings | General | Usage are the same! It's as if I had a constant open phone connection. The phone is warm too. Even if I turn off 3G and cellular data, it seems to make no difference. I killed all the running apps in the "taskbar" (hold icons until jiggle, and press the "-") even did the restart thing - no difference. I hear a suggestion to restore as a new phone in iTunes, but with over 300 apps, that is not a trivial task. It would be nice if there was a way to easily make a list of all the apps I have installed on the phone - I have about 600 in my PC (iTunes), of which about half are installed. All of this because I chose to accept Apple's maintenance update - something is really wrong here, Steve Jobs!! Can anybody help?
