    I posted earlier about my poor battery with my ios5 GM. Tonight I notice that my signal will go from full strength to searching and back, all while sitting in the same open spot. So my question from the pros is... Should I restore the phone and start as new or are these bugs that are seen?

    Restore as new as well as a battery cycle might help you.

    I saw 8hrs usage with 15.5hrs standby today and it was at 1% battery left, seems better than iOS 4.

    What's a battery cycle?

    I keep getting "this device is not eligible" when I try to restore with iOS 5. Maybe because I'm jailbroken? Need to fix the host file? Meh.

    my iOS5 device keeps "searching" for signal even I'm taking the train underground, usually it stays at "no service", i think that's killing my battery. anyway to prevent this?

    It's when you let your battery run completely out until the phone dies. Apple recommends you cycle the battery in their devices once a month to keep them in the best possible shape.

    Sorry I can't help in this situation, b/c I haven't experienced a problem with WiFi or battery with iOS 5 GM. Only bugs for me are within certain apps...:confused:
