    Does anyone else have this issue ...

    I have noticed when checking the battery usage (at the bottom of settings/general/usage) that my 4S is indicating that I have used my phone, when in fact I have not?

    Example ... late last night it was showing as 46 minutes of usage, then this morning it was showing as just over 3 hours, even though I had to used it at all?

    The standby value appears to be as expected.

    I was wondering if anyone else out there has noticed this, also?

    Could it simply be that iCloud is regularly checking for updated information etc, and this is why the phone is showing as being "used"?

    I'd appreciate any feedback.

    Thanks in advance ;)

    Perhaps a screenshot and a re-phrasing of your problem would encourage more people to help you with your problem. From my point of view, it's probably a software problem, but I can't be sure. Do a iTunes restore for your phone and see if it works. I think it'll be better to not restore from your old backup if you can.

    Problem could be, as you said, iCloud is syncing stuff when you were sleeping. Or perhaps check if any apps are carrying out any background tasks without your knowledge. Then take the appropriate actions to curb the problem. Hope this helps!
