    iPhone4, 4.1, jb

    About a week ago, I noticed my iPhone4 battery would be at 35% in the morning after starting at 100% six hours earlier. Hmmm. Why?

    I started keeping an eye on the phone and saw the ATT signal bars cycling between 3 or 4 bars, to Searching, to No Service, then start over again. I live in an area that has a weak 3G, strong Edge signal and work where there's a strong 3G signal.

    I used SBSettings to turn 3G off and the battery stayed at 100% all night.

    Why wouldn't the iPhone4 stay on the Edge signal instead of searching?

    P.S. - I did a Network Reset - No help.

    If you're not relying on an unlock, do a full restore

    I did that when I went to 4.1, so, if there's no other solution, I will live with it until 4.2.
