    I have been having a weird problem with my iPhone. I usually charge my phone overnight and take it off the charge first thing in the morning. When I first got the phone about 2 weeks ago the battery would stay at 100% for about the first hour even when I used it a decent amount.

    2 weeks later if I just turn the phone on it drops 1 percent every 5 minutes or so. One day I decided to restart it after 15 minutes off use (battery was at 96%) and it was back at 100! Now everyday I have to do this same thing to prevent it from dropping so fast. Is this normal? I have the Verizon iPhone btw. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You need to turn off the % feature so you can just relax and enjoy your phone.:p

    How often do you cycle your battery?

    Battery calibration, slight differences in use, and calculation of % can all effect this, your phone is fine, done worry about it.

    I'm still confused. Isn't that something to worry about since the battery is dropping so fast the phone would be dead in a few hours. Still not sure why I need to restart to get the battery back to normal.

    Did you do an update? The same thing happened to me after I updated to 4.3 so I did a restore and turned Ping off and now battery is back to being incredible again ;)!
