    With no apps running, notifications and reminders off I can lose up to 25% an hour without using the phone at all.
    Anyone else??
    I was using ios5 GM and have now restored to a new download version.
    Will see.

    I've used about 2% in an hour checking out some apps and going on fb. Haven't noticed any drainage. I have everything on, locations and whatnot. Also wifi.

    Update: location services are on, but the only ones checked are camera, Facebook , maps and Tweetings. But none of those apps are running. I am down 10% in 1/2 hour. The location arrow is not lit.

    Did you make any location based reminders? I know that keeps location services on even when completely closed.

    Location based reminders eat battery. So does wifi sync as said before. If you can't find the battery drain I'd recommend backing up and performing a DFU restore.

    No. No location reminders. No wireless sync. Already did a restore from the GM copy of os5 to the Apple general public release of ios5.
    I just turned off iCloud. Maybe that will do it.

    Well my upgrade this morning certainly brought with it a few problems.

    1. Only native Iphone apps work, the rest wont even start.
    2. The phone went from 90% to 0% battery in around 60 minutes just sitting on my desk. I noticed it got really hot so it must have been doing something, but i have no clue what. (No wifi)

    Good jobb Apple!

    Same thing here, sadly. Phones running very warm at idle and the battery is draining about twice as fast as before the upgrade to 5. Nothing running in the background, icloud is not setup, and I have all location services off.
