    Hi,
    I unlocked my 3GS with ultrasn0w and when I use another sim, the battery life is terrible (around some hours even when it's stand by).

    This happens only with a SIM of another carrier. When I use my official SIM everything is fine.

    The dev-team says on their last update this:

    But in my case this happens only with a 3rd party sim. Shall I restore the original fware and start again ?

    Tex.

    I would since you have a genuine problem.

    Remember to choose set up as a new phone, you can sync back your stuff later.

    If using Categories, don't forget to remove apps from folders first.

    I have the same problem on both my 2G iPhone and 3G iPhones. The battery drains a % ever few seconds when I use my GoPhone sim in it. This happens even when the phone is set up as a new phone or from a backup, it doesn't matter.

    The 2G iPhone is running 2.2.1 and still has the battery drain with the GoPhone sim.
