    Wednesday I upgraded from the 4 to the 5, black 32GB. I am having some issues.

    First, I backed up my 4 before I restored the 5 from the backup. However the 5 used a backup from April, so all the texts and pictures between April and November are not there. How can I fix this?

    Also the battery on this phone is terrible, about 10% an hour with light use. My 2 year old 4 has better battery life. It would go all day and be about 50%. If I can't fix this I am not sure I am going to keep the phone. I can't be charging the phone all day and it is pointless to have a phone but not use it because I am worried about the battery making it through the day.

    Other than that I love the phone, I can't believe how much faster it is than my 4. I am also surprised how much thinner it feels.

    Restore and use the correct backup.

    The battery will need to be calibrated so run it right down then fully re charge.

    Also look for tips on how to help your battery life.
    They are readily available on these forum boards.
