    Any idea guys? Battery was good until about two weeks ago. Now I did a small test today.

    3G ON, BT off, wifi off, gps off, push off.

    So far, down to 75% using it just 42minutes??? I made one 10 minute phone call, and have sent 4 texts, including 1 MMS. Full 3G signal.

    Any ideas besides go to apple? I did a full restore from itunes, as well as a erase/restore new phone. I have also run it down to auto-shut off, and let it sit over night before charging fully.

    :annoyed: :(

    EDIT: just plugged it in to machine and it jumped immediately from 74% to 84%! hmmm

    Have you let it drain to Zero >>>> from 100% ?

    Location services on ?

    letting it drain to Zero from 100% with Location services on seems to fix this issue sometimes, I have no idea why, but try it, then charge the phone and turn off Location services.

    Hope this helps

    I paid for the full version of Accura from the app store, and it says my battery is at 40% health. I just made an appointment at apple, we will see how she goes.

    Why would letting it drain to 0% with GPS on work??? curious.
