I've had my iPhone 4 for months, and I've always gotten great battery life. Recently I got an iPad 2, and this has caused me to BARELY use the iPhone. It pretty much just sits in my pocket except for the moments where I send some texts.

But for some reason, I recently noticed that my phone gets horrible battery life. For example, today, my phone was unplugged around 10AM. It's 10PM now, and my phone is at 13% battery. That might be fine if I used my phone a lot, but I don't. My normal activities, schedules, and places I go, haven't changed at all. I did not leave the Personal Hotspot feature on, I didn't leave the stopwatch on... I just have no idea why this is happening.

Anyone care to list off the possibilities?

Quit Mail. Either via forcequit or removing from the multitasking bar.

Actually, just go into the multitasking and remove the first 7-10.
