    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?

    This whole battery drain is unnerving. I stopped worrying about it. Since, I've had no battery issue. I bought a Mophie Juice Pack Air just so that I don't have to think about this issue anymore.

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

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

    Try calibrating your battery.

    Run it to below 10% and then fully charge it up.

    Yep, I did this too and seems to work for me. I did everything everyone suggested, but Reset as New. Battery is running normal. Great suggestion.
