    I bought an iPhone 4 and I realise that the battery waste really fast ! I charged it to 100% and 5 minutes later it was down at 95%. Would anyone know what Apple would do if I went down and told them my problem ? I live in Australia Melbourne. I need the everything off

    You need to cycle the battery a few times as far as charging it up fully.
    No need to drain it all the way down, but give it a few cycles of
    Charging. My 4s gave me 4 hours when I first got it, now I'm averaging between 6&7 no problem.

    You have to run the phone down till it completely shuts off. Then plug it in to power and let it reboot. Then just let it charge all the way

    Have you upgraded to ios 5.1.1? My iPhone 4 battery life seems better after the upgrade.

    I personally wouldn't run it down to the point of shutting off, low battery or sub 10% will be ok lol.
