    Dear friends,

    I have a brand new iPhone 4S. Love it! But... whenever I leave the iPhone on standby the battery drains like crazy. Like this night. Did a full charge (from o% to 100%) and took it of the charger. When I woke up the battery was at 68%! I didn't even touch the iPhone. When I looked under the setting and 'usage' I noticed that the iPhone was 'used' (3:23) during the time I was sleeping... really? No way!
    I had already (before this situation) turned off many of the notifications and location services... not push on mail (fetch) etc. Basically all the tips I know on how to preserve battery I have applied to this iPhone 4S.

    Any thoughts? What can be running in the background that the phone is in 'use' while I am sleeping...

    I even turned off the iCloud backup and wifi sync...

    Hope you guys can help. I am abroad and working on locations and can't charge my iPhone...

    This happened to my last iPhone 4. I just did a hard reset and it was cured

    Turning off the weather and stocks widget, and also I turned off ping on restrictions. That helped me a whole bunch. Hope it helps u!

    This morning when I took my iPhone 4s off the charger I noticed that I had the TTY icon displayed, within 1hr I had lost 20% of my battery life. To remove the TTY icon I had to do a factory setting reset. Icon was cleared & now my battery is back to normal. Not sure what caused the TTY icon to be displayed or whether the battery drain was connected. But the factory reset cured both.

    I live in a bad reception area... It seems to cause a bad drainage just being home because it constantly searches for net or better net... Atm in thailand I have it in airplane mode because I don't got thai sim.. And that drains 30% during sleep just cause it searches reception... So what area u live in?

    I have the same problem with my iPhone 4. Yesterday I made a 1/2hour call and the battery was down to 25%, tisk, he he. It seems that for iPhone 4S I have to charge my phone daily. Apple please help out the problem otherwise you will lose your market.
