Major battery issues on 3GS
My battery percentage is dropping, and dropping FAST. About 40% in less than an hour, with VERY LITTLE useage.
wifi is off.
bluetooth is off.
email is set to manual.
push on select apps.
coverage area is near perfect.
never been jailbroken.
Most recent OS installed.
Anyone have any advice? Have you seen this before?

My new 3GS suddenly started getting hot and draining the battery very quickly (2-4 hours). It had been working fine for 6-7 weeks. I did a complete erase and restore, to no avail. The second time, I didnít restore and -no more hot iPhone, so that proved it wasnít hardware.
When I reset and restored again, all was well!
So, my experience is, do a backup and you wonít lose anything. It's relatively painless.
BTW -I reset my (old) 3G before I sold it, and that took well over an hour, but the 3GS completes this in a minute or two. Is this normal? Any feed back would be appreciated.
Well, I wiped the phone clean and restored from a backup last night... at first it looked like most of my issues went away (random super slowness and general lag when doing almost anything).
But, after a few hours (after being charged to 100%) the battery meter started dropping super fast out of no where. So maybe somehow the battery is screwed.
I have an appointment with the Genius Bar today... I am hoping the can figure this out without giving me a brand new phone (with a new UUID) because then my beta apps are going to get screwed. Bleck.
Everyone cross their fingers with me, haha.
