iPhone 4 battery issues
About a week ago, I got an iPhone 4. Iíve noticed that my battery drains really fast when my phone is just sitting in my pocket [it only lasts me about 6 hours before I have to charge it again]. Every time I plug it into the charger, it gets warm where the battery is. It also gets hot where my sim card is when I do something that uses the internet. I have tried everything to fix this, including restoring it as a new phone twice, with no luck. I have searched all over the internet trying to fix the problem and I canít seem to find anything that works. Does anybody know how to fix this?

My 1st impression would lead me to say its a legitimate hardware problem but I'd like to know a bit more about your daily usage before I completely think that is the case.
Can you please answer the below...
Do you have 3G/Wi-fi/Bluetooth switched on all day?
Do you have push/notifications on?
How many apps do you use roughly a day and for how long (and what ones)?
Is the 6 hours you mentioned 6hrs of using it or 6hrs on standby?
Do you charge from usb on a PC or from the usb mains charger?
Sorry for all the questions, these things are not very common so all the info we can get will help

There are many topics on this issue, one might even be a sticky. Yes, you can address all the questions above, but what I've seen is with the iPhone 4, is it will get better with time. I think alot of us had battery issues when we first got our iPhones. Keep using it, you should see battery life improvement the more you use it.

I only have 3G on, I do have push on, I usually only use messages ad every now and then I get on Facebook at twitter. The six hours is how long it lasts me from the time I unplug it until the time I have have to plug it back in. And I always charge it with the wall charger.

6 hours on what can only be described as light use is poor. They do get better with time but mine will at least last 8hours on a full day of use. Give it a week and see if u get much improvement, if not then book an appt with Apple
