what to know or do before restoring as new
I am going to restore my iphone to new later on today and was wondering if there is anything I should do or know before doing so? I'm obviously going to back it up before I begin.
After the phone is restored will I need to download all the apps in itunes again or will they remain on my computer? Does the phone need to be reactivated? What are the risks of that?
Any other thing I should be aware of?

Why are you restoring as new? Are you having some problem with your iPhone?

I ended up just doing the restore as new today. It did fix the battery issue. I would normally get an hours usage before it reaches 90% but had been getting 15 minutes usage. After the restore as new and a full charge the usage/ percentage is where I expect it to be with my usage pattern.

I thought I would post a screen shot of my usage after doing a restore as new today. All data usage and one 5 minute phone call. I probably spent 30 minutes adjusting all the settings in the apps. No iPod use.
I was getting about 4 hours usage at the 50% mark before 4.3.

ion628, i do not think your usage, so far, is too terrible. there are a lot of factors that go into usage, as you already know
i think the important part here is that it has improved and if you are happy with it. no need to constantly worry or obsess about it all the time. i have found when i do this it just simply ruins the "experience" ... just use the device like you normally would and enjoy it
also, keep in mind this is temporary anyways until the next OS is released, then we can praise or complain about that one
