    Default Battery life sucks

    Do any of you have really bad battery life like my wife's iphone4? I'll put the phone to charge at night and once its completely charged, i'll unplug it. We'll go to bed and when we wake up the battery is at 16% or completely dead with no use. I tried a factory reset and that didn't help at all. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    Default Battery life sucks

    So you have restored ? And setup as new ? Or did you load from a backup ?

    I would try setting up as new and make sure you don't have a specific app that is causing the issue

    She got the phone in late June of this year, so about 5 months.

    Not sure why my response to Peligro911 didn't show up, but yes, I did restore the phone and set it up as new. The only app that she has is Facebook.

    Wipe and restore as new.

    Also check for anything that can be running actively that will be using power.

    I can have mine charged up and not loose 10% over night off the charger.



    * Also it could be your iCloud Back up running at night, but that would not use that much battery power.
