**read my previous post about putting it in airplane mode** It's similar to powering it off thus not pulling data for anything which doesn't pull on the battery.

Sometime I woke up at 93 also but I can't duplicate it only thing I can tell is it seems to happen when I leave it docked on charger longer than I normally do .. Like bed at 9pm till 7 am vs bed at 1130 pm till 7am

I ended up buying the juice pack today..I can't afford to be stuck somewhere with a dead phone..So hopefully that Juice pack helps.

went to the apple store yesterday... the "genius" did diagnostics on my phone and then told me it was operating normally and that i should reduce the brightness or wait for a software update to come out. I asked when the next update would be released as i beta test using a developer account... he didnt know.
I got home and then found the 5.1 update. Battery life is still terrible, nothing compared to my old iphone4

updated to 5.01 and it resolved most of the problems with battery life. I have a feeling no matter what you do the battery drain will always be an issue. I took a 4 hour hike using a GPS app (sportypal) the whole time and taking over 30 pictures and making no phone calls. it went from 100% to 20% by the end of the 4 hour walk.

I got the iPhone 4S for Sprint about a month ago, and I have noticed that battery life as slowly getting worse. I use to go a whole day and still be around 50% but now I around 30% at the end of the day. If this pattern continues I'll be charging my phone during the day in about 2 months.

I've had mine for about 5 days, and noticed the battery life was a tad bit better than my Droid X. I realized recently that my Wifi was on all the time (since I liked the phone to hook right up to my network when I got home), and that the battery was getting eaten up pretty quick. I'd leave for work (8.5 hour day) with a 100% charge, and come home with a 45-50% charge with moderate use (one or two phone calls, texting about 20 times, Facebook checks and some browsing). I noticed even sitting around in standby, the battery would drop about 1% every 30 minutes or so. I turned wi fi off, and noticed that there was no noticeable drain after well over an hour in standby. So I'd have to say that wi fi is a major culprit. It does a connection search routinely, and this eats up the battery. Even on a wifi network, I think it eats the battery even if you aren't surfing.
I have all my location settings ON, and here are my Cloud settings, which I think has a lot to do with the battery life. I'm gonna run it through a full work day tomorrow with these settings, and let you guys know how it fairs.

Here's how I am fairing so far today. Not too shabby, but this is some pretty light use. It's doing better than my Android, and I am pushing Gmail right now. Light browsing, email checking and response, notifications for Facebook, checking out Twitter, and texting.

over 20% drop over nite
First post in this forum, new iPhone user. Got the 4s on 10.14 from verizon.
I charged my phone last night before i went to bed and it was at 97%. I had my alarm set for 7:15am. I woke up and it was at 75%. What the heck? I looked at my usage and the Usage and Standby where nearly identical. 7 hours, 29 Usage, 7 hours, 40 minutes standby. how is that possible when I was sleeping? Does having an alarm constantly tick away battery life? I pulled up all the apps I had "open" and killed them all. Since then, the Usage and Standby time have seperated a bit but still bothered that it happened?
Is there any log I can look at to see what was happening during those 7 hours. I looked at the messages log for 12/5 and 12/6 but nothing stood out.

I wonder is usage refers to the phone polling to get emails or notifications. Mine sure as heck doesn't do that when idle. There may be some setting that you have on that should be shut off- I'd review this thread: http://forums.tipb.com/iphone-4s-for...anagement.html
I don't go totally crazy with the settings- I never go into airplane mode, but I always turn off wi fi away from home and make sure the apps are closed down.

Wifi was off as the baby monitor gets in the way and Fetch New Data is off and set to manually. Brightnet was at 70% roughly, but the screen was off. Location was on, but limited by apps. I am thinking that some background app was running. Not sure why, but i keep going back to thinking its Camera+, but I have not proof, just one of those apps i use alot.
