Solution to iPhone 4S battery life?
Me and my girlfriend both have the iPhone 4S. And I've noticed how much of a battery loss the 4S is getting compared to my old 4 that I'm still trying to sell. I have the 4 stock running on iOS 5 and even though it doesn't have Siri, it still is holding a lot more of a charge than my 4S, at least 10-15% more charge doing the same amount of use. My idea was perhaps swapping batteries between the 4 and 4S since Apple stated that the 4S has about 100 hrs less in standby mode and 100 hrs more in 3G talk, I really don't need that extra juice going towards 3G talk since I only turn it on when I need info on the go plus I have the 200 MB plan, and I have excellent signal strength on Edge where I live. Anyone think my theory will work?

I just learned to stop using my computer like a laptop, touching it at every whim. I check it when it's truly necessary or when I have a little bit of down time. It's a new phone though, so the novelty hasn't worn down yet, so everyone is eager to have it out doing something to it.

Also, I noticed that the key battery drain happens between 100-80%. After that, if used correctly, it actually does pretty good leading down. I have to learn to charge it LESS. I'm putting it to the test tomorrow. I have a concert I'm attending tonight so I cant afford to lose battery, but from 8am Tuesday until 8am wednesday I will only charge the phone ONCE fi it reaches below 10%.
