Do not update to 5.0.1 if you previously had no battery issue!
Had no Phone battery issues until updated to 5.0.1. For anyone who has no battey issues, DO NOT UPDATE! Phone battery drain now i ridiculous! ARGH!!!
I just spent 3 hours on phone with applecare troubleshooting incl. reset. didnt work. They told me another patch will come out. I said how do I know my phone battery will work better then. Dont want to reload everything and rest after patch and be back at square one, wasting that many hours again. now have to replace phone. Trying to get an appointment within a reasonable time to pick up replacement.

Here is a copy/paste from another thread I just posted on.
For me, the simplest solution was being able to turn 3G on and off. There is a spot on my way to school each day that without fail, will drop calls. As long as I had 3G off, I was golden. Since the toggle is no longer there with the 4s, I had many, many dropped calls. After awhile, I just didn't bother calling knowing the call would be dropped. Calls were also garbled and people couldn't understand me.
I could no longer make or receive phone calls in buildings at school or in a school's elevator like I previously could as long as I had 3G off.
Yes, one time all data stopped and I had to do a hard reset as others have experienced.
So the deal breaker for me was no longer having the 3G toggle. I don't care if it's hardware, software or the carrier. I could make and receive phone calls successfully when 3G was turned off. I returned my 4s and I'm back on my 4.
^ I hear ya, AppleSmart. I was really disappointed when I first discovered it was missing from the 4S but hopeful that Apple would enable that setting in the iOS 5.0.1 update. Couldn't believe it when they didn't. So glad to have this feature back again.

Exactly, Irish Rose! I knew it wouldn't be part of the update. I was astonished to go into my local Apple store last weekend and while talking to one of the employees, discovered he had no idea about the toggle not there. He'd just gotten a 4s that day. I wonder how he's doing with his new phone.
