100% battery in the am!
I have posted here before about having issues when waking up in the am my iphone is usually between 92-96%. I am on my second one. First one had this issue and I brought it back a week later and then my second one and the one I got my wife have all had this issue. I am just interested if any of the recent iphones purchased have had this issue! I love my phone and the battery life is good during the day. But I would like to have a fully charged battery in the am!

Do you leave it on the charger all night? I have heard that if you do this, the phone charges to 100%, but then stops charging until the phone discharges to a certain point, then it charges back up to 100%. If you unplug it during the "down" time, you get a reduced charge. You have to plug it in, wait for it to hit 100%, then pull the plug as soon as it hits that point. My suggestion is to give it a full charge before you hit the hay, then shut it off for the night. Or, unplug it upon waking, check the %, and if it is low, plug it back in while you sh** shower and shave, and it'll be good to go before you walk out the door. That's my method.

I'm not being sarcastic at all but I'd suggest turning the battery percentage indicator off. You're talking a deficiency of 4 - 8%, which is nothing. That's if you can even trust the indicator, which may be faulty by the same percentage.
I don't have your problem but I tried using the percentage indicator for a few days and it drove me batty always being aware of exactly how much power I had left; worried too much. My other phones (and many other types of devices) had a simple bar indicator and it works fine. Turning off that percentage gave me peace of mind.

have you tried a complete battery cycle? use it till it turns off, then put it on charge until it hits 100%. that should fix whatever issue you are having i would think. I'm on my second phone (broke the screen on my first) and my wife has one and none of them have this issue. hers is on 5.01 and I'm running 5.1 beta 3

what type of charger are you using? its weird, I just got a seidio charging dock and it does that.. I will wake up to it like 94%. I read a few texts or whatever, put it back on charger while I shower and its 100 when im done.
reason I ask, before i got the charging dock and just used the apple charger, it always was at 100% in morning.. curious to know anyone else's experience..

jebulls, i didnt know you were still having an issue with this. In my household, theres 4 iphones- 2 iphone4 and 2 iphone4S. None of them have this issue you & your wife are seeing. When we plug in to charge overnight, in the morning it shows 100% with the 'plug' icon in the battery until we take them off the charger.
have you tried a cycle charge like someone has suggested? idr if you've tried that already.

When you say exchange them, you mean swap it out for another iPhone or a whole different device altogether? Like you said, it must've been that batch of phones that store had gotten in. If your gonna do an even swap, if it's feasible for you what I'd suggest is going to a completely different store still within your area but further away from the original store. Maybe there'd be a different batch of phones, ya know?

I must not have read his original post. Sorry. Based on what he wrote here it didn't make sense. Plus having sold phones for three years now I have dealt with my fair share of customers who will come back and exchange phones six times for something small. Not to say that this is the case, but any time I have a customer that exchanges more than twice I usually just ask them "excuse me but what makes you think after the first two times the third fourth or fifth time makes it any better?"
