Well, i can say that i wasnt looking at my phone as much wondering what percentage i was at, and amazingly enough - it didnt really bother me to not see the percentage which i thought for sure would get the best of my OCD lol. BUT, what did get to me was i got my 20% noti this afternoon and i had time so i fig'd i'd charge up completely.......WELL!! that felt like the looooooongest charge up of my life Not so much when it reached the half way or 3/4 way point - it was when it 'appeared' to be charged (i'd estimate it was at about 90/95ish), but it stiiiiiiiill had a way to go to reach the (100%) plug icon mark. THAT. WAS. PAINFUL. lmao!!
But, i'm stickin it out - still no % icon How are you doin with it mistah m? did you fall off the wagon LOL

nicely done! I was just the opposite when i got my 4S - as soon as i had it set up i turned on the percentage icon right away. So basically it was weird to me to not have it. Like i said, i tried once before to turn it off but didnt last a day or two, but this time around i think because i'm just so done with all the hype of "omg hows your battery life, usage, percentage...blah blah blah" etc. etc. that i'm just ready to move on & not have it on anymore
I also actually like the fact that when i'm using my phone i cant see the 100% fall to 99, 98, 97 etc when i'm using it alot. NOW that used to freak me out!! LOL

oooooooooooohhhh SNAP!! Sooooooo SORRY BLiNK
mistah m, ya know what else i like about the percentage NOT showing - at night sometimes i'd put my phone into airplane mode - naturally you'll loose a percent or 2, which urked me lol. BUT what really would tweak my melon is on the nights i didnt do the airplane mode thing and the weather was sh!t, i'd loose up to 7%! I'd be roaring when i got up in the morning like WTF?!?! LOL so i'm happy to not see either of those happening, whether it was just the 1-2%(airplane mode) or up to 7%(3G/wifi)

hey mistah m.....day 4. how you doin so far? I actually think i've got this whole "needing to see the percentage" thing beat It seriously has not phased me what so ever that i have not been able to see an exact battery number, in fact i think i feel less anxiety about it! I can say tho, i have had the urge to check the standby/usage but i have refrained. Just going from memory i've been charging my phone every 1-1/2 to 2 days - my usual deal Plus i just did my monthly reboot last night so even if i did look i'd get nothing but dashes right now LOL

Taking it back to the days before all this info was at your fingertips is undoubtedly one of the best things I've done... it's 3rd on the list behind getting married and getting an iPhone....until we have kids. LOL
- 08-02-2012, 07:49 AM #113
awesome! I have to agree, it is a good thing i've done this as well. My list is a little different than yours ATM LOL: getting married & having kids are 1 & 2
IF i had to gauge where my batt is at now, i'd gestimate between 40-50% & i came off the charger yesterday morn around 6am SO unless i plan a day trip today, i wont charge again till maybe bedtime tonight or even wait till tomorrow morning.

LOL, now imagine if the pop-up for that notification really read that!!
Yea, most of the time when i see the pop up i'll plug in too, but even now, that doesnt freak me out anymore. Prior to all this, when i saw the pop up i'd be like OMG NEED. TO. CHARGE. NOW. lol because i HATED my phone going below 20% - at times it would just urk me! LOL there were times if my phone was at 50 or 75% i'd be jonesin to plug in!
now i'm just like, yea......what ever

I'm not one to keep an eye on battery. I have chargers handy everywhere and am constantly charging
my phone when i can. Yesterday I didn't. I started using my phone at 10am yesterday and had what i
would call some pretty basic usage. By the time I got home at 8pm, I was at 20%.

BLiNK, just a few thoughts - perhaps something is caught up running in the background. Have you tried rebooting yet?
how is your signal strength?
Also, you said you did a full cycle discharge/charge up, I know on a rare occassion it takes a charge or two before it kicks into lasting longer for standby/usage. So maybe see how your device is behaving after a couple of charges too
Also, are you running ios6b4?
Last but not least, you know the drill......restore as new as last resort
