    Default Bad battery life?

    Not sure what's going on here but I'm pretty sure my battery life on 3G and or LTE is horrible, what you guys think? This is my 2nd iPhone 5 the other one had crappy battery to, but replaced that one due to marks all over new phone not cuz of battery.

    Two diff days. One was 3g other LTE

    Default Bad battery life?

    What cell service? I'm with bell and get pretty much 3-5 bars everywhere I go. LTE I don't get in some places, and the places I don't I turn it off when using 3G

    What do I do? I have everything off, email set to manual, all my apps are shut off to notify me, nothing is set to push other then iCloud and exchange.

    System services are all off to...

    There might be a carrier update for you on Bell (I say there might be because I'm on Rogers and yesterday they released a carrier update which has made my LTE far more stable). Go into settings >general >about and wait for a message to pop up. It should almost be immediate. If nothing pops up try waiting a couple days until bell pushes out the same update.

    Ya nothing popped up so guess have to wait and see if bell will push one. Not sure how a carrier update would help the battery though?

    Ya but why buy a battery when it's still under warranty? That makes no sense and not something that people should be doing... My battery is still bad
