    iPhone 5, Telus, Toronto.

    My battery was crap.
    I could leave it alone for an hour and lose 20%.
    Would barely get half a day without getting low and needing a charge to make it through the day.
    I tried all the tips and tricks you find when searching for answers on this.

    2 weeks ago, there was a carrier settings update.
    I installed that, and also called Telus, spoke to someone in tech service.
    Explained my battery life, told him yes I tried all the things he started suggesting.

    I explained that the building I work in is a metal box with notoriously bad signal/slow data.
    He pushed an update to my SIM card, I said thank you and hung up.
    Not sure if it was the carrier settings update or the sim update, but my battery now rocks.
    Finally get a full day out of it.

    I mention this because it might be worth your while to call your carrier and ask for help.

    I got the update as well. I've noticed my phone holds the LTE signal better and also has better LTE reception.

    Has anyone found what was included in this update?

    I'm on Telus in Victoria

    When I asked the tech service guy, he said he didn't know.
    Maybe that was true, maybe not.

    I wonder if it might have been a patch to block the 'Hacked Carrier Update' that iTweakiOS put out last month.

    Just curious, what's the version # of the carrier? iOS 7 came with 14.5 on Rogers and my LTE battery life is a lot better that iOS 6 was.
