    Ok so I got a new iPhone around early february or so, now for some reason my stand by time is a lot worse than what it was,could it be because of apps that are running on the background using my location? its seems the longer I have been using my phone the worse the worse my battery is getting.

    I do have my phone jailbroken but I only have a few things and even after the jailbreak I was getting crazy amounts of stand by and usage times.

    I keep location off for just about everything except 2 or 3 apps that require it to be on. I am also jailbroken and so far haven't noticed any battery issues since I got the 4S 2 months ago.

    anyways, gotta love jailbreaking; unstable and or conflicting apps/tweaks .. mystery battery drains

    Only problem is that they have the new update. So I can't restore any more

    not sure if Apple has officially stopped signing 5.0.1 - you might want to just verify that

    If you restore thru iTunes it will download and put the latest update that apple has out (currently iOS 5.1). I did it yesterday and it was worth losing the jailbreak. My battery life has improved a lot since I did.

    Unfortunately Apple has stopped signing iOS 5.0.1. They were fast this time...

    Restore to factory settings, add some apps, songs, pics to make it look natural and return to apple store, explain that the battery is dying very quickly. If they don't cover it for free under the manufacturer warranty, I'd get it repaired 3rd party or even attempt to do the repair yourself. It's relatively easy and inexpensive.

    I feel one of the biggest drain is the location thingy. Turn that off and you pretty save up quite a lot of juice.
