    Go sell crazy somewhere else, we're all stocked up here.



    Sorry, dude. Not plugging anything. Just a frustrated iPhone user who solved a battery issue even if Apple does not. Cynical?

    I use my 4S the exact same way I used my 3GS (I also had a 3G before that) and I get BETTER battery life from my 4S than either of the previous two, while using it the exact, same way!



    I am not a stranger to critizing Apple (I bought an iPhone 4 and had to return it due to dropped calls/crappy reception......I've knocked Apple and the iPhone 4 here), but I am pleasantly surprised by my iPhone 4S battery life...



    Additionally, I really love the whole/entire iPhone 4S experience, much improved over my short iPhone 4 taste.....

    Not trolling at all,- there's a reason the Morphie pack is such a big seller.

    The only thing I disabled was iTunes syncing over WiFi. Before after 12 hours my phone would be dead. Today after that change I'm still sitting on 73% battery life and it's been 12 hours.

    Yeah, okay. I wouldn't want to make a suggestion that would help anyone. As soon as I figure out how to do it, consider it one. And please don't offer any helpful suggestions.

    That's true, but I experimented over a few nights last week. Turning Wi-Fi sync off resulted in no battery drain over 7 hours on my 4S. Turning Wi-Fi sync on resulted in a 7% battery drop in the same time frame with all other settings the same. I suspect that maintaining the connection to the router (staying ready to sync, possibly?) is one possible battery drain.



    Even when not connected to power, my iPhone shows up in my iTunes when I am in a Wi-Fi coverage area. It must take some kind of power to maintain the connection, shouldn't it?

    Just basic stuff. LCD's have always been battery drainers, as has Wifi.



    You gotta turn off the WiFi. That conserves a lot of battery. If you're not surfin', turn OFF the WiFi.



    Other than that, battery is okay compared to iPhone 4. Push mail is flaky though.

    No - you don't need to have your phone plugged into power to sync with iTunes over wifi. I'm syncing my iPhone right now...







    Unless you mean auto-sync?

    The Hell's wrong with you? Mine won't let me sync WITHOUT being plugged into mah computer.



    I wish they had 3G sync. Oh, and does your computer HAVE to be on for this?

    Battery issues isn't anything new from Apple. After I updated my good old iPhone 3GS to some latest of version (can't remember the exact number) i got the same issue, the problem was resolved via software update in mater of few weeks.



    Hopefully this will be the same thing as I have ordered iPhone 4S and looking to received it next week and don't want to experience this issue
