What is running my battery down on my iphone?


My battery went from 99% to 67% in 2 hours. No programs running that I can see.

Is your phone jailbroke?


If so, then pull up sbsettings and then pull up processes and you can tell what programs are still running in the background. Then all you do is kill those processes and free up memory and you're good.

They are all RUNNING. Hold one of them down until the minus sign appears. Touch the minus sign on each of the apps to shut them down.

yeah, most apps try to locate you when you open them (even apps that have no reason to locate you... games and whatnot), so if you don't set them to not locate you, i'm sure that'll burn the hell out of a battery and run up your data.

after reading that article, i went turn off the locate stuff for most apps and set my mail to manual... i'm tired of hearing the mail alert when i'm trying to sleep.
