    Since the last update, it seems like the battery drains faster than ever. Is anyone else having a similar issue?
    Thanks in advance for any info.

    Haven't noticed a difference, but I haven't been looking! I'll monitor and let you know!

    Hmmmm. Not a clue. When I have some time, I'll look around to see if anyone has any suggestions.

    Hi Molly,

    I thought that the same-when I started reading all these posts about battery issue. Maybe I did, I do not know--however, I did do the reset as some members mentioned, and it seemed to go back to the normal battery life I was used to prior to the update. I used it quite a bit Sunday-most of the day, Monday night and Tuesday night. On Wednesday, the battery was down to 7%. So I figured I would drain it to 0% since I had not done so this last month. Sure did take a lot of time to drain it down. In fact it took about 4 hours to drain my battery from 7% to 0% today, while playing music with the screen off.

    I was very surprised about how long 7% goes with this use. I am sure, if was surfing the web or playing a movie-the battery would have drained quicker...though not sure.

    Thanks ski, just to make sure I am on the same page, it's the reset all settings, correct?

    No, not that one. I did the (soft) reset from pressing the power switch and the home button at the same time.

    I don't think I came across that recommendation to do the reset of all settings, but there's multiple threads talking about battery, wifi, etc--that I may have missed it.
