    Remember that an Iphone is a computer
    An Iphone is a computer with a CPU, memory etc. The OS should really include an App that lets you see the CPU usage, memory usage etc...

    My battery was draining like nuts (10%/hour) in standby mode, and I tried all the above tips in a blind manner without success until the point where I decided to understand what was going on!

    First of all just like any other PC it should do NOTHING most of the time. That is the CPU should be idle 90% of the time.

    Buy (unfortunately!) an app such as System Status and check your CPU usage. If it shows something like 80% activity, you have some app that is looping! Check the system log and I bet you that you will find zillion of log entries for an app trying to do something over and over. In my case it was Email, which was trying and failing to connect every 30s because I had no network! This is obviously a bug! So disabling 3G or Wifi has exactly the counter effect as expected. It drains the battery by preventing email to connect and forcing it to loop!

    I’m travelling in a foreign country at the moment so I have no 3G and no WiFi. The only option was to disable email.
