    3GS Battery issues
    Okay, the battery for my 3gs phone improved slightly when I did a hard reset and restored it earlier, but it only last like 2 days.Now the battery gone bad again for instance losing 20%+ when I leave it overnight.I've tried to do hard reset on it for a few times but the time since last full charge for usage and standby(in settings->general) are both still the same (e.g.: usage 7 Hours,54mins ; Standby 7 Hours,54mins).Please tell me what to do cuz I need to use my phone often.Thanks.
    Cheers, Jesus <3 you!

    ??? - I have never had any smart phone last longer than about 2 days.
    If that's an issue, reckon I've had an issue with the battery on every smart phone I've ever owned.

    Maybe if you turn off wifi, bluetooth and every other thing running - all notifications, location services, auto mail downloading, etc.

    Of course, what would be the purpose of a smart phone then?

    I'd personally recommend you charge it every other day.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    To add to what bobtomay said also do smaller recharges regularly and you battery health will stay in good condition.
