I was just wondering what people are getting for their battery life LTE on besides at work basement when I turn to 3G I have a iPhone 5 Verizon 16GB White I use Airplane mode when viable (Subway) when no service WIFI on when in house Bluetooth off always DND off always Locations on but for only Maps, Siri, Weather, Find my Phone iCloud Off besides photo stream (Wifi only) and find my phone Screen brightness on auto I have been getting 5-6 hours usage and 16+ hours standby right now I am at 75% battery 1 hour 52 minutes usage 5 hours 39 minute standby I normally don't run down my phone to 0-1%Usually only run my battery to 20-30% coming from a Galaxy Nexus this is pure blissmy Nexus on 4G got maybe 6 hours usage/standby combined. It was terrible. I charged it 2-3 times a day Usually I unplug my phone at 7:00 AM and don't charge it until 8-9 PM or even later at night What are your actually usage stats?
I just moved into a basement apartment, and now i get little to no reception. Im not looking forward to missing calls and going outside to make calls in the winter. Are there any tricks for getting better reception?I saw a few apps that claim to boost signal strength, but im assuming that these are useless. Macbook Mac OS X (10.5.6)
Hey everyone!So I seem to have a really strange issue, and it just recently started happening with my iPhone 3GIf Im in an area where I dont have cell coverage for a while (ie: a basement, or subway) once I get above ground, the phone wont reconnect to the cell network.The cell signal indicator will say Searching... for a while but will either change to No Service or stay on Searching... even though Im in an area that I know has coverage.The only way to get the phone to reconnect to either Reboot, Power Off/On, or Turn Airplane Mode On then Off.This is really starting to get frustrating since I have to do one of the above or my phone just wont connect and stay that way until I do something.I first noticed this with iPhone OS 3.0.1, but just recently did a fresh restore to 3.1.2.Has anyone else experienced this?? Any idea what causes this, and is there a solution?Thanks!!Also.. if I happen to lose 3G, the phone seems to stay on Edge forever even if Im in an area with clear 3G coverage. iPhone 3G iPhone OS 3.1.2
Hi all,Im still having major issues with my iPhone 3G 16gb black 3.0.1.When a call comes in, about 75% of the time the screen doesnt light up to tell me and stays black. The only way I know a call is coming in is because of the blip blip blip noises coming from my speakers (as theyre nearby).Its only just recently been restored and is not jb, it has a brand new SIM (only used it a month or so) and all my settings appear to be ok.Its usually showing about 3-4 bars on o, very occasionally it finds Edge but never 3G. Im in a basement flat. The signal reliability and call quality appears to improve when I move to the front end of the flat but my office is based at the back and I cant move to the front of the flat to deal with this issue.Also in the middle of a call, if I move the phone away from my head for a second the call immediately drops. Apparently my head is a very efficient signal booster...Is this just a simple case of poor signal quality in my flat or something else?Many thanks, PC Windows Vista 64-bit
Hi all,Ive been going around and around in circles trying to fix my dodgy connection problems on my iPhone 3G 3.0. Was having major issues with connectivity, poor signal, dropped or forward-to-voicemail incoming calls, poor sound quality etc and 0 signal in some rooms in my flat.After weeks of discussions with O2, apple and you good folk here on the forums whats the solution?Restore and set up as a new phone! Dont restore from a backup!The problem here seems to be that any corrupted or duplicate settings get pushed back to the phone and the problems just carry over if you restore from a backup. By setting up as a new phone all that seems to be fixed.I have now gone from an average of 1-2 bars in my basement flat with terrible connectivity issues to 4-5 bars and 0 connectivity issues. This is in a small basement flat with thick walls. In rooms I previously had 0 signal in I now get on average 2-3 bars. Thats a huge improvement for 20 mins work.It may seem like an obvious suggestion but if others, like myself, have simply been restoring from a backup in order to save a little time setting everything up, then you should definitely consider restoring and setting up as new. It only took me around 15 mins to get all my email and calendar accounts working again, sync over a few albums, photos, google sync up my contacts and away you go, and the actual restore process only takes a few mins as we all know.If youre at the end of your tether (no pun intended!) Id advise doing this. Youll be surprised how much better your phone will perform.Cheers PC Windows Vista 64-bit
Hi all,I have just replaced my old iPhone 3G black 16GB with a brand new one (due to water damage!) but I am still having the same issues as I did with the previous phone:1) calls sometimes dropping randomly mid-conversation2) calls sometimes not going through at all (phone rings, sliding answer just turns screen blank)3) received calls often going straight to voice mailI am on O2 in the UK on the simplicity package. 3G in my area is strong (very strong) but I am in a basement flat, so the signal is weak. I have found that disabling 3G entirely makes the phone more reliable, with calls coming in, but the problem still persists occasionally even with it turned off. I am not sure if WiFi on/off has any effect.I am aware that there are some previous posts about this but rather than sifting through 100 peoples opinions I was wondering if there had been any news on these issues and if, perhaps, the new firmware 3.0 will fix this? Or perhaps even the iPhone 3G S will fix these issues.Any news, help, advice would be appreciated, as I am using this phone for business and having most of my calls divert straight to voice mail looks extremely unprofessional.Many thanks, PC Windows Vista 64-bit
I have 4 cpus and I was using the USB to sync with 1 of them and charge my iPhone on two others. I was working in the basement and tried to plug the USB and iPhone into the front port of the 4th computer and as soon as I did the computer instantly DIED. It will not power up now. The power supply measures voltage out correctly and hard drives power up.. But my computer is now DEAD. So I called our computer guru at work and was expecting him to laugh at me and say that what happend was impossible, only to hear him say the exact same thing happened to him. He plugged his into the front USB port just as I did and his mother board is now fried as well. Has this happend to anyone else and how does warranty cover this one? Windows P4X4 Windows Vista
Is there an external antenna for the iPhone that I can use in my house... the reception is pretty crappy in my house, as Im in a basement apartment, so Im looking for a simple reasonably priced way to boost the signal when Im at home MacBook 1.83 Mac OS X (10.4.11) Mac Mini 1.25
