    Default Battery drains fast. What settings to fix?
    I have a new (to me) iPhone 4, jailbroken and Gevey SIMmed (T-Mobile). Even turned off (standby) the battery drains far too fast. I don't push anything or have anything that seems to ME to be a potential drain (I even have location services turned off). Are there specific settings to use to maintain the battery?

    The seller says he replaced the battery (so, ostensibly, I can assume that he, too, had a problem . . . but this was a frequent complaint with iPhone 4, correct?)

    If you could give me some settings I should be sure to use or NOT to use--some sort of checklist--that would a big help for me.

    Thanks DKTa and Xha! Frustrated, I did a google search (shoulda been first line of defense instead of bothering you all). I had virtually everything off, so I didn't quite get it. There are differing opinions about cellular data on or off and wifi off or on, so I have both turned off now, but I like to access email by Wifi. Also recommended is turning BlueTooth off when not in the car. turning theses services off and on seems like a PITA.

    The one thing that was startlingly new to me, was closing out applications running in the background. That was new for me:

    Thanks you guys for taking the time to respond!
