Thread: Battery Life Problem!!!!!!!!

  1. #1
    Question Battery Life Problem!!!!!!!!
    So since you guys are much more informed and knowledgeable on these issues then I (just got my phone last friday 1st gen 4gb & came with v2.0 (then unlocked and jail broken using winpwn 2.0.0.3 )) I have read that when you unlock a phone that can have an effect on battery life.

    I have lowered the brightness setting and put it on auto

    I switch off wifi when not using

    Is there anything else that can be done?????

    Thanks in advance!!!!!

    turn off the auto notify of available wifi. greatly affects the battery life and i dont think having it unlocked will affect the battery life. turn push email off and have it fetch hourly or what ever you feel is good. those should help and download bossprefs to keep SSH off when not in use.
    this should help with your battery life =]

    Since you bought a 1st gen 4 GB, you have (I assume) bought a used iPhone that is ~ 1 year old. Did you buy it on ebay, or through an ad? Have you considered that the battery might not be in very good shape? If the battery was charged everyday for 1 year, depending on how the phone was used / treated, it might be near the end of its useful life. Unlocking should not effect the battery life.

    The reason it has an impact on battery life is because most installers/jailbreakers will put OpenSSH on your phone. And if SSH remains active, it will drain your battery in less than a day. Use Bossprefs or similar to turn SSH off when not using it, and you'll be fine.
    Get "iPod & iTunes for Dummies", it'll change your life.
