    IPHONE - 3GS 16gb, - Battery Drain Since Version 4.2.1 Software Upgrade

    Before upgrading to v4.2.1 the battery would last a few days even with the wi-fi running 24/7 and using apps phone etc..

    However, since the software upgrade, the battery is failing to last a full working day ?

    Any ideas or suggestions ?

    Cheers

    No, I thought that was a feature of the Iphone 4 only ?? (or did the upgrade include that ? )

    How do you check the running apps ?

    Thanks

    The upgrade included that....

    Press the home button twice quickly, the little bar at the bottom will show you all the running app a, press and hold a running app and a little x will appear on each app, exit the ones you want.
    This should save the power quite a bit!

    I had been using tom-tom and it was running in the background for ages until I figured out how to shut it down....
