I always have everything switched on (GPS/Bluetooth/WIFI etc) and emails set to push use it moderately throughout the day for calls/texts/facebook etc and would take it off charge in the morning approx 0645 and it would start blipping for battery charging about 2200'ish.
Updated to the new ICS on Thursday last week and since then my battery usage has gone downhill at a rapid rate of knots to the point that it has drained by mid afternoon with no use
Even with everything turned off since the update I have noticed that the icon for upload/download is constantly flashing and my data usage is going through the roof.
The phone gets very hot as well
I have tried factory resets and still no better.
Any ideas on where to go now?
If u have Android 4.0.3 then
go to settings-----More-----Mobile Networks----Uncheck Use Packet Data
most probably this will solve the problem....i had same kind of problem some months ago, that was solved by this method....
post here if it is right or not?
