Your battery drain could be related to constant tower search but in my experience it is almost always an App gone rogue after an update. Try downloading Wakelock Detector and see if any apps are continually waking up your phone or keeping it awake.
thanks for responding, sorry for late reply, was on vacation, anyway yes I did a PRL and Profile update immediately after the 4.3 update.
I havent did the factory reset yet because im having so much trouble finding a way to save my contacts, I tried using Google but it so confusing, my problem im having with Google is, for some reason Google only saves 26 random contacts instead of all of them, is there some setting in my phone I need to adjust? Or is there a setting in Google I need to change to make all my contacts export to google?
Or is there any other alternatives to saving my contacts so I can perform a factory reset?
