    After “upgrading” to 4.3.3, battery life was non existent. I turned everything off. Still, was losing about 20% an hour without any usage. I let the battery drain completely and the wall charged. At 100% the screen read, for emergency use only with a swipe. I swiped to check it, phone keyboard appears. Put down for 5 minutes and reset screen appeares. I tried to sync it with itunes only to get a 1611 error, which indicates a hardware problem. After searching for some remedy, seems that a battery replacement will correct the problem.

    Seems pretty obvious that the battery problem is directly related to the so-called upgrade. I had NO battery problem before. 4.3.3 fried my battery.

    Apparently, I’m not alone with this problem.

    Class action suit anyone?
