    It's because of Siri
    It's always running in the background
    The issue is not so much that but the fact that it's constantly checking your location so turn that off in
    Settings->Location Services-> Siri
    I never activated siri in the first place, all activation and notifications are off, no email account set up. my wife took a total of about 20 pictures, and the dang thing shut off. the phone was straight off the charger, and showed full. (not JB)
    when i tried to turn it back on, it showed the red PLUG IN screen.
    WTF apple?
    Now i am starting to understand what the S stands for!
    SHOOT! Empty already?

    I turned off location and made two full battery charge cycle and it got better but according to recent reports this is because of a software bug so probably I'll just wait for the software apple will provide to improve by battery life. i hope the fix is coming real soon

    Update from last post; It wasnt the icloud either. I finally had to stop using my 3gs (old bootrom) as a phone. I took out the sim card and voila! the battery no longer drains. It will go on actual standby and lasted all night on 20% charge. So it's the network setting? and yes I did reset the network settings.
