If you're talking about issues with battery life after the 5.1.1 update, I've been having the same problems.
I don't want to turn this into an iphone discussion thread, but I tried a fix just last night that seems to be working better so far.

http://www.gottabemo...1-in-5-minutes/


Battery life was the least of the problems. Mute switch and volume buttons stopped worked, when in speakerphone mode, the mic didn't work, with incoming calls, there was no ringtone, just vibrating and calls would drop constantly. It seemed almost like a hardware issue, but it all started as soon as I installed the update.

It's a non-issue now, as I took it to Gamestop yesterday and get $235 in credit for it and now I'm working on flipping that credit to Best Buy. A little extra work, but far better than the $150 in credit Best Buy offered for it.

Did you folks try restoring? Make sure you have a backup, then do a restore and restore from backup. It would almost certainly fix any problems and you won't lose anything. For what it's worth I updated my iPhone 4 without any issues.

D'oh, that'll teach me for buying games early. Could have saved $5 on Ghost Recon.

Yup, tried the restore a couple of times. Four actually.
Yesterday was the first I've heard about the 'reset then let the battery drain to zero' trick. So far it is definately better, but I still have pretty much everything turned off, plus the brightness way down.

Been there, done that. Did restore first and then a clean factory wipe with no change. The only way to undo the problem, without a new version, is to backpedal the update to 5.1 or older. Unfortunately, the only way to do it is to have already had the phone jailbroken with Cydia prior to updating to 5.1.1. So no dice for me there...

And for the record as stated a page or two back, my 16GB iPhone 4 updated without a single problem. The 32GB had a different fate.

Shipping was free, but I am near the store enough it's easier to just stop in. Now I get to wait until Saturday for it to arrive.

Godfather Collection is about the same price at several other retailers, including Walmart.com for 29$. I would just order it there if you were really interested. But yeah it should auto adjust if you do wanna get it through BBY.

If I order the Godfather Collection now for store pickup, will the price auto adjust to $25 on Wednesday before I pick it up?


I've heard several people confirm that if the price is lower when you pick it up than when you order, it auto adjusts so you should be good.

Thanks for the info, guys. I took the red eye so I actually made it back home. Put together another $50 order with Zumba wii bundle and Jaws digi-book.

Online, however, Best Buy is still making headway, with domestic Web-based revenue growing 14% on good sales of tablets, mobile phones, appliances and e-readers. The retailer is losing steam in other sectors, however, including gaming, digital imaging, televisions and notebooks.

How are they still losing steam in gaming? o_O

killer blowout sales are good for CAGs, not exactly what investors want to see.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

Yeah, I paid $29 ($32 if you count shipping) for this a few months ago.... but I haven't gotten around to watching it yet :cry:. Wish I'd waited now...
