Device wipe - better battery life?
Yet another one..
It is known that a restore for iPhone gives much better battery life. My friend was facing problems with his battery life on his iPhone 4s and i convinced him to do a restore. And his battery life jumped from 8 hours to 2 days.
On my 9900 when i am only on cellular coverage (wifi off) i get crappy battery life out of 3G (6-8 hours). But on edge it is trippled. Some users have very good battery life on 3G also (without wifi). Will a complete device wipe gladden me? Does wipe change that much?

My friend restored to setting too. After the process it was like he didnt do anything, eveything was where it used to be.
And after my wipe i will load every app again...

I had an issue with my keyboard, and I wiped the phone and then restored it and it fixed the problem, at least temporarily. I'm experiencing it again, so I'm thinking a wipe might be in order. I don't want to get it fixed because there is the potential I'll lose the awesome battery life I've been getting with the shipped battery if they send me a refurb.

When I sent mine in for the refirb, it not only fixed the keyboard problem (which I knew anyway because VZW told me it is a known hardware issue), but my battery life hasn't changed at all. They didn't send me a new battery with the refirb. You keep your battery and send only the phone back I believe. I have an extra battery and I very rarely need to change to the spare the same day. I do, however, change the batteries back and forth for usage only. Don't be afraid of the refirb. Seriously not an issue.
