4.3 update draining my battery


4.3 update draining my battery

I got the 4.3 update this morning and ever since its been installed I have to recharge my battery every couple of hours. Is there a fix for this?


Re: 4.3 update draining my battery

I am having the exact same problem.  I called sprint earlier in the week, was told it was a "known" issue in addition to the billion time notifications...I think that was fixed by clearing my cache/memory.  I haven't been able to get the phone to charge tonight.  I was told to do a factory reset, but didn't want to lose old texts...if I can get it to charge and start up, I will reset.....I declined the update at least 2 weeks, before breaking down and accepting. I had a feeling it would be bad.....

So, Sprint, if these are "known" issues, why the heck was the update pushed through??????????????????????????????????????


Re: 4.3 update draining my battery


Thanks for your post. Have you cleared the cache on the phone since the update? Also, when charging the battery are you letting it get a full charge and then releasing it from the charger? Please let me know. Thanks!
