    IPhone battery usage - worse on Verizon va ATT?

    We switched from AT&T to Verizon in June. We had unlocked iPhones purchased directly from Apple which we took over. Mine is 7+ and Mom's is 6s.

    I've been thinking the battery seems to run down much quicker than it did on AT&T. Today, by 2:30, it was down to 28% and I had hardly used it today! I mentioned it to Mom and she said hers seemed to be running down more quickly as well.

    Anyone think there is anything to this? Both AT&T and Verizon show excellent coverage in my area, both at home and work. I do think perhaps AT&T was slightly better at work. Don't notice much difference at work.

    With signals and other factors being fairly equal, I've always felt Verizon burned the batteries faster. The same phone seemed worse. At home the Droid turbo I have lasts way longer on TMobile than it does with my Verizon sim and the db readings were similar. With Android the bloat apps prob don't help but not sure why iPhone seems different also.

    My friend says his iPhone battery lasts longer on att than verizon so not sure what the difference is

    Alone experiencing reduced battery life on a phone after changing carriers, try resetting Network settings. In hindsight, why didn't I think of this?

    Settings - General - Reset - Reset Network Settings.

    It is 5:30 pm and battery is at 76%. If anything, I've used it more today after resetting than I did on Friday when it was at 28% at 2:30 pm.

    I used Verizon prepaid. My iphone 6 battery didn't go down that fast. I charged it and I used an app called battery doctor, when it done charging it would stop charging. it took 3 steps for it to be fully charged. let's say I have fully charged it, I go to sleep when I woke up, it would be still 100%

    This is good advice. Resetting Network settings can solve a lot of problems.
