Hi all
I'd like to know how Skype drains phone battery life? I have a friend with an identical iphone model and isp and software with Skype always running on it with no battery issues whatsoever.

however mine can only manage 8 hours of standby from full charge with no usage with Skype running, or 30 hours standby without Skype running which also includes 2 hours of cellular web browsing. (Cellular data is always on). The battery life issue sometimes doesn't appear even if I don't make any changes to settings so I'm stumped on how to get skype working on my iphone without the battery drain.

Skype banned imo so... Not sure of some free alternative now.

Thanks
Edmond

So just for clarification your phone functions the same as the other phone except when you use Skype you phone battery drains much faster than the identical device. I that correct?
