    So I got the 6 today. I like the phone but I'm going to be returning it. I stopped usage except wifi. The problem is shit reception. I noticed at work it was constantly "no sevice " where I never had that before on my 4s. I literally had to stand at the window to get it one "dot". I went home and noticed the same thing so I placed it side by side with a 5s and it had half the bars almost always. Even worse, the wifi also is bad. Lots of pausing of the loading bar. Unusual with the 4s in the same spots. Maybe I got a defective one. I read online a mixed bag of reviews on reception. I might try another one.

    I find it's better now. Odd, but it is. I played around with a Samsung note of my friends yesterday and the s4. Not a fan. Lots of choppiness. Very bizarre layout. Meh. Kickass battery and better screen size. My issue so far with the 6 Is I expected better battery. Hits the teens by night. Moderate usage. Not leaps and bounds from the 4s to be honest. Maybe I'll get the plus.

    Oh my bad. I didn't see the last page to this thread which had the post saying you bought it. Did you update to iOS 8.0.2?

    Yeah. Not sure if it's a coincidence but the reception has improved it seems.

    I don't know what i did but yeah big improvement. I make a habit of swiping of all the apps routinely and it seems to make a difference. I didn't really think apps in the background took any battery but they do. Unplugged it at 9 this morning and midnight now and 61%. My biggest issue is reception. It's good everywhere but where I work the reception is not good for anyone. With the 4s I would always have reception when others didn't. Now I don't either. I notice when I walk outside I get voicemail a lot now. Another person I work with did the same upgrade as me and has the same complaint. Wonder if the plus is any better.

    let the battery die and charge it completely. conditions it well that way.

    I thought lithium ion batteries didn't get affected that way

    Do you have WiFi calling turned on? I had this problem with my Android phone, where I would leave the house and text messages and voicemails would start coming in.

    WiFi calling? Is that like a voip setting? I don't think I have anything like that unless it's called something else.

    Yes, itispretty much voip. I know this option is available through T-Mobile, but I am not sure if all carriers have that option. This setting would be available In your phone settings.
