My iPhone 5 battery is dying quickly with data explosion

My iPhone 5 battery is dying quickly. No problems until a few weeks ago. This has corresponded with my "Communication and device services" devouring my entire data plan in the same period of time. No change in usage. Whats going on?

bom619,

Have you checked out your usage numbers on the iphone itself?

Settings... Cellular

Take a look at the list of apps and it will show you which apps are using the most data.

Also look at System Services at the bottom of the list. This will point out where the phone itself is using data.

Hope this helps.

bom619, I know the importance of enjoying the most battery life of your iPhone 5.. When you check the Battery Usage (Settings > General > Usage> Battery Usage) and Data usage (Settings > Cellular) which applications/function are shown with the most usage. Have there been any recent applications or updates in software to the phone when this issue began? Please share details so we can look into this for you.
