Recent Battery Drain Issues 4 and 4s

In the last week my iphone 4s has begun to drain rapidly.  Normal behavior was a charge every 2 to 3 days based on usage.  I have not changed my usage patterns, no upgrades have been performed, and no changes to any of my apps or settings.  My battery is now depleted with in a half a day and must be charged twice daily.  In my work environment there are several people that have the iphone 4s as well as the iphone 4, three other persons besides my self began with this same similar issue with in the same time frame.  I have also notice that at the top left the 3g goes to a circle then will switch back very frequently, this is the only change that I have notice since the behavior started to occur and the other users with this issue have noticed the same thing.  Is this a carrier issue since this is affecting more than one phone?  Any assistance is greatly appreciated!
