    Default 3G OLED Vita discharges battery completely when turned off

    I recently bought a PS Vita OLED model that just happened to have 3G/cellular network capability. The person I bought it from said the battery doesn't hold a charge over a day when turned off. I replaced the battery in hopes that would be the issue. Like before, the Vita had no charge after a day of being turned off. I removed the SIM card and turned off the GPS to no avail. Doing a Google search showed others had this problem as well but no real solution beyond what I did.

    Anyone have any thoughts on this?

    Thanks!

    I've come to the conclusion that the drain might be coming from the 3G modem. I read some posts that mention it and a couple folk had either replaced the modem or just yanked it out. I want to do this but I stripped the heads on the two screws that hold the modem down.

    If I'm able to get a bit and safely do this and it works, I'll let you know.
