    Maybe it had bad signal in the locker. It was probably searching for a connection the whole time.

    This. You should have turned it off or put it in airplane mode. I've found that bad signal is the NUMBER ONE killer of the battery.

    +1 on Airplane Mode. Since you wont have it on your person no need to have it searching for a signal.

    You will save lots of battery..
    Please add thanks if I have helped you in anyway. I will always spread the Aloha and reciprocate.

    Very true! Whenever I go underground using the train here in NYC, I always turn on airplane mode or else the phone begins to search for signal when it loses it. If I don't use airplane mode, I usually have a very depleted battery once I get out of the subway system.
