    talk time on 3gs is dependant on if u have 3g enabled or not, but with 3g enabled and the regular stuff ur phone should be good for 5 hr of operation.

    yea the battery life sucks on this device, but compared to other devices its still better.

    now imagine using your iphone 3GS as a gps, u can see the percentage drop in real time LOL

    In fact the signal is also weak in 3gs comparing to 3g in my Iphone..

    Now that is strange. My 3g would last about 12 hours before it went into the 20% warning. While it takes around 24 hours for my 3gs to go into the 20%.

    Both running exactly the same apps, push notifications on, and push email on.

    Yup. And when did the iPhone start showing "bars" of batteries. Something doesn't sound right with the story at all.
