    Hi Mr. Cook,

    I wanted to let you know as a customer how disappointed I am so far with the iPhone 4S's battery life.

    I have attached a screenshot showing how I only got 4 hours of usage while on 3G yesterday with iCloud, Ping, and Location Services turned off.

    Please look into this battery life issue that myself and many others are having. As well as re-enable the ability in iOS 5 to turn off the 3G radio like there used to be.

    If you go to http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1253142 it is a forum thread detailing the battery issues some are having with the 4S for a larger sample size.

    Thank you Mr. Cook,
    - My name

    Is there anything you guys would add/change to this email before I send it to him? Too long? Lemme know :)

    While you're at it, could you send Obama an email about the pothole on my street?

    Cut the text down by 75% and you're more likely to have someone read it.

    Wait a couple weeks for iOS5.01 and it may not be necessary at all.

    And precisely why would he read your email when he's busy running a multi-BILLION dollar company?

    He is not Steve Jobs you know.

    Ok, you asked... change "everyone is" to "some are"
    "a forum thread detailing the battery issues some are having"

    I am not experiencing battery issues on my 4S

    i would add at the end of the e-mail

    "by the way, i know i haven't given a chance for the battery to get better or "break itself in" -- even though its been one week from release-- but don't let that get in the way of my complaints"

    Thanks MacDawg fixed it :)

    HarHar ;)

    I've already calibrated the battery 5 times and it hasn't helped. No way in hell waiting longer to "break in" the battery is going to change much when my usage time is at 15 minutes and at 89% already...
