I see all these post about bad battery life and for me I am VERY happy with mine. Coming from a Treo 700wx and a Q my iPhone runs circles around their battery life. I use the iPod at work to listen to podcast, make a good bit of phone calls, browse the web on breaks and I'm still only at around 50% when I leave work. My other phones were hitting the car charger on the way home but not my iPhone. Days use out of the battery with no problems.
