    Got an e-mail from Apple a few days ago, will be replying to it over the next day or so. I urge everyone to take a few minutes out to send their stats over to Apple so they can get the battery problems sorted out.

    EDIT: BatteryLog can not be attached to this thread due to incompatibility of the file format. PM me and I can forward it to you. Remember to include your e-mail addy.

    It's good to see Apple are doing something, anything, to acknowledge the 3.1 issues. Although I would still prefer to see a formal statement from Apple themselves, advising people of the best course of action.

    Fingers crossed the 3G I pick up on Wednesday has no issues, regardless of which firmware it comes out the box with. Although, on saying that, from what I'm told the Genius will upgrade to 3.1 regardless before letting you leave the sore.

    I for sure deffo noticed the slump in the battery life on the new OS 3.1. On a normal week, I would maybe charge it 2-3 times. With the 3GS (on the same settings) - I am having to charge it almost every night or so.

    Hope they iron the bugs out soon.

    Either your being sarcastic, or genuinely lazy.

    See here ... for starters.

    Remember to include your e-mail addys when you fire the PM's across.

    Once installed - you can uninstall (for whatever reason) from the following:
    Settings>general>profiles>battery life logging

    3rd iPhone 3Gs in 3 months. All of them autolaunch Mail, Safari, Ipod

    Well, I didn't know that Apple was getting into the Automation business.
    Due to what I perceived as 'Out of the box' battery life issue, I'm on my 3rd iPhone in 3 months, and the batteries were/are being drained by Apple Apps that I NEVER TURN ON. They go on by themselves!!!

    During my exploration as to whey the battery life on this phone literally SUCKED, I found and downloaded the non Apple App 'System Activity Monitor' It's an awesome app that shows How Many Resouces (Free Memory, Wired Memory, Active, Inactive, Page Ins & Outs, CPU Usage, by User, System, Programs in use,etc.) and noticed that WITHOUT ME HAVING LAUNCHED ANY APPLE APPS, and I don't have Mail enabled so why would it launch Mail? but this, and the other 2 iPhones have a sneaky way to SUCK system resources, hence battery life, without the user EVER KNOWING what was going on in the background.

    I use System Actitvity to force quit open apps. I put in a call to Apple iPhone Tech Support and posted a message on Apple.com/feedback. I also suggested that Apple add a triangle or green light to their icons to show which applications are active at any given time (just like the aliases in the dock have triangle.)

    Anybody have ANY IDEA why these iPhones launch programs all on their own? The robots have landed, the droids have wiggled into the matrix.
    HELP!!!

    I've installed mine, thank you very much for sending it. Further question: I assume no further action is required on my part? I see it in my Profiles, do I need do anything to fire off the report to the :apple:?

    I would e-mail Jason over at Applecare (as stated in his e-mail, see opening post). Give it a week or so and send the logs over - this will ensure you've given a reasonable time period for the data to be accumulated.


    ;)
