Is this usual. I'm using software version 4.3.1. I'm using it for the music for the duration.
It should last a lot longer if you're only listening to music. You most likely have a bunch of background processes running that are draining the battery faster than normal. There was a NYT article on this very subject just a couple of days ago: http://pogue.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/05/23/four-ways-to-make-your-battery-last-longer/ and a follow-up on TUAW: http://www.tuaw.com/2011/05/24/four-tips-for-better-iphone-battery-life/
If none of those suggestions solves your problem, you should call AppleCare or take it to a store if you have one near you.
OP, you never said what model you had. If you're using a 3GS then it's reasonable performance (at least from my experience, can't wait to upgrade to something with better battery life)
That must be some thick Batter if it takes 7 hours to drain.
Sorry forgot to mention it's an iphone 4
In British English it's 'batsman'. 'Batter' is US/Australian usage.
I think he is talking about the food related batter, such as pancake batter, not the baseball one ;-)
By "listening to music" do you mean using the iPod app or are you streaming music using something like Pandora?
iPhone 4 promises 6 hours of internet use. So if you're streaming music, 7 hours is normal (or even better than normal).
Their are so many (many) variables that your original post is lacking that can help determine if this is usual or unusual.
-Are you jailbroken, if yes, what apps have you installed.
-Do you have "Push" email set ON (also, how many emails accounts do you have set up).
-Do you have "Push Notifications" set to ON.
-Do you have "Location Services" set to ON.
-Are you streaming you media or is it saved locally.
-Whats you screen brightness set to.
-Do you live in an area of good or bad reception. having a weaker signal (low bars) means your phone has to work harder to maintain that connection causing you to loose battery.
-Are you playing graphic intense games.
-Are you on 3G or EDGE, and how often are you on WiFi.
I don't know what normal is, but the average from what I've seen here on the forum have been between 5-7hrs of various usage patterns.
This is just so awesome right here.
Push off, Location off. As for music i mean the ipod application. I'm not streaming anything. Anyway I upgraded to 4.3.3 and battery is now lasting 12-13 hours of continuous use.
I'd go to Apple and have them look at it. My former 3GS had erratic battery behavior at one point and they replaced it for me.
