    So how's your battery doing thus far? It seems my battery drains 1% every couple minutes in safari or searching the app store, is this normal?

    I'm debating turning off the battery indicator, I like having it up there but not seeing my % drain... lol

    I know what ya mean, sometimes I find myself just watching the % drain and timing it lol. I'll eventually get over it I'm sure.

    But I average around 7-10 hours "usage" time. Which is fantastic. I use wifi non stop and play games, check email, record/edit HD video etc

    Couldn't be happier with the battery life.

    Great battery life, absolutely no problems. If your having problems check your settings.

    Battery is looking great. Coming from an old 3G that I had to charge at least 2, if not 3 times a day during my daily moderate to heavy usage, the iPhone 4's battery is wonderful. I can still kill it in a day with heavy usage, but I think part of that is the habit to recharge it when it gets below... say 50% or so. I'm so used to that being my time to start thinking about charging the next time I get a chance that I forget it could probably finish the day off with the remaining 30-40% I may have.

    This app does absolutely nothing. I mean the tips are already well known and waiting for your battery to drain to 20% and then engaging the app did nothing in my opinion.

    When at home if I use wifi I'll get better usage times as opposed to 3G?

    Keep in mind, battery performance may be affected by your signal strength. My battery always lasts longer when I have 5 bars than it does when I have 1-2.

    Yes, much better.

    I think as long as you hold the signal, it doesn't affect it as much, it's when you have a bad signal and it's constantly searching for a signal or falling off 3G to EDGE, etc. When I had my 3G jailbroken and I was in an area that got poor 3G coverage, I'd just turn off 3G and stick to EDGE to make sure it wouldn't kill my battery connecting and disconnecting.

    Mine is strange, actually. It lasted 1.5 hours last night and only dropped 6% after I pulled it off the charger once it hit 100%, but when I let it charge overnight, it seems to drain more quickly when taken off. Is this normal?

    i get about 7 hours of usage, but I'm contantly using the yahoo messenger app, which i'm convinced is one of the biggest battery drains ever :(
