    Question - my 3GS is acting weird. Battery life was terrible but I turned off push and it is reasonable again. However in the last day or two, even with the phone just sitting there at the home screen & locked, or doing something like listening to the ipod (which is a low low battery resource) with the screen locked, it will go from 3/4 bar to red in a few minutes. If I shut off the phone and restart it will show nearly a full battery again. After a little while the phone will go red. Again, I turn it off, back on, the battery is full, and then back to red after a few minutes.

    I fully charged it last night, I have made no phone calls, checked email only once, and listened to the ipod for about 2 hours. Push is off, no other apps have been run. What gives?

    I may take to apple. If they replace, do I get new or someone elses old refurb?

    Thanks in advance MR -
