    Does my battery suck??

    3 hours 36 minutes of usage
    1 Day 3 Hours of standby
    and I just got the 20% battery warning

    NO WIFI or Bluetooth

    maybe an hours worth of calls and the rest SMS, email and a little web.
    I have Mail checking every 1/2 hour.

    Are the numbers normal?? It seems a bit low to me but I don't want to waste my time if these numbers are the norm.

    I get around 3 hours of usage and a little less than 20 hour of standby time
    before the 20% batt signal comes on. Maybe because I keep my wifi on
    even when I'm just on edge.

    Im a major txt message user. How much power does text messaging take up from the battery? Is it more so a thing of having the screen on that drains the battery more?

    That seems normal. The 'usage' indicator can be tricky because certain applications take up more battery life than others do. While you may listen to songs on your iPod for 3 hours, remember that this uses up way less battery than internet use does. Even though they would both go under the usage category.

    After looking at Apple's specs it seems pretty normal. You're about on par with me. I have e-mail on manual though.

    Apple just gave me a brand new phone out of the box due to battery issues. It is the most current phone because it was already updated to 1.1.1 and the battery was fully charged.

    The life has been great. I have 50% left on my phone and the usage is at 3hrs 34 min and standby 19hrs 34 min. Talk time is 3 min so most of my use is text, Internet and email. Data sent is 853kb and received is 3.8 mb.

    Make sure u reset ur stats after each charge so you can track it better.
