    So until today, my phone has been eating battery.

    Today I seem to have the magic iphone. I charged it all night (left it plugged into the macbook) and since unplugging it around 7 am it hasn't dropped a bit, still shows 100% and plugging it into the computer just shows the plug icon...

    I'm guessing it's going to die with no warning or something like that...

    UPDATE: I powercycled it and now it shows about 60%. wtf?

    Are you using 2.0.2 firmware? Reports seem to be trickling in on this issue. It's happening to me using 2.0.2. Rebooting is the only way to get the battery icon to update. I restored last night and set up as a new phone ...didn't help.

    I had this happen right after the 2.0.2 update (I think). A hard reset and a normal discharge/charge cycle seemed to resolve the issue for me.

    I didn't have to discharge it completely but I don't see how it could hurt.

    heh. After being stuck at about 50% all day, the phone has decided to start moving the meter...it's red now and just gave me the 10% warning. Guess that's a good sign it's on its way to being back to normal.

    I've had this happen to me too. I think I was using 2.0.1 firmware at the time on my 3G. The battery meter just suddenly started draining very fast towards the end of the day and got to its normal level when it normally would with me. It was nice to see the full battery meter for such a long time though
