    Hi,

    When I left with my iPhone it was at 100% charge. I have it set to wifi.

    After about 20 minutes without using it charge went down to 97%.

    Received 2 missed calls, took 2 photos and posting on this forum I'm down to 93%. Still on wifi.

    Is this normal?

    Seems not normal to me.

    How old is your iPhone? The battery could be on its last legs.

    Hi bought it refreshed from best buy. It's from October. It's a 3gs. It's now down to 88% as I post. Listened to 2 voice mails and made one skype call in addition to previous.

    Of course the battery will drain when using the phone, and your case does not seem unreasonable. If its going to be an issue for you then your best bet would be too visit the Apple store and see what they can do.

    What services have you got switched on? GPS, Push Notifications etc?

    Your battery usage is normal. You get 6 hours on wifi only and 5 hours on 3G/EDGE. Also, battery usage is affected by signal strength and what other stuff you have on (like Push, Bluetooth, etc.).

    Hi one minute auto lock.

    I've been using it pretty moderately since 5am and now it's 10:25 and down to 57%.
