    I recently got my 3g iphone replaced for a brand new one, and at first when i sync'd my new phone i didnt get all the music on it, however, it still had all my apps and contacts and such. The battery laster a good 5 and a half hours of normal use (texting, mail, safari, few calls) before giving me the 10% warning in which i charged it. I charged it fully, sync'd my songs, and after that, ive only been getting about 3 hours off of my battery. Now i know its not the battery but what could be the problem? my settings have remained identical : 3g on, push off, location on, wifi off, brightness ~20%.

    I dont understand that how after syncing my songs (not even my apps) that the battery could now be draining faster.

    Any Ideas?

    This is your problem. Location services is a big power drain. There should be no need to leave it on all the time. Turn it on if and when you need it.

    I have:

    3G - On
    WiFi - On
    Bluetooth - Off (unless going handsfree)
    Location Services - Off
    Screen Brightness - ~20%

    I am easily getting 6 - 7 hours of usage a day between browsing, phone, games etc. At the end of the day I very rarely have hit 20% but do on occasion when my usage is higher.

    Hope that helps.

    i had location services on before i did the sync though, and i got pretty good battery life.

    its just that now after the sync, my battery is completely dead 3 hours later, 20% warning normally coming in at about the 2 1/2 usage mark. and again, only songs were sync'd
