    So I was trying to drain my battery all the way and it was getting close. At 10:37 it had maybe a little more than 20% and it showed my usage. But then like 2 hours later it had to about 10% but the usage only showed as dashes. What's up with that?

    Looks like you shouldn't have any complaint about YOUR battery life!

    Dood I'm not complaining I just don't understand why it doesn't show the usage in the 2nd screen shot, just two hours later.

    I am just pointing out what is more important, the fact you are not another one with a battery issue.

    mine has shown up as dashes many times. I don't understand it, but it's not broken, so i wouldn't worry about it.

    Always on a reset it will display this way.
    Also on some crashes it resets the timers.
    Once the iphone is recharged it will be back to normal.

    Yes, if you manually reset the phone via holding sleepwake+home the usage timers will display as dashes. It will zero out when you charge to full.

    I didn't reset it nor did it crash though. It was litterally just sitting there. I'm only concerned because I wanted to see the final usage before it died. I'm not realy upset about the battery power, I mean of course I wish it could go days before charging but that's not gonna happen. I just wanted that final usage time so I could judge my usage for the future.

    BTW if anyone cares I had everthing turned on, 3G, WiFi from time to time, Location, brightness was about 50%. So it's not all bad.
