    Hi,

    With maybr 5 calls, 1 film, and an hour of playing games my battery is close to running out.

    Are there any tips out there about how to extend life?

    The only ones I have seen are:
    - Turn off 3G
    - Turn off Wi-Fi

    Any others?

    WiFi doesn't really make a big difference (the values for battery life on Apple's website are actually with WiFi on).

    Lowering the screen's brightness can make a big difference though.

    Turning off locations services and notifications would probably help the most.

    Also, if you have Push setup in Mail, turn that to a lower interval (lowest possible will be best) if your situation allows for it. This will, too, help.

    as suggested I turned off location services and my accu weather would not work so you may want to leave that on or turn it on if you need it.
