    I took my first iPhone 3G (week 30 build) into the genius for light leak and dust under the screen. The new one is a week 34 build and I swear the battery lasts longer on this new phone. I switched off 3G just like I did on my last phone to help conserve power. Before needing charging my phone got to 5 hours and 8 minutes of usage and 3 days, 9 hours of standby. I've never had these times with my first phone.

    Must be nice to have the option of switching 3G off. Here in Japan, we can't do that - with my relatively heavy usage, I have to carry a UPB10 external battery with me during the day, as well as an AC adapter. I generally have to charge my iPhone 3G two-three times a day. :(

    Not bad.
    I'm getting about 6 hours of usage on my original iPhone. But I couldn't get 3 days of standby. The battery goes flat every day.

    i recently got mine here in nz... and its build week 34 as well.. and i get something similar to the person who created this post... i am actually trying to use it all up if i can in 2 days so that i will have enough to get through on my 3rd day.. but its great...
    i dont bother to turn my 3g off... just leave it on and use it at work to listen to music for 4 to 5 hours.. and still can get two full days out of it plus more at night to waste it so that i can charge...

    its great :)
