    Just got my 3G today & so far so good.

    I want to drain the battery & recharge like I have read on this forum. I have the ipod playing random & have 3G on. What else can I do to drain the battery?

    set brightness to max. instead of playing the ipod, run some free streaming radio app like last fm as well. that should do it. although i highly doubt running down the battery is going to do anything good anyway.

    just listen to some of your favorite music on youtube...that will drain your battery pretty quickly.

    I have read somewhere in this forum that draining the battery & recharging helps set the battery icon to be more accurate so I thought I would give it a try.

    Have Fetch every 15 minutes, max brightness
    watch videos on Youtube, and make sure you are on 3G network
    that should do it.
