    My iPhone 4 has been acting bizarre lately... Service keeps switching to 3G to edge to none whatsoever and the battery drains

    From 8:45 to 11:45 my phone goes from 100% battery to 50% when I used it 3/4 of the time using mostly safari

    Wifi off
    Location off
    Mail off
    60% brightness

    I think I need a replacement...
    What should I do? What will the Genuises tell me?

    3+ hours of constant Safari will take it's toll on the battery. In the end Apple decides if it should be replace and not us.

    If you do not use Safari for 3 hours does the battery fair better?:confused:

    Have you're effect ring it? If you have and it didn't work then it will probably be replaced.

    Restore the phone as new. Don't reinstall from a backup.

    Recharge it to full, then play with safari and see what you get.

    Apple won't give you a replacement if you are getting at least 5 hours of battery usage per charge cycle. That is what they consider a healthy, normal battery. If you got roughly 3 hours of Safari usage, and still have 50% left you have a decent battery.
