    My battery is surprising small on my iPhone 3G... After a full night of charging, it can take up to about five to six minutes of listening to music/using apps to have less than 10%.

    What should I do? This is almost unbearable. I suppose I could go to an Apple store, but money is tight right now.

    My iPhone isn't old, but it certainly isn't new. I'd say... it's around a year old.

    Is the phone over a year old? If so, apple care?

    If it's covered under warranty, you should be able to get a new phone. If not, you can have the battery swapped out. Their are plenty of places online that offer battery replacements for a reasonable place. Check it out.
