    JUST serial #s + Good/Bad battery life
    Only the first 5 digits

    Please report your serial # and if you have bad or good battery life

    Just wondering if there was a bad batch made based on serial #s...

    The 1st two I've had (original and warranty replacement - both bad battery life) are C38GJxxxxxxx

    Btw if this is a dumb question I apologize and I'll simply ask the moderators to remove it ;)

    Good lord man, I've tried/turned off everything already ;)

    I appreciate your trying to help but I just need serial #s in this thread, not tips. There's already a huge battery thread on tips.

    Phone lasts me 3 days of light use or 2 days of regular use on a single charge. A couple of days after I received the device I let it drain to 1% before charging and that really seemed to help.

    1st one I had had horrible battery life. Lose 30% overnight in standby, crackling speaker, up volume button was crunchy and got real hot during sync.

    The replacement, which I upgraded to the 64gb is so much better. Already have 9 hours standby, 90 minutes of usage and at 83%. And not any other problems.

    Both of them have the starting of DNP serial number.

    This has been done a few times before and others have found nothing that matches up to a bad batch that I could find.

    Im on AT&T...

    Didn't someone already try to prove there was a correlation between serial number and battery life? There wasn't btw.

    This. But just to play along:

    C39GF

    I haven't power cycled this one yet, so my slightly crappy battery life might turn around.

    Thread/source? I'll be happy to have the mods take this down if there's already a thread on this...

    That would suck btw. I hope there is a concrete pattern we could nail down =/

    Good battery life. Have power cycled it twice, and have gotten between 7.5-8 hours of battery life both times.

    I don't know what it means, I just know they all used to follow the format that others are posting and it suddenly changed this round.

    I appreciate the OP's attempt at tracking this, but there is a huge fact being overlooked here...

    Tons of people with iPhone 4 (not 4S) have experienced significantly worse battery life after updating to iOS 5 and doing a clean install, my sister included. Same hardware, huge battery hit.

    It's the software - not a bad batch of phones.
