    Heh.... not the phone, I got a virus that has been kicking my ass since last saturday and have barely, very lightly used my phone and this is the result. Pretty incredible because I've never had these kinds of results. How you use your phone really matters, I guess.

    Btw, I'm feeling much better today. :D

    Yeah, my battery lasts a long time when I plug in in every so often while winding it down.....

    Ha! Yeah, I agree, it looks like that. But I didn't. I literally didn't use my phone for the first 2 days. I have been uber sick. And no game playing. After those 2 days, I wanted to see how long that battery could go.

    Do you see the text "iPhone has been plugged in since the last full charge"? That means that the usage times are not correct for one and only one charge. Also no viruses exist for the iPhone or any other iDevice. So far there have only been two worms and they only effect jailbroken iPhones that have OpenSSH installed and the default root password.

    He doesn't ACTUALLY have a virus on his iPhone, the OP is ill and hasn't used his phone much at all due to being ill. The OP has a virus, not the iPhone.

    Where bunnies are welcome.
    Even without the "plugged in since the last full charge,” I wouldn’t consider this great battery life. However, I care about “usage,” not “standby."

    Somewhere in PA.
    One time I was at my grandmothers's house for the weekend, and I didn't have my charger, it was at like 1% when I got home monday night.

    Apple devices have great battery life.

    Thats pretty normal. If you didnt have 3 days standby it would probably be at 6.5 hours. Which is what I get.

    3 days of standby accounts for nearly 30% of battery power alone. Add that to the 12% still left and they are sitting at 42% battery left after 5 hours of use...

    I was purposely trying to drain my battery by using GPS, LED flash and leaving the screen on and the iPhone finally died with 6 hours of usage. To reiterate, I was trying to drain the battery as fast as possible and it took 6 hours. This battery is awesome!

    Also, the battery lasts longer I you have orientation lock on. Try it, you'll see.

    What was it that I didn't read? Because I read the entire OP before posting.
