    After watching/reading the keynote from today, I was curious how all the older iPhones (June-September) are doing battery wise? The new battery claims seem pretty nice.

    And also, what was apples policy on batteries again? How much to get a new one?

    my battery life (after 1 year) is MUCH WORSE than it was the day i bought it. i'd say the health is around 50-60%

    mine was doing pretty good, but I just sold it about a week ago, If you want it replaced you should be able to just go into a apple store and tell them that the battery dies too quickly, and i think they will replace yours...

    Thats for an iPhone out of warranty. I called apple and they said i still have 91 days left on my warranty. I have an appointment tomorrow with my local store. What will they do to check my battery life?

    New Iphone - same ol' battery design?

    Anybody experiencing battery issues since the iPhone is only a year old?

    I don't understand. Isn't Apple trying to lure more business users as for the iPhone? It seems to be a wonderful tool (after reading about new software that can create video conferencing on the iphone).

    I'm very concerned about battery life however..... prolly the poorest design is not having a replacable battery (unlike 99% of all other hardware manufactures).

    Sure, get the applecare plan..... but how long am I out of phone while they service it?

    Anybody use this for business?

    I can't tell a difference with respect to the battery life. Still get amazing battery life.

    Tough call for me since I've had it replaced in October '07. But, it's going strong, as I keep it charged and in its dock when I'm at home and charged while in the car. It's gotten down to the red one time and I immediately set up my MB and recharged it to full capacity. :cool:

    How long were you out of using your iphone while the battery was being replaced? (Thanks for your reply in advance)

    I've had mine for a year, with no noticeable decrease in battery life.

    I get only like 3 and a half hours of usage, maybe someitmes 4. Sucks, but battery technology has only gone so far.
