    I charge my iPhone 3G about twice a day.. I use youtube a lot and text a lot all day long and I find the days that I don't use youtube are the days I only need to charge once...How often do you charge yours?:apple:

    Generally leave it in the dock overnight while i sleep! So once a day!

    But i wouldn't use it that heavily during the day! It has on the odd time over ever ran out off battery on me once or twice in a day!

    I don't have a specific schedule. I generally just charge it when I either have the time or it needs it.

    Same as Andi86, I drop it onto the dock each night as I go to bed, for an overnight charge (the phone, not me :))

    I can usually get a little under 2 days out of it. I don't use a lot of the applications excessively, so I don't think I charge as often as other people.

    My iPhone always charges when it is not in use so it depends on the day :)

    Well, I get about 2 days of standby and ~6 hours of usage. So about every other day.

    being on tmobile has zero to do with it. my girlfriend uses my first gen iphone on tmobile and constantly gripes about the battery life on the iphone. She's always texting and on facebook and crap like that though. Plus she never hits the sleep button when throwing the phone in her purse, so no telling what all gets hit when in there.

    I charge my every day. I usually have about 50% battery remaining at the end of each day, but I always like to start each day with a full battery!

    Usually every day... but it depends because sometimes I barely use my iPhone so the battery is still above 80% (I'd say), so I leave it.

    If I'm using it a lot, 2 or 3 times a day. Plug it into the car charger during my AM/PM commute. Plug it in at home to sync, update or develop apps.

    If I'm not using it much, maybe only every other day or so when I notice the battery gauge getting below one half.

    I have to charge mine every day. I usually do it at night. I text a lot and email some so I use a ton of battery.

    Daily, I charge it inside my car and at work. Then it gets charged while docked over night. I use it often because of the capabilities the apps can offer.

    mine is usually at 10% by the time I get to bed, between texting/facebook/email/apps I use a lot of battery. Most of my battery is lost from texting I think though, i am constantly texting. Up to somewhere around 5500 messages a month

    I always leave it on during the night and start charging when I get home from work

    So, once a day

    I charge mine nightly as well. I usually only text, but I mean A LOT of texting.. I have been using close to 18000 messages a month. I leave 3G off unless Im browsing the internet and I normally go to bed with about 8 hours of usage, 14-16 hours of stand-by with about 25-40% depending on how much internet time I used.
