    Anyone else having this problem? I'm pretty confident that these are not accurate. I work during the day..maybe I used my phone for an hour when it said 4 hrs...

    For the others, it was the end of the day and I maybe used the phone for 3 hrs tops. Push is off. Fetch is every 15 minutes.

    I'm not sure how push/fetch effect the usage statistics but I've been noticing some strangeness. I'm using the iPhone 4 a lot more than I ever used the 3G/3GS so maybe I'm just noticing this more but it does seem the counters are off. Standby time increases during actual usage (calls/apps) along with actual usage, not sure if that's normal or not.

    I'm experiencing same behavior with current period/call time. Made 2 calls today, no more than 1 min each and my call time shown is 4 hours as well.

    I just added up my phone call usage from my recent calls list and it added up to around 90 minutes. I went by the recent call list, and luckily it went all the way to only 2 or 3 days after I got the phone. So it's only missing a few calls. Anyway the usage time says 3hr 55min. That's WAY off.

    Even if I added my FaceTime calls it would only be around 140-145 minutes. Still way off.

    What I don't like is that the standby time is the actual time the phone has been on off the charger with the usage time included. I pretty much just pay attention to the usage unless I haven't used the phone much at all during the day.

    I do use the ipod but only for the 30 minute commute. Certainly not 4- 10 hrs...
