    I read that 2.1 firmware is supposed to increase it but...

    Today the only thing I used was the new Itunes 8.0 and my battery is still fully charged...

    Usage: 2 hours 41 minutes
    Standby: 12 hours and 15 minutes

    I can post a pic if you guys want...

    Location services off and 3g was on the entire day.

    I watched a 25min video and listened to like 40-1hour worth of music. Talk time was probably around 10 minutes though...

    Anyone else have a sudden increase in battery life?

    It could be incorrectly reading the battery life...

    That is a glitch that sometimes happens (has happened to me twice). Shut your phone off and turn back on. Real battery life will be displayed.

    Either that or you have the limited edition Harry Potter phone with never ending battery.

    But I'm betting it's a glitch.

    My phone seems to show less than half the battery left, but when I plug it in the green battery on the screen always shows more. Dunno why...
