    Considering that iOS 4.3 is causing major battery drain on the GSM version of the iPhone 4, do people here think that the Verizon iPhone 4 (which I use daily) have the same problem? Seriously, I am having to charge twice in a day but I only had it for 3 days so far so maybe I need more charge cycles (10) perhaps?

    Any thoughts? I was hoping that my battery life would be better on my iPhone 4 than my HTC Incredible and so far, not much there.

    I've had mine since February 7th, did a full charge then discharge then, and again at the beginning of March. Mine's been un-plugged since 5:00AM CST and is now on 71%, at 7PM. It'll get better.

    Watched a 2 hour movie that I have saved on my phone, some web searching, emails, a couple of calls, several texts, etc. Pretty light day IMHO.

    No problem at all. My current record was at 7 hours of usage and 2+ days of standby.

    What kind of usage are you getting and what do you consider "need to charge"? I just ran this phone through a full overnight and the next morning on less than 1/4 charge, though with minimal usage.

    My advice, turn off the number and just enjoy it.

    I am getting around 7-8 hours of usage but I need like 12-13 hours of usage since I work long hours. Maybe my expectations of iPhone 4 battery life was too high? Either that I need the mophie battery case?
