    Ok. So I updated yesterday without any problems and actually thought my battery life had improved slightly. Well...I plugged in my phone to charge overnight and today have noticed the battery depleting rather quickly. Checked my battery status and it has a usage time of 6hrs and 59 min. and a standby time of 6 hrs and 59 min. I'm at work and have not been using my phone very much. I also closed out all of the "multi-tasking" apps in the "background" (just in case)and it hasn't helped. Any recommendations?!?

    The rate of drain on mine is even faster. I was fully charged when I unplugged this morning. I listened to radio on my local internet radio app, checked a few emails, then quit all the unnecessry apps that were in the multi-tasking taskbar.

    Now, a mere 1 hour after after I unplugged and went to work, I am at 69%.

    I know my usage patterns can be high, but this is ridiculous. Last night, the battery went from 40% to 0 in less than 2 hours, doing absolutely nothing! I thought a reset might fix that, but apparently not...

    What is going on?

    Ok. Well...I plugged in my iphone to charge yesterday (night) and this morning after it had charged ALL night the percentage of battery was at 99%. It can't even get to 100. I'm at work now...and so far my usage and standby times are different today (much more of an improvement since yesterday where they were the same!) but...the battery still seems to be draining quicker than before. Boo.

    Poor battery life ios4

    Upgrade my 32g 3GS, love the new look and feel, mail is substantially improved but whereas I could previously get through the day on a charge, now the battery life seems to be literally going down before my eyes. Is this meant to induce us to buy an iphpne4 with the bigger battery.

    This is a big problem apple!!!

    Please fix it and quickly
