    Am I the only one who feels like the battery life on the 3G is either the same if not worse than the first generation iPhone?

    You are correct. My old one would last up to 3 days. I am lucky if i make it through 8 hours with the new one... And most items are shut off...

    I noticed the same thing too. I noticed a change when I turned the 3G off in the Network settings. It clearly tells you that 3G loads data faster, but may decrease battery life. I find it weird that they would not make the battery life better with 3G.

    So I simply turn 3G on/off when I want to use the browser. No what I would want to do, but it saves my battery life.
