    Just upgraded from 2G to the 3GS and can't remember if I am supposed to drain the new battery completely until it shuts down or just recharge as needed?

    I just got a 3gs yesterday, June 19.. I have found so far
    that battery life is actually crap. My 1st gen phone had
    way better battery life. Right now, as I write this I have
    15% battery left @ 5 hours 2 minutes. Supposedly the 3gs
    should have better battery life.

    I am hoping that after a couple of full charges and breaking
    the battery in the life will get better.

    Is that a fair comparison? Maybe turn off 3G and compare batteries between 1G and 3GS. The 3G drains batteries like crazy. My bar hardly moves all day if I turn it off.
