    I was wondering how long everyone else's battery is lasting. As soon as I got home I charged mine to 100% and then played with it almost non-stop until it almost died in 7 hours. This is my first iPhone, so is this normal for the battery?

    disable 3g when not using, same with location services, and turn off push.

    You played with it for 7 hours straight and are complaining? That's pretty solid especially if you used a bunch of apps, especially games.

    yes

    yes, same issue here. Charged it up fully, been doing some email, dl'ing over 3G, some wifi DL's etc.

    Now, seven hours later I am at like 33%. Not sure, but I think the battery is a little larger than the 3g phone.

    Alright sounds good, thanks guys. I was just making sure that my battery was normal...like I said first iPhone and I had no clue what I should expect from it.

    To Duke, I wasn't complaining, I was asking if it was normal.
