    That 1% is God's way of saying turn the percentage meter off. It will drive you mad.

    You returned a phone over 1% of battery life? Wow. Unless there were other REAL problems, you're the reason why costs are so high for iPhones. They have to keep replacing them for every single little tiny problem.

    who said its not a sign of defective battery with more problems to come in the future? I just paid $800 for the damn thing I want it to work like a new one.

    I never had that problem with my old 2g et 3g

    Fine then, in the future, when it becomes a real problem, then get it replaced. Dont act like its a pre-emptive strike. You arent going to miss that 1%. In fact, if you turn the battery % meter off, you'll never notice it was gone.

    But yeah, go ahead and keep getting them replaced. You're just going to keep getting refurbs which have their own inherent problems. Trust me, I've got problems with my iPhone, but I'll wait until they become real issues before I return it. Nothing is perfect. Its a phone.

    This same thing happened to me the first few days i charged my 3gs, but then it just stopped happening and it would charge to 100%. Not sure what exactly causes this problem
