    Even at 100%, the battery dies in about 20-40 minutes. I tried restoring about 5 times, no luck. I got the phone replaced about 3 months ago, so it hasn't hit the 300 charge cycle, but I read somewhere that Apple charges you for it. The iPhone 4 is obviously still under warranty. So will Apple replace it for free?

    EDIT: I close out my apps in Mutlitasking, so that's not an issue either.

    Unless I am mistaken the iPhone 4 comes with a 1 year warranty so you should be fine. The only time the charge for a battery replacement is when it is out of warranty.

    So are you just taking a completely blind guess or are you the next Miss Cleo?
    My phone is jailbroken and I get great battery life.

    Just restore with 4.1 and go to the Genius Bar. Your phone can be replaced.
