you have gotten a refurbished one back which is normal practice from :apple:

if the battery is so bad you should contact :apple: and have them replace the phone again.

Without much use

Means:

Push email exchange
Google Mail Pull once every 30 minutes
Gpush - pushes gmail to phone via Notifications
No other notifications
Music listening - under one hour
No web browsing
One or two texts.... definitely under ten
Read a few emails
Game play = 30 minutes max

Usage like this means battery will die within 16 hours

you sold me with push mail there. that is killing your battery life.
I used to have 5 mail accounts set to use push mail, i was listening to music for 10 min each way to work. needed to charge my phone every day around 2100 since it drained all my battery. turned off all push mail now and only uses fetch mail. now my battery lasts around 2 days. all depending on how much i use the phone.

16 hours standby is low, but it depends on what your usage is. Can you check your usage stats in Settings > General > Usage near the end of the day and let us know what it says?

sounds like a dying battery to me, i keep all services on, have 4 push email accounts, generally get around 3-4 hours usage/day according to iphone usage tab, and can generally last from 6am Monday till about 8pm Tuesday, with 1:00-1:30 'phone' time or less per day... under what I would hope, but acceptable,

OP's battery life: ****-poor bad, to speak frankly.

also if you need to have push mail really badly buy Mail Notifier its about 4-5 bucks not sure on the exact price but with this it gets push notifcations from AOL Gmail Live and pop is coming soon but with this app I can turn off push and fetch all together and it will tell me when i get something deliverd and then get the mail when i want to. I've been very impressed with my batterylife with not having push mail and fetch on 24/7.
