    i get very bad battery life with light usage..
    wifi is on and asks to join networks
    bluetooth is always off
    i use the internet a few times a day
    use the ipod a few times a day for 5-10 min periods
    and the battery is dead by 1030 pm.. and i unplug it every morning at 720 am..
    and wen the 20% battery life pop-up comes, with 1 minute,the 10% warning comes up..plus i think i have a few stuck pixels in mixed areas...
    so is this normal?

    By "ipod use" do you mean audio or video?

    But regardless that does seem fairly low. I'd take it in and show the apple store the usage stats. If anything, the stuck pixels make it worth of a return as well.

    Thats not good at all. I can usually go about 2 days without charging with moderate use. That is some audio use, lots of web browsing, mail, stocks, youtube, weathre, phone. Right now im running on 7 hours and 2 minutes use with 1 day 12 hours standby. Battery is low, but its still got some left in it.

    Your battery life is lower than average. I would suggest you to make an appointment with the Genius bar just in case they may want to change it.

    Pfsh, age isnt an excuse!! Anyway, yes, restore your phone and return it to apple, and they should hand you a brand new one.
