    Well I get about a day and I only make about an hour worth of phone call at the most. I watch a couple of you tube videos and check my mail and browse the web (wifi). I use the iPod function aswell for no more than a couple of hours.

    Its quite annoying beacuse I'm really concious about it.

    Is this normal for my usage?

    Thanks

    um... that sounds like a fair bit of usage.
    so wifi is on that whole time?

    one hour of calls.
    youtube via wifi
    ipod for about 2-3 hours?


    at what time do you get to 20%?

    I charge mine every single night. The internet seems to suck up the battery the most, especially if you're using edge instead of wifi.

    very rarely will I not charge mine every night. Sometimes I turn it off and that'll be enough for the next day. With the amount of stuff that gets used ie Internet and email the days of having 3 or 4 days usage are over
