    Poll: Are you noticing less battery life after updating to 3.1 ?

    After updating to 3.1, I have CLEARLY noticed less battery life on my iPhone3G. This is a HUGE problem for me - I need my phone! My usage has not changed - I use it the same amount. I used to be able to go from morning until bedtime on one charge with 3.0.1, but now with 3.1 my battery is in the red by the time I get home from work.

    I have read a few other threads on this topic, but zero polls. Here is one thread but after requesting noticed no poll had been added. http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?p=8536426#post8536426

    Well my area just upgraded to 3g and now with 3g turned on I am getting horrible battery life, I can't make it through the day, push notification's are off. I get about 2 1/2 hours of browsing the web, sending messages, taking pics and my battery is completely gone.

    definitely noticeable battery drain per day on my 3GS since upgrading...

    i could get by on a full charge for 2 days before the iphone died, but now i'll be very lucky to get that..

    no difference in day to day activities or apps used either...

    I noticed problems with battery on 3.0

    3.1 seems slightly better though - 2G iPhone

    Your poll needs more options. How about improved battery life? There have been a few times that I've noticed way better battery usage. Like 9 hours of use and 2 days since charge. Obviously that wasn't heavy use of games or GPS, but I did listen to audiobooks and music a bunch. I'd never seen that kind of battery usage before.

    I think mine seems fine now after a restore or two. Doesn't matter anyway...I'll be upgrading to a 3GS this weekend.

    Mine seems to be the same on an iPhone 3g, maybe battery life has even improved. But I use wifi more often than 3g/edge.
