    Did you consider the fact you have jailbroken the iPhone might have something to do with your battery problems? And have you tried to update to 2.0.2? 2.0.2 hasn't fixed the problems for everyone but before giving up on the phone you may want to at least try to use it with the latest firmware and stock before giving up on it.

    Battery draining can be the result of many issues. You don't give any specifics on how much usage you are getting from a charge. The number one culprit is usually leaving location services on (GPS). GPS is a huge battery drain and there is no reason to leave it on when you don't need it.

    And yes, when you jailbreak you are opening up the potential for any number of problems and if you don't know what you are doing you can experience a lot of problems.

    Yes you can undo a jailbreak. Go to the hacks section for specifics on how to do this as I run stock.

    All you need to do to restore is allow iTunes to restore to the newest firmware. Set the phone up as new one it's done. In general turn off not in use, wifi, location services, Bluetooth, and put the screen at half brightness should get you through the day fine.

    Have fun trying to get out of your contract. I guarantee you'll have more headaches in the x hours it takes you to deal with your cellular provider than you've had in your entire ownership of your iPhone thus far.
