Well my battery is fully charged now and glowing with the plug at the top....I was right below 50% after using heavy today...It took about 2 hrs and 45 min to gain a full charge...my usage and standy features are up also...I guess all is a go... Here my usage on iphone today... Surfed the web for over 45-60 min throughout the day... Listen to music on the way to work 30min Watched tv episode 30 min Checked email off and on throughout the day responding to 4-5 messages. SMS about 5-8 times demo to about 5 different people. checked weather couple of times Played with google maps 15 min atleast took 4 photos and emailed to daughter Edited contacts approx 5 min Made several several calls Average day on the iphone for me...The biggest drain came from watching the Tv show on full brightness...I usually keep brightness right below the 1/2 mark. WIFI turned off at work for approx 5 hours otherwise it searches and uses edge when not around.
