    Someway I got really good battery life 9 h and 30 minutes on my iPhone 3G, how is that possibly? I have never got that much out of my iPhone not even when it was new.

    I thought people got bad battery from 3.1!

    You only used it for 2 minutse for calls. That's the most battery draining feature other than Safari. So you could've put on your iPod the whole time.

    I reset that every month I'm only allowed 500 MB of data so I got to keep a track on that. But your right I'm not a big talker on the phone. texts/email ftw :)

    True, but I had reset that one or two days earlier, but I'm pretty much always using Safari and playing music/podcasts.

    I don't make many calls, if any, and I don't get that kind of battery life. I mainly use it for safari.

    So, was that life totally in wifi? I get better battery life at home on wifi.

    Mostly wifi but I switch to 3G when I go to my lectures and whatnot. But probably 70% on wifi.

    I use Edge and wifi at home and 3G outside, brightness on auto and location services on. Push email I have turned off, dont use push for apps to.

    Look at my 3GS. I've been getting this amazing battery life for the two weeks since I restored and set it up as a new phone. Everything is on but Bluetooth.

    I just got the 20% warning when I got the screen cap!

    Yeah but my 3G is one year + a month old with a lot of usage. But that's something to! Especially with everything on.

    Well, as the poster above stated, it all depends on what you're doing with the iPhone.

    See this link:

    iPhone 3Gs
    Talk Time - 3G 5 hours / EDGE 12 hours
    Internet - 3G 5 hours / WiFi 9 hours
    Video - 10 hours
    Audio - 30 hours
    Standby Time - 300 hours

    iPhone 3G
    Talk Time - 3G 5 hours / EDGE 10 hours
    Internet - 3G 5 hours / WiFi 6 hours
    Video - 7 hours
    Audio - 24 hours
    Standby Time - 300 hours

    Depending on how much you do "audio," i.e., iPod, versus the fraction of use your on the internet, you can get long life. I get 5 hours on EDGE or 3G and 6 or so hours on wifi, pretty much the rated hours.

    Before I restored, I was lucky to get 6 hours usage with one day standby. It was mostly iPod usage back then.
