    At home where I have my iPhone linked to my ISP my iPhone runs great. I was at a condo in Florida last week where it was linked to another ISP and it worked great. In my office which has the same ISP as my home, I notice that the iPhone is really hot most of the time, and the battery is run down by noon.

    I have to bring my charger to the office or it will run down by the end of the day. WHY???? And how can I correct it.

    Mine did something similar was fully charged around 7:30am and by about 10:45 it was down to 1/4 battery left. I only made one 5min phone call, and had location services and bluetooth off but Wifi on. I have not had an issue with the battery until now and it was very hot on the back and the glass face. It seems to be doing ok today (so far) but I am going to go by the Apple Store tomorrow afternoon and let them check it out. I would hate to have a buring battery in my pocket. :)

    The only time my iPhone gets hot is when I'm using the data services extensively. Netshare really heats it up.

    I just checked my iPhone, which has been sitting in my pocket all morning and it is down to 20% power. Strange.
    I haven't used it at all this morning.
