I just got a Refurbished iPhone 3G White 16GB from Apple last Saturday (friend gave me her iphone 3g and she got the 3gs, she had a crack so i got it replaced). I've been using it since and since I'm a NEW iPhone 3G user, I'm a little concerned and curious on the battery life. For me it just seems like it drains 1% every 5 minutes or less. I have 3G off, location services off, brightness well under 40%, Push is off, bluetooth off, and fetch is set to manually. My current Usage as of right now is: Time since last full charge Usage: 2 Hours, 3 Minutes Standby: 9 Hours, 1 minute Battery is currently at 41%. I don't use the "iPod" as I dont listen to much music, haven't watched any movies yet, and the only thing I do is check email, and browse the web for probably 5 minutes at a time. I haven't even been using it for calls yet since I just got it and my Lifetime Call Time is just 2 Hours, 34 Minutes. I'm curious to see if this is "normal" battery life or what. I find it really annoying that I have to turn everything off just to have "decent" battery life. If anyone can please fill me in if this is normal or what I would greatly appreciate it. Also, some tips would be helpful to if there is anyway I could possibly "test" my battery life, maybe?
