    From what I've read and seen, improved battery life isn't a advertised feature but I'm still wondering if Apple might have made 3.0 more effecient in terms of cellular use etc.

    Looking forward to installing 3.0 on my 3G to see if 3.0 does improve battery life.

    *Fingers crossed*

    I was wondering about this too. Although I have read several posts of people using the GM 3.0 on their 3G's and they say the battery life is much improved! Although there are others that say their battery life drains faster. Only time will tell.

    Ever since I enabled push notifications, my battery is draining much quicker than with push notifications turned off. My girlfriend is having the same problem.

    So, maybe it does improve battery life but not with push notifications turned on.

    I don't really care about the battery life because mine is pretty good as we speak but I hope they improved the drop calls.. Hopefully they will get it right one day...

    How do you turn push on and off in 3.0? I have it, but I'm not sure where the setting is.

    Hmm
    Ok i just looked into how to enable/disable push, and I found screenshots that show there should be a "Notifications" button under the "Carrier" button in the settings, but mine doesn't have that there. I guess push is still coming a little later on?

    For Applications (Notifications) see Setting Page / Notifications (just uner Wi-Fi at the top). Must have applications that use it to see it.

    For Mail, see Settings Page / Mail......

    If anything, expect the battery life to be worse.

    At any rate, I have heard different people say different things about battery life.

    Some good, some bad.

    Seems like it is random.
