    Ok I don't get it my Battery Sucks, Ok I keep my Brightness at around 10-15 Percent. I was on Wifi a lot today, maybe 3 of those hours was on wifi surfing the net listening to some music, but damn Why 4 hours? I mean I expect atleast 6 hours of heavy usage. What do you guys think? I see a lot of People posting 8+ hours and saying they are using it a lot, What do you all think about my battery?

    Btw have 10 hours of standby

    That seems much worse than normal. I'm getting three days now with moderate use and at least two days with heavy use.

    man don't tell me that....argh...actually the last couple of days I been checking and after like 6 hours of usage and 24 hours of standby my phone will die...and it was moderate use...wtf...are you talking about usage time or standby time? also without having it plugged in?

    I'm gonna call Apple tomorrow, I really want my iPhone repaired rather then replaced.

    I'm at 4 hours usage mostly wifi web browsing and my iPhone is about to die. I called Apple support about an hour ago and they are overnighting me a loaner iPhone for use while I send mine back to them for repair. I was pretty impressed. We'll see how it turns out.

    no. He took my credit card info to charge $1 to be reimbursed upon return of the loaner. Very quick and painless process. You should definitely call!

    Fred, I just exchanged my iPhone on Saturday and got a brand new 7 series. I had 3 days of standby, 7 hours usage and then my 20% came on. That's all after the first initial charge. I used 3 hours phone, 2 hours watching videos, 1 hour writing emails, text, checking mail, and 1 hour of safari browsing.
