Aside from the tiny green meter at the top of the phone, how can I find out how much battery life is remaining?

Low battery alerts start when you get down to 20% power, right? That's okay, but I'd prefer a better battery monitoring utility.

Where did you get this 20% number? I can't find that anywhere. Tonight, I thought I was down to what looked like 10% or 15% battery on the little meter. When I plugged it in for a charge, it looked like 40% on the big meter. How in the world do I know how much I can really go? This is driving me nuts!

Whats really cool, is if you go into the settings, and go to the "Usage" tab, it tells you how long you have used the phone since your last full charge. It also keeps track of your standby time.

This could prove to be helpful in figuring out if your battery is losing capacity.

yes I don't think there is any way to view a percentage. I wouldn't worry though. If you watch the little battery icon you can practicalyy watch it go down to zero. :) by the way ... I'm posting from my iPhone. Woot!
