Also, check to see if your WiFi is on or off...

Those two are usually the culprits of poor battery life...

Do you use Mobile Me? My 3G's battery drained like crazy after upgrade to 3.0, using Mobile Me/Find My iPhone. I deleted Mobile Me and it is back to normal.

3G, Wifi, Bluetooth, and Location Services are all on - battery life is fine here.

Today my battery was full and within seconds of opening safari it dropped to about 1/3 full. 10 minutes after that I got the 20% indicator. Weird!

Try turning off your phone or rebooting it.

Note I DID NOT say restore.

I've had a few problems with my battery life, it seems to rapidly decrease.

From charging up after about 1 and bit days, i'm now charging it twice a day as my battery is going that quickly;

Overnight, then plugging it in at about 8 o'clock PM

Your posting in the completely wrong section. Use the search function for 3.0 advantages.

i believe what's killing your battery life is the new notifications feature. i turned it off before i went to sleep, and my iPhone wasn't drained until about 11 this morning ( so it lasted 10 hrs on 20% battery)

i have noticed my battery has been dying faster with the 3.0 update also...it doesn't really matter whats on and whats off because all the stuff i had on was on when i had the old update to so i know its the update...i don't think Apple factored in much how the great update would effect the battery life of the 3G and had primary focus on making the battery life with 3.0 update good for the 3GS.....

how do you turn the notifications feature off?
just click on settings and it's right under wifi. you might need an app that uses notifications to see it though, or that's what i have heard. i use textfree unlimited, but i think i read somewhere that ap mobile uses it as well.
