Recently my battery life has not been holding up. I charged my phone this morning at about 7am. Today I used it to check email a couple times, surf the web for about 15 minutes, and to talk to my girlfriend for about 45 minutes total. It is now almost midnight and my phone is 2/5th's full on battery. I've had to charge it daily recently....something I've been doing wrong or is my battery defective?

thats pretty good. 7-12 is 17 hours. Im not good at gauging that though because im usually ON safari constantly. You can try turning things off like wifi and lower brightness.

I guess the "250" hours of standby time listed by Apple is throwing me off since like 15.5 of those hours it was on standby

My battery life is great. I put it to the real test yesterday being out of town. I hammered the phone on voice calls and listening to music while working in one of our branches server rooms. Then on the long drive home from Houston, I made at least a couple of more hours worth of calls. Didn't use wifi all day but when I got home my battery was still over half full.

Coming from other pda smartphone devices I was very pleased.

Yeah I mean I've been hearing about other peoples great battery life and my phone just doesn't have it. I mean it's good enough to last for the day, but otherwise forget it
