how long will the battery last when the ipod is on and not in use
Yeah me too, but I have read many posts on other forums from members that are convinced that it is true. If I have to lay odds, I would say the rumor has about a 25% chance of being true.I thought that was just a Pre announcement rumor from Digg or engadget
That was from that Kevin Rose drunk rant about the iPhone on his showHmm now that I think about it the rumor never was shut down so its still fair game.

- Extremely small form factor
- Two battery design (with single charger) -- one for playing music, the other for phone functions
- Flash memory: 4GB for $249, 8GB for $449
- "Slide-out keyboard"
- Possibly touchscreen
- Likely launch with a 'singular GSM carrier' with CDMA and other GSM to follow
That was the first time I heard the 2 battery rumor, but not the last. Here is an article that also claims the iPhone has two batteries.That was from that Kevin Rose drunk rant about the iPhone on his show
A little recap of all his "inside info"

Such is the remarkable efficiency of the stunning widescreen display, Xscale ARM (RISC) CPU, onboard memory, Flash storage and surprisingly large dual batteries which dominate the interior space of the iPhone enclosure.
I got my iPhone last night and used it quite a lot today to see how the battery would hold up. I used the web browser with mostly wifi for an hour and a half easily. Listened to the ipod for about 45 mins, watched a couple youtube videos here and there and talked on the phone for about 45 mins.i am contemplating buying the iPhone. lets say in a full recharge if i use the iPhone to browse the web a little, maybe 15 min or so. make a few calls, maybe 15 or so and send a few texts, as-well as listening the ipod for maybe an hour. what kind of battery life will i see. will there be any left at the end of the day. people that own iPhones, whats your battery life like?
Is your phone jailbroken, and if so, have you installed anything around the time you noticed the decrease in battery life? A lot of software from Dock to SSH to well... just about anything that stays running on a consistent basis will use up battery life. Also have you recently turned on WiFi where you previously had it turned off? It is constantly sending out a signal looking for a suitable network to attach to.I know there are threads with battery life info dispersed through them. But I thought I would start a thread for people like myself that have developed battery problems.
It may be coincidence, but I have had 2.5 days + standby on my iPhone since May 2007, and after the last update I am luck I get through a whole day without getting the 10% battery warning.
I only make a couple of calls per day and look up an item or two on the internet. Not much ipod or video use lately.
Problem seemed to start after last update.
1) I have tried to let it run out completely and then recharge it.
2) I have everything turned off, wifi.. mail autocheck etc.
