Question about reminders
When you set up a location based reminder, what happens if you leave and come back? Does it go off each time? For instance, I go to the store and have a reminder set up to buy milk. But I still forget to buy milk. If I don't clear the reminder will it remind me to buy milk again the next time I'm at the store?

Dunno if it's an issue on your 3GS, but my reminders work fine. Create a reminder and press DONE. Open the reminder and press Remind Me. In there you can choose to be reminded at a specific date/time or when leaving/arriving at a location.
I cannot answer the OP question as I haven't tested it.

So yesterday I set a location-based reminder. I live about a half mile from work. Well, it didn't go off until I got home.
Either way, when I did it, I hardly used my phone during the day. At about 3:30 p.m., I checked my phone and my battery was down to 69%. This is pretty unusual, since typically I'm around 90-80% in similar usage conditions.
I deleted the reminder, and then turned off location services for the reminders app. My battery life seems to be back to normal, and at 3:30 today I'm at 90%. So, is it location services in general that kills the battery life, or is it simply having a location-based reminder?
I wonder, if you set a location based reminder, does your GPS stay on constantly, causing your battery to drain as if you were in the maps app?
