I LOVE the phone, but while I've always had pretty good service with AT&T here in Milwaukee, WI I am finding signal issues at my office with the iPhone4.
I'm gonna wait a few days to see if a magical update fixes it, but otherwise it's going back. I will miss the amazing display, but it does me no good if I can't get 3G connectivity. (I'd rather not have a smart phone if I am stuck using Edge!)

I love the phone, but I hate the crappy battery life... I can't get through a day without having to charge the phone... How are some people getting 2 full days out of a single charge? Do they use it at all or leave it in standby all the time?
I'm not hating, just really upset, frustrated and disappointed in my experience so far... what good is this thing if I can't use it - no matter how beautiful the screen is...

I am for some things - I am using my iPhone as a work pager as well as a personal device, so I am using an app called MailTones that pushes alerts for one specific email address. The point is to make sure the alert for that email account is loud and annoying.
I am somewhat confused - is push an on or off thing or is it configurable for different apps (like email, facebook, twitter, etc)?
I have turned push mail off, the brightness level is less than 50% (which is a shame considering the beautiful screen that is now pretty dark), Osfoora for twitter is set to update manually, and I am already down to 97% after only 30 minutes... something is not right.

I love the iPhone 4, I jumped ship to my 3GS (RIP) lol back in Dec when I left BB land, but the improvements in battery life, the display, and the camera alone make it such a better smartphone, you had in camera flash, hd video recording/editing, and the front facing camera.... WOW
this thing is truly amazing

Are you leaving any apps in the background that aren't iOS4 tested and approved? Because if they aren't iOS4 tested then they likely aren't using the API's to suspend using resources.

But yeah, it's a big deal to people moving to AT&T to get the iPhone4... but as long as you already have an unlimited data plan for any smart phone with AT&T, you can keep it... And it would have been an issue if I wasn't grandfathered in.

I am now at 10 hours 2 minutes standby and 3 hours 31 minutes usage... and am at 62% - which is far better than I've seen.
It would just bug the heck out of me to have this great piece of technology and not be able to use it because of battery life.
Thanks for the pointers and the confirmation that something wasn't right... still may be looking to exchange it if it doesn't improve...

I love mine. Just now it's gone a bit wacky with trying to reply. I got it this morning and the display is fantastic. Haven't had it long enough to know about battery life. I was surprised that I couldn't really notice a size difference until I put it in my pocket then I could really tell
I can't wait until the white ones come out. This 16GB one will become house phone and I'll get a 32.

Ok, this is not perfect, but it is MUCH better... I got through the day and still have 35% battery left... some phone calls, some texting, played some games, twitter, facebook and email... the battery life is no where near what I was used to with my BB 9700, but the iPhone4 is so much cooler, and the screen is drop-dead-gorgeous. I am thinking that I can live with this.

I'll report back later with all of my opinions, but just want to chime in quickly that I don't like the way it feels in my hand. I know it's thinner than the 3GS, but it doesn't really feel any thinner and the square/sharp edges are less comfortable to hold, IMO. I had been carrying my 3GS around naked, but I'll probably buy a bumper case for this (to address any signal issues also) and suspect that it will feel more comfortable to hold that way.
Other than that, my opinions are positive and I'll share more later. The display and improved camera are great.
