Mobile Me, Exchange, Yahoo Mail = Push
Location Services = On
BT = on (using BT stereo for about 1:30hrs during morning commute)
Coverage = strong coverage except for the 20-30mins or so in the NYC subway
I would get to work at around 9'ish and be at 82 percent with heavy usage. At around lunch (12-12:30) I am around 50 percent.
If I don't charge at my PC at work, I'll just BARELY make it home with a charge. I usually get home around 7PM.

I usually wake up in the morning around 7:45 and play with my phone until 8:30 or 9, checking emails, texts, facebook, playing godfinger, doing some light web browsing maybe looking at a few gifs etc. all on my home wifi. During this time, my battery usually drops down to 85-75% and I put it back on the charger when I get in the shower and eat breakfast, just because I know it wont last through the day otherwise. I get done breakfast at probably like 10 or so and pull my phone off the charger, it's at 100%, and I power it on and off just to have a fresh slate, make sure no apps are running that I dont know about, whatever.
Usually by the time I leave the house at around 11, maybe later or sooner depending on the day, I'm down to 95% just from standby, and I turn wifi off before I leave the house. I plug my iphone into the cassette adapter in the car, and head out to work. Just like a 10 minute drive. I play with my phone lightly through the day. Texting, maybe a couple phone calls, some very light gaming and facebooking on my lunch break, and by the time I get out of work around 6, I've usually dropped down to about 40% or less.
Then I usually run some errands and such before I go home, hang out at someones house or something. My usage during this time, until about 8, is slightly increased. Mostly phone calls and texting. Maybe a little facebook. Maybe I'll whip out the ocarina app to play the song of time to impress the ladies. But by the time I get in bed at like 9:30 - 10:00, My phone is about to die. I keep forgetting to check usage, but I remember it being incredibly low compared to some other people's numbers, which makes me believe I'm doing something wrong here.

Your story definitely sounds different from mine. I never turn off WiFi - and am frequently out of any WiFi range, so I know it's searching. I also have a bajillion push notifications on, and they go off constantly.

point is, your battery usage is "normal" for you. It is highly unlikely your battery is faulty if you dont get the amazing performance of others.
i had the 3gs but returned it and went back to my blackberry because the battery sucked. I am now using the 4 for almost a month and very pleased with battery life.

What am I doing wrong? Are there settings I need to adjust because mine doesn't last half the day with moderate to heavy usage. My usage doesn't compare to others that are in this forum who are getting a full 24 hours in one full charge. Please help...I'm a noob.

Fully charged the phone the day I bought it. Proceeded to play with the device and managed to go through a few days without the need to plug in to recharge. Granted this is mainly standby time, but it is impressive nonetheless. (And no I did not PS the photo, I am not BP and have no monetary interest in promoting a fake photo).
