    If it's not actively pulling data, it's not killing battery, instead it may be just taking up memory, and killing the app will increase that instead.

    I can never go that long on a single charge. But then again, I am probably starting my commute to work well before you take the iPhone off the charger.

    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.

    2:38 hours of usage today with 8 hours of stand by and 75% battery left. I've made several calls, texting, email, light web browsing and listening to iPod. Not bad at all. Way better than 3GS.

    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.

    Don't be fooled by his usage....its probably a TON of ipod music.....If he were a power internet user with multiple push exchange accounts, lots of web, bluetooth always on, wifi always on, notifications on, etc. it would look a lot different.....

    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.

    Most users are getting 8 or 9 hours, but some have said that their battery life increased after charge cycles to that amount, but it started at 5 or 6 hours of moderate-heavy usage.

    Push has never really effected my battery life on the 3GS and I'm new to the iPhone 4 but I don't see it effecting my battery life now either.

    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).
