Battery drains too fast
hello everyone, just got my iPhone4 (At&t) three days ago. Loving it but hate the battery life.
One night I charged it to 100% before i went to sleep, put it on airplane mode and woke up the next morning and it was at 85%. How could it lose 15% in 7-8 hours of sleep?
Also, today I only used it to get 3 emails, And i checked twitter maybe 4 times, I went from 100% to 90% in like 45 minutes.
I have read on these forums that the batter will get better with time but I just want to know if anyone can confirm this.
Has the iphone4 had battery problems and also, will apple or at&t be able to find a problem if I bring it in to them? Thanks!
EDIT: also by the way I keep my brightness down to about 20-30 %

That does sound excessive at night especially if you were in airplane mode. Did you have Wi-Fi or Bluetooth on? I know at my house my Wi-Fi signal is not very strong. This drains my battery like crazy b/c it is constantly searching for a stronger signal. The battery does get better over time, especially if you charge to 100% and let it die completely before charging again. I always do this with every smartphone I get the first few charges. Personally I have had much better battery life with my 4 than any previous model.

Also, what you described doesn't sound like a drastic thing to worry about, as long as your battery isn't dropping like 50% during sleep, or in an hour.
I wouldn't worry about it too much if I were you.

Well one thing I've discovered about the iPhone is that Safari takes up a lot of resources. Safari may not seem like an obvious solution but closing all the tabs in Safari can significantly improve battery life. You don't have to quit Safari in the multitasking bar, just close all the tabs you don't need to be open.

wow thanks for all the great quick responses. Last night was much better, it only went down like 2 percent. I let the battery drain all the way down below 10% and then fully charged it. I actually streamed alot today and yet its only at 50% and thats in about 8 hours, prob a full 40 min of streaming lol.
Maybe it does get better with time.
Man I switch from BLACKBERRY. iPhone makes blackberry look like garbage in my opinion lol. the internet just zips along, and now we are getting iOS4.3 next week. So glad to own an iPhone. I do wish I could customize it more but I'm not running the risk of jailbreaking it like I did my TOUCH.
