I guess the real question is, how much time are people getting out of there battery versus how much more time are you looking to gain by turning off things like iMessage and the app store? To me, it doesn't make any sense if you in theory are gaining lets say an hour more overall. Unless your talking gains of half a day or more then it's not worth it. Turning any feature of the phone off is a modest gain at best not substantial.
If you use your phone all day and by time you get home it's at 20% or less, is that a bad thing? Or are people saying there phone is completely dead mid day and won't make it until the end.
We all use our phones differently therefore, our perspective's on good and poor battery life will be different. When I see posts like this seeking to gain more juice from the battery I have to ask just how much more and what are you getting now?

I think that it doesn't matter if it is at 20% or dead when you get home. The people with issues are getting even close to what was advertised. On Apple.com it still shows:
Talk time: Up to 8 hours on 3G, up to 14 hours on 2G (GSM)
Standby time: Up to 200 hours
Internet use: Up to 6 hours on 3G, up to 9 hours on Wi-Fi
Video playback: Up to 10 hours
Audio playback: Up to 40 hours
No way anyone is getting anywhere near this kind of time out of it.

I don't want to have to turn off the all settings that make it a great phone. I can stil get through the day without need to charge, so I'm not complaining. I do need to charge over night every day, but who cares? It's a great phone and I don't want to turn off all the features that make it great just to get some more juice out of it.
