    soooooo close to the 3 day stand by mark, but I had to make a call and I knew the last 1% wouldn't last for the 20-30mins, lol.

    Wow that's some serious standby time!
    I once got almost 2 days out of it with about 7 hours usage time, but I'm somewhat hesitant to go below 14 %, That's usually when I notice my iPhone screams for juice.

    I was wondering: am I too chicken about probable battery damage? Is it ok to go down to 1% without battery damage?

    This is my longest usage time yet. I think this is awesome considering my 4S is jailbroken.

    Going down to 1% will not hurt the battery. This is what Apple has to say about it; "For proper maintenance of a lithium-based battery, it’s important to keep the electrons in it moving occasionally. Be sure to go through at least one charge cycle per month (charging the battery to 100% and then completely running it down)."

    You will not hurt or damage your battery letting it run down that low--i actually don't like to let it go below 20%, but sometimes i will run it down to 1%--not often tho.

    Thanks for addressing this Rose

    I'm prob one of the few that do not do this anymore. I've heard such mixed things about this-that it helps or it doesnt help - so i've opted not to drain conmpletely anymore once a month. I havent done it since Dec. and since then i have noticed my battery life has improved greatly--i'm able to get more standby & usage time It all depends on what each person decides to do

    Thank you Irish Rose and Pink for your answers. It's true, there's a lot of different opinions on this subject and that's exactly what makes me so insecure. Ah well, I guess I will keep it like I did before: When my iPhone indicates around 20-14%, that it would like to get some juice, I will give it some

    ok, here comes my screenshot. Not my longest standby time so far, but I played quite a bit of games Sunday afternoon. :o

    ...and you still had 15%, unlike the last time, it was closer to 1%. Nicely done.

    Okay Pink, what's your secret?! I can't even post mine because it constantly keeps resetting to blanks. I think it might be time for a visit to the Apple store.

    No, but I do have to reboot a LOT for various issues. That explains it, but makes me feel like a visit is in order anyway.

    no secret actually, I just move along at my pace. As for your usage resetting, like laelipoo said, when you do a reset the batt use & stand by will show dashes till you charge up to 100%. Then It'll start to register again. Sorry to hear your having issues, I hope you get them resolved soon !!
    I go through 5 hours of usage in like 7-10 hours, you must not use your phone much!?
    Yes and no. It really depends on what my day is like. Some days I use my phone for 5 hrs and only get 2 days stand by, while some days I'm only using it for maybe an hour or 2 and then I can stretch my battery to 3 days

    Uh oh.. Woke up at 5:30am to find my phone at 93% after charging all night. Yesterday it was 100% at 5am but when I unplugged it at 7:30am it was at 96%. With no usage this morning or yesterday morning. the only new app I downloaded is the tweetcaster app. No other changes were made. Do you think that's it? I remember seeing complaints about this happening... Better go do a search ?
