    Ok, I am sure there have been a million threads about this topic already, and I know I will be flamed for it. However, I will take the chance.

    I am coming from a blackberry bold to the iphone 3gs. I have took my phone off the charger at 9 AM, it is 6PM, and the battery is almost dead. With my blackberry, I could go 2 days of heavy usage and it was fine. Mind you, i set my bold on EDGE.

    My question is, how much of a difference does 3g -> edge make on the iphone? What kind of battery life should I expect to get with this device?
