    My phone is 8 months old and my battery seems to run out too quick.
    Is 5hrs with maybe 1 or 2 of talk time ok?

    Not OK at all, unless you are using it nonstop for internet and videos the whole 5 hours, and even then that's not fantastic.

    This happen to be b/c something got screwed up with the Mail app always got hung up or something.

    Things to try in order of easy to hard:
    1) Just reboot the phone. Turn it off and back.
    2) Try a forced reboot by holding home and lock button.
    3) Do a restore using a backup
    4) Delete your mail settings and enter them again
    5) Do a restore as new iPhone (you will lose all settings, but this should fix it for sure if the above don't)

    Good Luck!

    With a little bit of everything - phone, internet, texting, etc... I've gotten around 7 hours of usage and 24 hours of standby. (With 3G, location, and bluetooth enabled)

    *I am currently on the 3.0 software.

    It also helps to (about once a month) run the battery all the way dead and then fully charge it.

    It may be time for a new battery. You can get it replaced at any authorized Apple Store.
