    I just pulled out my 3GS which I charged overnight, turned on about 6:30am and which I used to send 1 text this morning, nothing else. Its now about 10:30am and its already down to 90%. When I put it in sleep mode, I didnt press the Home button and when I opened it again, it went directly to the text app. Heres my question: because I didnt send it to the home screen after texting, was the texting app running the entire time, thus draining the battery?

    No. The text app only runs when there are texts coming in or being sent.

    I just checked the power status on my phone and in the past five hours it's only dropped another 3%. So in the first four hours it dropped 10% and 3% in the five hours following that. Very strange, there must've been something draining it.

    all in all, 13% battery drain in 9 hours is fan-flippin'-tastic!! compared to the complaints i read on numerous other threads about battery life.

    6:30am - 10:30am = 10% drain
    10:30am - 3:30pm = 3% drain

    is this a true reflection of your battery life? or am i missing something here? i'd say this isn't bad.
