    One big concern for me is the battery. Are you having a good experience with this?

    First days battery use is never a really good showing... after about a week the battery settles down and the honeymoon effect dies (constantly touching your phone, updatingm downloading, going thru all the settings etc)

    I set up my phone at noon yesterday and did not put it down till 10:30pm last night. I was down to 54% and had been playing around on it the whole time. That's pretty good so far.

    Can you guys tell me how to change the setting so it shows the percentage at the top instead of just the battery indicator??? (I'm pretty sure I remember my bf's AT&T iPhone doing this....) I messed with it a little bit last night and couldn't easily find how to do it.....

    It's under Settings. :o

    To make the %age indicator show up just alongside and to the left of the standard battery indicator just go to Settings > General > Usage and toggle the Battery Percentage setting to On.

    The battery life is unbelievable in my opinion coming from a droid x that sucked all my battery life away by mid afternoon. I used this very heavily and it wasn't fully charged yesterday and made it 9 hours with still 35% remaining. I am extremely

    Ok, I feel better :o. Glad you didn't say it was sitting on the rim of the toilet. Either way I am still impressed.

    usage 2 hours, 10 minutes
    standby 3 hours, 55 minutes
    Battery level = 77%

    Thoughts? This seems poor to me but I am coming from a BB Bold. I have done all the battery life management adjustments and have optimized my iPhone to the fullest extent that I can and still have it operate in the manner I need.

    I used mine all day yesterday and at 8pm I still had 43% percent left. I even tried to run the battery down by streaming a movie through netflix and it only dropped 7% (about an hour of streaming over 3G). Battery life is much better than my 3GS that I had. On a normal day (for me) I would be at 40-50% by 3pm and almost dead by the time I went to bed.

    I guess I was spoiled by years of Blackberry's. battery lated forever on those things.

    Yesterday was my first full day out. I unplugged at 7am, played Words With Friends all day, about 5 or 6 phone calls, Twitter, Facebook, Beluga...all day. Browsed the forums for a few..email set to Push. At 9pm when I was about to put it on the charger, I was down to 38%. Not bad for me...with my Droid2, I would have already charged again by 5pm.

    Today is not so good though, but I haven't put it down since I woke up this morning. It's been off of the charger since 6:23am and I've used it nonstop for 3 of those 4 hours...down to 44%. Played Fruit Ninja, took a ton of pics, downloaded a ton of apps, Twitter, etc. I changed up some settings, turned off some notifications for apps.
