    The batt life on my iPhone4 is horrific. I could easily get a full day out of my BlackBerry but my IP4 is dead by 3pm with moderate usage. I love the features of my IP4, but the battery life is really a big let down.

    Sounds like a defective battery. I have 4 iPhone 4s and 2 have been replaced with refurbs and all make it easily through a day...if not squeaking by a second day.

    If I do nothing with it, it will last all day with no problem. If I make some calls, text, use email, etc...down to 30% by 3pm. Guess I'll check in with the Genius Bar the next time I'm near an Apple Store

    Are you jailbroken? If so check and see what's installed. SSH killed my battery before I removed it.

    I've been playing NBA Jam for an hour now, a few really short calls, plenty of emails and text messages and maybe 45 minutes of web browsing. It has been off the charger for 13 hours and I'm at 46% remaining. The biggest drain has been NBA Jam.

    My wife has had what I would consider minimal usge and hers has been off the charger for 14 hours and she is at 83%.

    I take my phone off the charger in the morning....listen to a podcast for my 30 minute drive to work and then check FB and text message a but throughout the day. Another 30 minute podcast for the drive home. 8 hours later I am usually at 95-98%.

    I've had my replacement for about a week now, and the battery is starting to get a little better. I usually see a quick drop in from 100-95 than it settles in for the day.

    I have turned off the precentage. I notice, I get the same results on my battery (at least a day of usage). I hate micromanging my battery per percenage. I look at my usage. I can get usually 6 hours of usage (not standby time) out of my phone. I'm happy with that.
