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. It?s now about 10:30am and it?s already down to 90%. When I put it in sleep mode, I didn?t press the Home button and when I opened it again, it went directly to the text app. Here?s my question: because I didn?t send it to the home screen after texting, was the texting app running the entire time, thus draining the battery? :confused::confused::confused::confused:

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.
