    My battery life is very bad. I can use EDGE for about 90 minutes before I am at 20%

    If I am surfing and playing music, iPod crashes after 10 minutes. Safari usually lasts 30 minutes before a crash.

    Maybe I have a defective unit????

    The phone shouldn't be draining power that fast. Take it to an apple store. Bad battery maybe.

    Yup that sounds like a bad battery for sure! I can surf over EDGE for 90 minutes and hardly put a dent in my battery!

    Well I can personally tell you that this is my third iphone. With my first one I would surf the web and play youtube and things to test battery life and i never even made it to 4 hours if i were surfin the web and playing youtube video. So I took it in to the Apple Store they gave me an replacement phone brand new out the box. So again I used it for almost 2 weeks and decided to see how long it would last without needing a charge. Well this phone I just surfed the web non stop for about almost 3 hours battery shows 20%. I said to myself maybe im just one unlucky guy and I went in to the Apple Store again and once again they gave me a brand new phone out the box. So I tried it again and I get just about the same results, if you are gonna surf the web non stop you won't get the 6hours of internet use they tell you about in the specs. I have yet to test the ipod or video player mode but i know youtube will drain your battery quick. I have never seen these results of 2 days before charging like some people claim, I get the most usage out of my phone when it's on standby while im working and by the time my battery dies the usage meter will say like 15 hours standby 4 hours of usage. WTF!!!!!!!!!!!! I would really like to know how long other users battery life last... And I haven't hacked my iphone yet so thats not part of my issue here.
