How has the iPhone battery performed in one day while just using it for a few calls, some txts and maybe some browsing but not a whole lot? I am really curious.

Typically I can get through a day without charging and using a combination of 3G and Wi-Fi, moderate browsing and music listening, light phone usage and heavy gaming and other app usage.Portable DAP: iPod nano 4G 8GB (green)

If I am using my 3G a lot (Pandora or FStream) and have the screen on a lot then typically I can use my phone for about a half a day (8-10 Hours). But to be fair, I am on the phone quite a lot as it is a business line. With the 3G off, using more WIFI I can generally get through a whole day (16-20 hours).
Like right now, I have had my screen on all morning , using Pandora over the 3G network (since about 8am), and I have about 35% battery left.masakatsu agatsu

Dang thats some good news right there. I am going to be using WiFi when I can because I won't be on 3G all the time.

Before Apple advised me to do this I was needing to charge my phone every day as it was losing about 50% battery but now I am charging properly once a week.
Multitasking also uses power so if you close apps you aren't using this will help.

I would say I use my phone similarly to what your describing, some calls during the day, texting, some light internet browsing, and I have never had any issues with getting up at 7am and plugging it back in at 10pm that night, usually still has 30-50% life left, and I don't monitor "open" applications either.
EDIT: Just realized this is a REALLY old post, haha

I usually charge mine every 36 hours. That's because I talk on EDGE, I turn off my 3G and only browse on 3G when needed, and I always use Wi-Fi. I play some games, texts, make some calls, browse the internet to.
