Hi Folks,
Good morning!..I am a new member and joined this forum recently since i have switched my phone from a Nokia 6300 to Iphone 3GS (16GB). I should say that this forum is really impressive, coz i was watching/reading this to get a feel for the place.....I am writing to enquire if anybody can advise me on my new I Phone 3GS. I am on O2 network in Dublin, Ireland.
Its a month old phone and i can see that i have to charge my phone almost every 30 hours or so.....i am giving the statistics of the phone for your reference....
Wi-Fi Off
3G Off, Working on Edge
Fetch Off
Brightness Auto
Lifetime - 2 Hrs and 33 Minutes
Current time 2 hrs and 33 minutes
Cellular Data 1.7 MB send and 2.3 MB received.
Usage Normally i get about 33 minutes to 35 minutes maximum before next recharge.
I am really puzzled, is this quite normal with Iphone 3GS....please advise....
QUOTE Thanks

I have the exact phone. My battery life was really bad in the beginning too. I just let it completely die a few times in a row now I can go maybe 3-4 days on stand by and get around 4-5 hours talk time along with ipod and internet usage thrown in

maybe it will help if you let it die a few times.
