    I do seem to have a longer battery life. Still NOTHING compared to my Nokia I had last year. It would go a good 4 days without a charge. Anyway there is a longer battery life. I'm not sure if its because I haven't jailbroken it yet so I don't have biteSMS and not constantly forwarding texts to my friends making fun of them because I still have electricity and they don't like I did all through Gustav lol.

    Mine has improved with edge enabled I wouldn't go more then half a day.. 3G use to be even shorter now with 3G enabled I am getting at least 3-4 hours of talk and at least 30 megs of usage and I still have almost half my battery left to go in the evening.. my usage has increased and a lot more battery is left but is still nothing compared to the original iPhone.

    I've been doing my battery exercises with my wi-fi on and if i turn of my wi-fi i could go probably go about 2 days without charging. The other day i turned it off when it said i had 20% left and it was about midday and lasted until some time in the morning. oh and im not alway connected to wi-fi but its still on.
