    Default iPhone 3GS Battery Decreasing, Rapidly?
    Hey there, i have just bought my first iphone which happens to be an iphone 3gs. I know this has been discussed before but ended with no solid answers. As soon as i recieved my iphone i went ahead and jailbroke with blackra1n Rc3 and was successfull, although its teathered which is fine. Now i fully charged my phone last night (round 6pm) and was using it after, few games 3G off, edge on, location off, push off and so on.

    Been on all night made a few quick phone calls about 10:30am the next morn and its dead by 11am (now).

    Could you tell me your usage that you get out of it and some tips and if this is normal.

    Jailbroken Apps/Suff

    Winterboard (although not using)
    5 icon dock
    SBSettings (i have heard this could be the culprit)
    ringtone app
    cydia
    blackrain

    maybe a few more but cannot think off the top of my head.

    Cheers in advance for this, i just chucked out 450+ for my new 16gb white and dont want it to go down the pan.

    The chance is that the battery life is coming to an end - no panic though. Batteries for 3G/3GS are cheap.
    I bought this one - http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=260570400080 $4.39 delivered. Works like a charm and has 35% higher capacity than the original.
