    iPhone 4G has a much larger battery hence why it would take longer to charge. Simple.

    I see no battery difference on my ATT iPhone 4 versus my Verizon iPhone 4. And if you check the apple store specs on each of the phones, it's states they are the same battery life.

    Thanks for all your responses (except one) guys! As it turns out I have a defective phone and Apple is sending me a new one, hopefully the new one works!

    I let mine drain until it turned off the other night and then fully recharged it. Seems to have made a big difference! I still had 59% at 10pm the next day.

    I'm having a battery problem with my verizon iPhone. Its on 4.2.6 and is jailbroken with green pois0n RC6, If i leave my phone on at night and when I wake up it about 9 hours later it drains a good 30-35% is this normal?

    No it is not. Find out what app is killing your battery. Sbsettings is a quick way to close apps, try it. Hope this helps.

    I didn't think so, right now I have like no jailbreak stuff installed cause I recently restored the phone but I'll make sure everything is closed tonight.

    Yeah I rebooted before I left it on. Right now i have no service on it so i only use wifi but it's a verizon iphone so it always seems to be connected to the network even though its not activated, but that should not be the problem. I also made sure insomnia is off and I have no winterboard videos or vwallpapers on.

    If your using wifi I would disable data and 3G, can't hurt. My jb Verizon 4g will only loss about 3 percent overnight...good luck!

    Thanks for your help, I put my phone in airplane mode and the percentage didn't even go down 1%! Wonder why that would be the problem though?

    Without a data plan it may be trying to conect to 3G that you do not subscribe to... That would be my guess, try turning data and 3g off in sbsettings. Sounds like your making progress!

    If you're JB try an app called switcherplus. You press the home button 3 times and u can close all apps running in the background. Seems to help my battery life substantially.
