    I don't have much expirience with 1.0.2 FW since i've bought my iPhone off hands with 1.1.1 ... And by using it i think my battery dies fast. Ok after fully chrging it my batter lasts exactly for 4.5 hours when i just surf the internet, nothing else, WiFi off. And the thing is, i keep my brightness on the lower lowest. Is that a normal time for battery just using internet? I did call AppleCare and they said 4.5 hrs is normal... Just wondered how much any of you getting out of ur battery. 95% using internet.

    I have the 1.0.2 firmware. The battery really doesn't last that long for me, about 4.5 hours when surfing the net or playing games. When I just use the phone for calls, I can go almost 2 days without having to charge it.
    bluetooth turned off
    wifi on
    I have screwed up enough Motorola V series phones
    I guess I will give the ol' iphone a try

    I was wondering the same thing after I updated to FW 1.1.1, but I think the battery life is draining faster because i'm using my phone more often due to all the great 3rd party apps that I have installed..cheers

    I keep mine bright. Not max, but maybe 80%. Battery life is not as good, but heck, I don't mind charging it. I don't use the actual telephone feature all that much, since I have a Verizon phone also. I use the iPhone for email and web while out of my home/office.

    I leave my brightness at auto. Let the iPhone do it all. I haven't noticed any difference. You being sure to turn off SSH when not needed?

    Download the Services.app through installer. You can turn off SSH in that.

    IMO, I think its better to let it drained all the way down and charge. As you know, Apple says battery is only good for, I fogot the exact number, 300 charges (?) before it begins to degrade (as batteries of other cell phones do). I think in general and IMO, that's just how you should treat all batteries.

    BUT...

    Some other battery experts (?) says its the number of cycles and not number of charges. Cycle meaning, from 0% to 100%, that's one cycle.
    And if you charge at 50% to 100%, that's only half a cycle. SO if your battery is good for 300 cycles before it begin to degrades, it doesn't really matter how and when you charge your battery.

    Going back to 1.1.1, somehow I think its draining the battery faster and I have some services turn off when I don't need it.
