    And every time you use that poxy website you have to remember the stupid code. I dont care for sending but im glad i dont have to use that website anymore. I feel for youwith that one.

    Go to any apple store...they have tons of stock but lonngggggg lines. I will tell you what I did, Go here first: Apple Retail Store - iPhone availability at the Apple Store check the availability! Do all the pre-authorization online at apple.com. Then go to the store. I think you should do it soon....like today!

Frustrates me because I am not JB yet and have only stock apps with all push turned off. If it does not improve I will bring it in.

    That's just what I'll do, thanks!


    Also guys, you think this would mess with the battery for the iPhone? I'd wanna get it because I think I'd use it alot, but not at the expense of ruining the phone.

    So I haven't gotten mine yet, apple says they're going to start using new batteries, anyone have the same problem?

    i haven't had any overheating issues with my 3GS. i did experience my battery draining faster than usual at first, but after some uses and charges, the battery life is back to where it was when i had the 3G

    It's the same situation in all other phones too, send fine but get that stupid text linking me online. I regret texting O2 for settings!! I was in this exact situation a few months ago and after I called O2 11 times, the 11th guy actually understood what I meant and now I can't remember his name!!! So far, I've rang 3 times *sigh*. The people who answer now are just stupid, I could do a much better job!!!

    I personally would stay away from all of those after market batteries, the 3gs battery is pretty good. Wait a little while and see if you actually go through a lot of the battery during the day and it is necessary. Not too mention they are added bulk. I just keep a few extra chargers in places I go a lot, ie. car, office, and never has my battery died.

    I am goiing to try a few suggestions I saw on the apple forum, like a complete restore, maybe a complete battery drain & recharge a few times, as fast as it goes, it won't be hard. I also noticed that it seems to take a LONG time to recharge, how about you?

    I have chargers everywhere, but we are a multiple ipod/iphone house too! We also have Kensington battery backups, won't leave home without one! It has worked flawlessly on all 3 generations.

    you can also turn down the brightness of the screen and turn off the auto-brightness to see if that helps

    Have you guys tried going back to Apple and reporting these problems yet?? I mean I could be wrong but this sounds like a major hardware problem. My 3g[s]'s charge very quickly and battery last a long time, plus it doesnt get hot. I personally just bought a 13" macbook pro last week, I thought the computer was getting too hot and the LCD was yellowish looking, so I went to apple and told them that I dont expect these kind of problems form an apple product and I want a new one right now. They replaced it in 2 seconds. I would try that actually with the phones as well. You can also call apple customer care and ask to speak to a supervisor...I did this also before and now am good friends with the Apple online store manager. Just play the game of, "I am such a loyal apple customer and this is seriously making me doubt the quality of your products." If the phone is new there shouldnt be any problem in the first place. A new phone should hold a charge period

    It's not the iPhone's, I heard it's the chargers.

    I've noticed my battery being bad also. I have most everything off (push, bluetooth, gps, 3g, ect), and I used to be able to stay at 100% with light use for a half hour. Now I can go down to 95% in a half hour just checking email, or doing very little.

    The bad part is that most of the half hour the phone is in standby.

    Already tirned it down, but didn't turn the auto-off. Regardless, it shouldn't be like this in the first place. ALl the touted new battery likfe and it's worse than my 2g or my 3g?

    A simple hard reset will probably fix it.

    i've gone 42 hrs on my 3GS and the battery meter says 42% right now. I have Wifi enabled, PUSH enabled, and it fetches for mail every 30 minutes, with a little usage using apps, and probably 5 or so phone calls lasting no more than 3 minutes each
