    A longer lasting (more mAh) battery I think is a critical step Apple needs to take towards keeping customers happy.

    I know I'd buy an iPhone with a bigger battery even if that was the only difference between it and my 3G S.

    8GB 2G - Firmware 2.2.1 PWN'D
    8GB 3G - Firmware 3.0 PWN'D

    If your battery is depleting as fast as a lot of you are mentioning then you should attempt to fix it. Try restoring it to the latest software 3.0.1, Set the phone up as new, and jailbreak again using the 3.0 firmware in Redsn0w. The cause of most battery issues are from setting the phone up from a backup after a restore.

    The battery on my personal 3G[s] lasts me around 30-36 hours, and the 3G that I use strictly as a work phone has lasted me 3 days since its last full charge and is sitting at 28% right now.

    I believe most people complaining about battery issues are the ones who have not attempted to find a solution, yet...

    I will take my 600Mhz processor and 256MB RAM over more power any day of the week! I'd rather charge my phone more often than be stuck with that POS iPhone 3G. Additionally more power means a BIGGER battery which would in turn cause complaints about the phone being too bulky (like the T-Mobile G1). You can't please everyone... and those that are pissy need to figure out their priority... you can't have a battery that lasts 3 days AND a high performance chip inside. One or the other my friends.

    Remember that al lot of battery issues in any iPhone running 3.0 will be much better in 3.1. 3.1 will optimize all the new features in 3.0 for the best use of battery and probably the bloody wifi.

    Seriously, 30-36 hours? Are you being sarcastic? Either you have a special iPhone that no other person in the world has, you never use the thing or you are just point blank lying.

    I have my phone tucked in a mophie juice pack air all day. if i take it out from charge at 8am the whole thing including the juice pack air will be practically dead by about 10pm, and thats without playing any battery strenuous stuff like tomtom or any game.

    What i want is the option to have a fat *** iPhone with a battery about 4 times the size so i can happily use the thing all day without having to worry about whether the battery will run out before i next get to a charger.

    As soon as the iPod touch 3G comes out, if not sooner. And since the conference at which they will announce the new iPod is the 9th (in about a week) I would say in a month or less.

    Thanks buddy, people who know me on here know that I speak only the truth. I am not being sarcastic at all. After removing all the unnecessary daemons and many other files and having the brightness set very low, I have increased battery life substantially. No Juice pack, no lies. I am on my phone all day long.

    But thanks again reeko

    I hate having such a crappy battery life also . But maybe you need to turn off alot of different services such as Bluetooth , WIFI ,SSH and PUSH NOTIFICATIONS until you need them .
