Thread: 3G S Battery Life

  1. #1
    Default 3G S Battery Life
    My iPhone 3GS has terrible battery life. I got it 5 days ago, and merely checking a couple of sports scores drops the battery down like 5%. I'm completely unjailbroken, and when I say "checking sports scores" I mean going to ESPN for 10 minutes after the phone had been fully charged. The iPhone barely makes it through an entire day of work.
    I have 3G off.
    I have bluetooth off.
    I'm not playing games, music, or video
    It's pathetic.

    drain it till its dead- charge to full and make sure your brightness isnt cranked. other than that- return to apple for a new one. i had 2 3g's and my first 3gs last less than 40 min idle. theres always bad apples

    with 3G on I'd say this is normal. with 3G off it seems a little much.
    do the re-calibration that was mentioned in the last post. but also consider that alot of 3GS (or iphone users in general) suffer bad battery life since 3.0 (me included). I know, it's not what you want to hear, I'm just saying I'm trying to get better battery life for 2 months now, I even got a new 3GS, but it's still pretty bad.

    Hmmm... interesting. A lot of people are complaining about problems with 3.1, but it's been bad for me with 3.0.1 (what it came with). I'll do what jwid said and wait for 3.2...
