    Default 3gs (3.0.1) battery -- EDGE drains fast and misreads?
    I've had my 3gs for over a month now and I'm on Tmobile so I use EDGE. The battery life was really great (5hrs usage/2 days idle still 20%) but lately it's been getting worse. Almost as if I was connected to 3g but I'm not. Currently I'm only at 3hrs usage/20hrs. idle) and my batter is already at %40. Is there something wrong here? Any other TMobile EDGE people getting the same battery life?

    Also, sometimes I love my phone and put it away for a while and when I unlock it the battery has magically recharged. For example, I was at work and my battery read 32%, then 10 minutes later it read 50%. About 30 min later I look at it again and read 28%. What the hell happened? Is this linked to my battery suddenly draining quickly?

    All help is appreciated in advance! Thanks!

    try calibrating the battery, that helped me when I suffered the same issue (the jumping battery meter, not the terrible battery life). drain the batteryuntil the iphone shuts off, then charge it to 100%. do this 2-3 times, maybe it helps
