Default Iphone 4 battery life
Is anyone out there having any issues with battery life on their 4?

I am a fairly heavy user and I have to keep a charger on my desk at the office because i can't make it through an entire day.

What is everyone elses experience?

Had one for a bit, Couldnt handle At&T, Have u tried downloading a APP that monitors App usage that may be running in the background?

I have the intercept now and i had to download a Advanced Task manager to close factory programs that was eating my battery.

The 3G S battery life drove me crazy. For the first month of two it was great. After that, if I didn't charge it overnight, it would be dead.
The 4 I've had no problem with though. I text, talked on the phone, use apps and I wouldn't have to charge it for 2-3days, seriously. It's the best phone I've ever had. But I have really tried to take care of this one unlike my other phones.

The battery life on my 3GS is horrible unless you keep the background apps cleared off of the Task Manager. Its pretty easy but sometimes difficult to remember to do but is well worth it.

Double tap the home button (will bring up the task manager), then hold down on the apps and a (-) negative sign will appear then you can close out all the apps running in the background.

If those are closed out i get about 10 hours out of my iPhone and I constantly am using it for something, so maybe clearing stuff from the task bar will help.

Thanks for that information. I will try that and see what kind of results I get.
