The iPhone 4 has the best battery life of any smartphone that I have had so far. I'm getting 7 hours of usage in a little under a 2 day period:
Location Services ON
Push Mail OFF, Fetch hourly ON.
Auto-Brightness ON, and set at 75% My usage: Voice calls, messaging, Safari, iPod player,
Navigation, Weather & News, YouTube, Camera/Video, and email.
Very very impressive battery life!! I have an iPhone 3GS and I get a small fraction of battery life of what you get.. I am also jail broken.. I am just curious If any of you guys are jailbroken and if being jail broken drains your battery a lot more?
I am a little confused. My Verizon phone was able to roam on GSM because they used TDMA. Tell it was shutdown. The phone recognizes it as Analog. If PCS has TDMA, It could be technically be used on GSM.

Am I the only one who doesn't run my battery into the ground? I never let it drop below twenty percent before I charge it.
I only drain it when I'm checking the battery stats. Usually, I don't even let the battery go past 50% and I'll keep it plugged in when in the car using it even if it's at 100%. I keep it as full as possible.
I've been getting an average of 4.3 min per 1% usage. That's real usage like internet, cydia browsing, games
Not phony usage like ipod music. There's a reason apple's stats page have ipod usage seperate as almost double normal usage.
I never use push, notifications mostly off, location services mostly off (god bless sbsettings). fetch every 15 min, winterboard, lockinfo, sbsettings, NO unlock, 3g on, wifi generally on.
