    Mine's lasting all day easily. Three times better than the 3G I had before I bought this i4.

    I have everything on, including location services, push email, etc. I can make two days on light usage. My wife makes it close to 3 days. On heavy usage, easily through a day. I'm very impressed. It's nice not having to dumb my phone down for the battery to last. My Droid Icredible was horrible. I had together an extended battery just to make it through a single day with light usage. Battery drain onrush was float to 5-7% an hour with light usage. I see maybe a 2-3% on my iPhone with similar usage.

    I'm getting a full day with 10-20 percent left ar the end. I consider myself a heavy user.
    The only thing I shut off is Bluetooth when not in use and I screen is at a out 40% brightness.
    No complaints

    I was getting about 8 hours, however, mine is new and I was dl'ing constantly. I've since turned off my push email (didn't buy the phone for work, so who cares if it's pushed) I went about 24 hours with heavy WIFI use and dl's. Same thing happened with my 9700 until after a couple weeks then it got increasingly better. I have to say that I don't have any regrets switching.

    I will be honest, the battery on the iP4 last much better than I was expecting. I can go a whole day without charging my phone. When I do heaving web browsing(like I am as I type this) and read alit of email and messages, I still get excellent battery life.

    I came from a Blackberry and like the iP4 battery life more. I was going to buy one of those extra battery packs but I honestly don't need to.

    My only concern is what do we do in a year plus time when the battery needs to be replaced. I am not near a Apple store so taking it in for a battery upgrade in 15 mins is not something I'm looking forward too.

    My poor little 9700 has been lying next to my home computer without a charge since last Wednesday night. It still has 70% battery left. *sigh* That's the hardest part about saying goodbye.

    Yea the 9700 had amazing battery. I really liked that phone and will not give it up .... I think the ip4 and 9700 go amazing together. So far the battery on the ip4 has been great.. Big difference from the 3G/3Gs... also considering that it has the nicest screen i have ever seen...pretty impressed so far

    Wow...that program really sucks! Not only do they charge you all of that money, you're without your phone for over a week just for a battery.

    Yea it does suck. But it's always been like this. Chances are you will never have to use this service. unless you keep the same phone for like 4/5 years.

    I agree, but that's "IF" your problem isn't covered and "IF" you're not near an Apple store. However, it's not too bad considering the price of a new phone if you're stuck in contract and can't upgrade.

    You could always buy AppleCare Protection Plan ($69 at AT&T / around $45 on Ebay & Amazon) and have an extra year of coverage. My understanding is that you can purchase it anytime before your first year is up.
