    I never knew that using 3G and WiFi have different levels of battery consumption. My job requires me to travel a lot and I use 3G most of the time even though when WiFi is available. My mail checking too is on all the time but I seldom get mail so it’s really just a waste of my battery. Can anyone share more tips on iphone battery life? I need this because I’m out on the field for more than 8 hours a day and at the end of the day my battery is always drained.

      Hi Raymond, I’m a part of a small sales team in Seattle. I have my guys avoid checking their phone every few minutes. They just leave it alone until we’re out of meetings and check it only between meetings. We do all of the heavy lifting back at the office. WiFi is bad here so we have to use 3G.

    I don’t care what Apple says. I can NEVER get that much time on my iPhone. The battery is drained in half an hour or so. I rely on email and Safari when I’m out and that taxes my battery. I have my screen on medium but using maps and email eats up the battery.

    I can get my iPhone 3G to make it through the day with one simple trick: put it to sleep when I’m not using it. As soon as I check something I press the button on top to put it to sleep. The screen dims and that stops a lot of power consumption.
