    How is it discharging? If it seems anything less than normal (either charging or using it) I would take it back.

    3.1 has some known battery issues that Apple are looking into. Also Li-Ion batteries have a battery meter memory effect. Try discharging fully and then recharging for a full 8 hours. If the problem continues then I'd presume it's this 3.1 issue. It's not a hardware problem unless you are finding that the battery is fully depleted and the device auto-shuts down off sooner than normal.

    First thing to do is reboot your iphone, then run apps to drain the battery down to 10%... let it sit for 30min, then plug it into your computer and fully charge it for 8 hours. After fully charged, reboot it again, then if problem persists, restore and return your phone for a new one.
