    I have already looked at the battery life topics and none of them relates to this issue I'm having. I'm a former ipod touch generation 1 user then just got the iphone 3g 2days ago as a birthday present. I jailbroke it the first day I got it, and was very successful on the recent firmware 2.0.2. I used quick pwn. The issue is after installing winterboard (using vista perfection theme) the battery shows up full and green everyday...but, once i restart the phone its like almost used up

    Hmm, there could be a number of things in my opinion that could've caused this. Corrupt QuickPwn, corrupt theme, or a whole bunch of things. It might even be the charger being used! Thing is though, I'll try my best to help (good friends have iPhone 3Gs and I have a first gen Touch), but I'd like to know some more background before truely recommending anything. The only thing I can say right now is to do two things: Either A. Upgrade to 2.1; or B. Do a full restore and try again. What I can say is that your brightness level has no effect on battery level in the sense that it shouldn't kill your battery off that fast. Also, try running your iPhone w/o jailbreak and see if the Apple Store can check to see if you have a defective battery (you're under warranty for a year).
