    Today, I just got my 3GS, and I immediately started using it. Now, It's down to about 78% after 3 hours of standby, and an hour of use, with screen brightness at ~25%, and everything else on. During that hour, I downloaded a couple of apps, played some games, and used 3G a tiny bit. Is this normal?

    did you charge it for ATLEAST 4 hours once you got it?

    BTW: I didn't do it with my iTouch, and it drains battery quickly, but if you listen to music and such, it recharges back up.

    That sounds right. Using 3g data is rated to 5 hours of use, which would be a 20% drain with an hour of usage. And games usually drain the battery a little faster.
