    I was wondering if my iPhone's battery is normal.

    I get about 4 hours of usage till my iPhone 3GS dies.

    What I do is:

    -Email Checking
    -Twitterfon or Tweetie for twitter
    -Doodle jump for a few minutes


    Is this normal? I get only 4 hours of usage with hardly any gaming =/

    Any type of 3G usage sucks energy life extremely quickly.

    Are you using Notifications? Cause that's a battery drainer.

    4 hours is definitely not normal for what your doing there.

    4 hours is definitely not normal.

    1. keep your brightness down
    2. turn off wifi and ssh and 3g when you're not using
    3. turn off push notification for email (change fetch new data to hourly or something

    if you're still having problems, restore your iphone completely OR drain your battery completely and charge it till 100%

    The app I used, simplytweet, supports push notifications. I don't get THAT many not. though...
    So 4 hrs of that =/, a few mentions/DM once in a while =/
    mail set to fetch every 15 minutes. I hate randomly unlocking it to see that I have no new email

    I've restored it like 2 weeks ago....

    The 3g usage and notifications is whats making it like that. If you really dont want to give it up maybe you could get one of those battery that are a case at the same time
