Today I turned on my phone after charging O/N at 7am. Listened to 4 hrs. worth of mp3s, maybe a half hr. of Pandora and browsed some news for about 20 min at lunch. Left 3G on all day until I though to check battery life at 5pm - 62%. I have 3G 90% of the time I try to use it. I am in San Diego. Are you happy w/ performance? What city are you in? Just trying to get my head around all the complaints. Service is not perfect, put given the price point, it seems to be a tremendous deal. Prost!
