Look, I agree with most of the posters above. When you have a smart phone, it's doing way more than making calls. The more you do, the more the battery will run down. Just be glad you aren't waiting on the 4G iphone. I just talked to my Verizon rep and he said that in a test market, they downloaded a movie in 3 minutes (not on an iphone obviously). However, it pretty much drained the battery.
