With the older phones the batteries were set up in such a way that they have memory build in. That means that back in the day before the smart phones came out, you had to let your phone battery die the first 2-3 times allow the battery memory to max itself out.
The new batteries are ion ones which means you're actually wrecking your battery by letting it run it's max and letting it die.
I have found, especially with the new iPhone 3G S that the battery life is actually quite bad. The program runs incredibly smoothly without any problems but the cost of that is that it sucks the life out of the phone. I always have a cord with me to charge usually at least once thru the day(but I'm also a very heavy cell phone user).
Allie, it might just be the new generation of the crapberry. Those new smart phones seem to be able to much now, that it just kills the batteries.
