    I can fry an egg on my Iphone 3G. Surprise the charge is inconsistent. Sometimes last for one or two hours, sometimes a day. ..... I felt that the phone is playing punk with me.

    if that's the case, then what's the point of having multitasking when battery gets depleted real fast? probably that's the reason why the current iPhone version does not have this feature

    It is true. I fully agree. I remember the i had the phone fully charged before sleep. When wake up in the morning, the phone sometime feels hot and battery drained to 1/4 bar.

    Sometimes, you don't need to restart your iphone. Just press and hold the top Lock Button for a few seconds until the 'Slide to Power Off' appears. Do not power off instead press and hold the Home Button (centre button) for a few seconds until it disappears. This will close any stray or problematic apps running in the background. For Windows users, imagine this as the Control+Alt+Del. Works for me every time when the battery drain appears.

    To preserve battery life further:
    1. Turn off Bluetooth
    2. Turn off Location Services
    3. Set your Fetch / Push to Manual
    4. Turn off Notifications

    Hope that helps.

    This sounds like a scary movie. Dun play play with lithium products. One wrong sudden discharge... (Ris Low comes to mind)

    Location service means apps that make use of your current location. For example, apps that locate ATM machines around your current location, or apps that locate food places around your current location.

    if that's the case, it means that it will be activated on-demand right? it won't run in the background all the time right?
