    Switching from Android to iPhone

    No experience with an Android (iPhone 4 is my first smarphone) so can't help you there. My iPhone's battery is pretty darn good. I can go an easy 3 days (maybe more) just talking, a little texting and a little Angry Birds.

    No Battery Usage Stats and Slow to Brighten

    I thought 4.3.3 was for the GSM version of iPhone 4. The latest version for Verizon's CDMA iPhone 4 is 4.2.8, isn't it?

    No Battery Usage Stats and Slow to Brighten

    For anyone up this July 4th at 7:30 AM (;)) I left the phone on while charging it last night. This morning I saw 0's in the battery stats. :) Since I only get 1 or 2 bars at home, I usually turn my cell phone off since I don't want the battery to drain searching for a signal. I could use...

    Okay, so I held the home button and the power button down until the apple logo appeared (ignoring the "slide button to power down message). I'll recharge the battery tonight and in the morning, I should get battery statistics, I'm assuming. Thanks for everyone's help. I'll let you know how...

    No Battery Usage Stats and Slow to Brighten

    One more piece of information (don't know if it is relevant or not). I do turn my phone off at night.

    No Battery Usage Stats and Slow to Brighten

    There are a couple of oddities I've noticed with my iPhone 4 (owned less than a week, running 4.2.6). In reading articles about maximizing battery life I found out about the "Usage" and Standby" statistics in Settings->General->Usage. In checking mine I see no values, only dashes. Underneath...

    New iPhone User Questions

    Thanks for help, everyone. I never thought of using Airplane Mode at home. Since this is my first smartphone, I never had a reason before. I guess my colleague was right after all. That is different. With my past two phones I could transfer photos to my laptop with Bluetooth.

    New iPhone User Questions

    After waffling between the HTC Incredible 2 and the iPhone 4 for two weeks I put my money down for the iPhone 4. This is my first smartphone and I've had it less than a week. I have a few basic questions. 1) I read the recent thread on battery life. Good stuff there. Is it a good idea to...
