Ok, I've had my iPhone since it came out which has only been a couple months.It's already starting to be inaccurate with the battery percentage information.For example, It'll say 34% remaining, and after I plug it in for about a minute to sync with iTunes it jumps up to 65% remaining. No way it charged that much in just a couple minutes.

And just now, I had all the antennas on, streaming music over the internet, using MobileMe to track it's location, everything I could to kill the battery. It finally died after the batter percentage read 0%. I plugged it back in, and it IMMEDIATELY says 23% remaining. Again, no way it "really" charged that much. I know this is typical for batteries, but this usually starts to happen after 1-2 years of continuously being on and ALWAYS being plugged in.
I have the 3GS so it's only a couple months old, I charge once a day when it gets to about 30% remaining, and turn on airplane mode at night (I need it for alarm). I do turn it off for a few minutes every couple days too.Anyone else having this same issue with the battery, considering they're basically brand new? And are there any thoughts as to how to get the battery information more accurate?
