    How are you using the iPhone> The battery could drain quicker than normal if you are streaming videos, playing graphics intensive games, or using it in an area with very poor signal.


    Take a look at this Apple page, it has tons of tips for improving battery life -> Apple - Batteries - iPhone

    Cellular signal strength has alot to do with this as well. A weaker signal causes the phone to boost it's sensitivity, thus consuming more battery power. I know when our network extender goes down at work, my phones battery discharges much faster.
