Currently Being ModeratedJun 13, 2008 7:09 AM (in response to Casey H)There is probably a program running when on standby. The most common one is Mail; it it can't complete a wireless mail sync it will keep trying forever, even if you press the home button. Another possibility is you have Safari on a site that continuously or periodically updates. To test if this is the problem when you quit Mail or Safari do a force quit instead of just pressing HOME. To force quit an application HOLD the HOME button until the home screen appears instead of just pressing it.Lenovo T-60, Intel iMac (x2), Ubuntu 7, iPhone, Windows XP Pro, Leopard 10.5.3
Currently Being ModeratedJun 13, 2008 7:40 AM (in response to Lawrence Finch)I think this must be it. It would explain why turning off wifi has not at all helped and possibly made the problem worse. If mail is constantly trying to sync (through the edge network), that would be a big drain. And I have three synced mail accounts! Thank you so much and I will report back.imac, iphone, Mac OS X (10.5.3)

In addition to Mail or another application running in the background, signal strength can make a big difference.
If you are further from the cell tower, or inside buildings that partially block the cell signal, the iPhone like many other cell phones will user more power to try and maintain a signal.
Hope this helps,

Currently Being ModeratedJun 25, 2008 7:34 PM (in response to jordan46)If you've had multiple phones with the same problem it is almost certainly a software problem, not hardware.

Currently Being ModeratedJun 26, 2008 6:16 AM (in response to Lawrence Finch)Since I started force quitting safari and mail I have had no battery problems - also, my phone was having a problem connecting to my home network. Now that is solved and all seems to be well. Thank you for your help!!!mba, Mac OS X (10.5.3)
