What is the maximum recording time for recording a voice memo if your iphone is fully charged before you start recording?

    I've run a test lasting for 1 hours and 30 minutes (the phone suspended almost all the time; the resulting file size is 52 Mbytes); the battery level (on my 3G S) decreased from 98% to 90% during this.

    I've repeated the test on the 3G. In 1:10, the battery level decreased from 100% to 96%.

    That is, the battery life is excellent on both the 3G and the 3G S.

    BTW, the OS version is 3.0 on both the 3G and the 3G S.

    Before the 3.1 "update" i had no problems recording my 1hour 10min classes. I was amazed , of how easy I could use it, and even when my recordings on my iPhone wouldn't load and play I could easily track them down with iPhoneExplorer and convert them from .mov top .mp3 files.

    In my case it automatically stops recording at about 32 minutes. This has even cost me money, I downloaded the iTalk app but i can't transfer the recordings to my pc because I don't have a Wi-Fi connection. Then I PURCHASED the SpeakEasy app with which I could supposedly sync my recordings straight to iTunes, but for some reason it doesn't seem to find my recordings on my BackUp folder.

    Apple definitely dropped the ball in this one, I mean, why even tell us to update our iPhones if you hadn't even checked if there were any bugs, especially as big as this one.

    oh and another thing...can anyone link me?? where can i report this bug?? maybe if enough people report it it'll pressure them to fix this quickly.
