Use of your iPhone 3GS and battery power

April 12, 2010

The 3GS has a longer battery life and is twice as fast as iPhone 3G. The Iphones have built in rechargeable lithium batteries charged via USB to your computer system or a power adapter.

The battery life on the 3GS can give you 5 hours of talk time and 300 hours standby. Internet use of up to 5 hours on 3G networks but up to 9 hours on Wi-Fi. You have up to 30 hours audio playback available and video playback of up to 10 hours.

HSDPA on the 3GS gives faster maximum download speeds (up to 7.2 Mbps). Tethering allows the iPhone to be used as a 3G data modem for mobile broadband for a laptop or netbook – but you will have to purchase an additional Internet Tethering Bolt On which will cost you £15 a month with a 3GB cap or £29.36 with a 10GB cap.
