I normally check yahoo email, stocks, weather 4-5 times a day (via edge)
I use safari and check this forum 1.5 - 2 hours a day (via edge)
I call about 20 minutes/day
sometimes I turn off wifi hoping that I can save more but not really sure because wifi goes to sleep mode when the phone is in powersave mode.
After 12 hours. 1/2 on the battery.
you can use terminal if you have on your iphone or just ssh to it.

I'm not so sure about openssh, but I assume you will see something like sshd or opensshd by running command above.
If you don't see anything similar.
cd /etc/init.d to see if there is a script file there. Look at it by type cat <filename>
Whatever is in that script is execute when your phone reboot. Sort of like the startup folder on your Windows PC.
I check that on my phone (bsd sub and openssh) there is dropbear on /usr/bin. On services, if I disable SSH, I still can scp to my phone without a problem and without draining my battery.
So I uninstall OpenSSH and tried connecting to my iphone but it didn't work. Btw dtube, have you changed your password? It's dangerous now since anyone can scp to your phone.
that is odd. I don't have openssh, just dropbear and I can both ash and winscp fine. Yes, first thing I did was passed change. Thanks for the check.
Sorry about typos. It is the iPhone keyboard that I have to get used to
LA20: you have PM ......
