Hey guys, i found this on a nokia forum and it seems it worked for a lot of people...
IF ANYONE IS HAVING PROBLEMS WITH BATTERY LIFE PLEASE READ THIS AND REPLY WITH YOUR EXPERIENCE
My phone started running flat in just over a day, it had previously lasted around 3-4 days with about 1hr talk time. I hadn't changed any settings and had tried turning it off before charging it to make sure nothing was running but for a week I had to charge it every day.
I decided to search the web and found a post on the web that said that the contacts on the battery were not good and could be fixed by bending them back in place.
I took his advice and followed these steps - DONT TRY UNTIL YOU HAVE READ THIS THREAD COMPLETELY:
1) Remove Battery
2) Look at the contacts on the battery, there are 3 gold ones.
3) Take a cocktail stick or something similar and VERY carefully reduce the size of the gap between each contact.
4) Put the battery back in.
My phone now lasts 3-4 days again.
I am now thinking it is a design fault with the way that the battery connects to the phone so hopefully Nokia will look into this if people have success.
Before you do what I did, you must remember that you could mess up your phone/battery if you are not extremely careful.
Make sure you don't short the battery out - hence the reason why I would suggest a cocktail stick over a pin or needle.
If you don't want to risk messing up your battery I also read that it is possible to make the battery connect better by putting a piece of card under the battery at the contact end so if you try that first please also post what method you tried.
Hope it works as well for you as it did for me. Good luck!
