I'd recommend getting a non us version.

I was e-mailing Bandai and a tamagotchi site to find this info. out...
I guess I got one of the first batches of Tamagotchis cuz it came with an extra battery. Each battery lasted me three weeks. I got really angry... My old tamagotchi from 96 has been dead for a while... but the connection was brand new. I bought a Duracell battery so hopefully it will last longer?!?

Well, it's partly true, but it's not all U.S. versions...just the very first run.
I've herd a rumer that the batteries in the us version dont last very long.Is this true?
From what I understand, the problem with the batteries dying every couple of weeks is a defect in the first release only. The very first run of Tamagotchi Connections have a constant hum (barely audible) which drains the battery. As far as I know, they've fixed it and the newer ones don't do that. The batteries last a lot longer now.
The way you can know which ones have the battery problem is by the front of the package. The ones with the defect have a spare battery enclosed and a round sticker on the front of the package saying "bonus extra battery enclosed".

Yes, I noticed the second (and later batches) have a beeping sound also, but the sound is a little different. The first batch has a constant beep--one long beep that never pauses (ie: beeeeeeeeeeeeep). But the "fixed" ones seem to beep intermittently (ie: beep...beep...beep...beep...beep). Both beep even when paused.
The connections still make a constant beeping though... I have the second batch, and it makes the weird sound. I've had my Connection for a little over 3 weeks though, and it's still going strong.
I have no idea what the beeping is from, but it seems the ones that beep intermittently don't drain the battery the way the constant beeping ones do.

First I would listen to it to determine whether it's the long constant beep, or the shorter intermittent beeps. The long constant beep is the bad one.
So, I bought one of the first batch with the extra batteries. What should be done?
If yours is the bad kind, I would just take it back to any store that carries them and tell them it's defective and you want to do an even exchange for one that works right.
That's what I did. I didn't even have my receipt. Most stores usually aren't picky about the receipt when you're doing an even exchange. I just told them the truth about the defect and that I was only wanting to exchange it for the same identical item.
