    My BB Pearl 8130 will be here in a few hours! I've done some reading to get myself familiar with the device already but I did have one question that I couldn't answer to.

    I know the phone's battery comes with a slight charge, should I just play with it (like add my contacts) and let it get to low battery status or charge it as soon as I un-box it?

    Charge out of box so when you add your contacts you don't get half way through and it dies. Enjoy the crack!

    Batteries are more forgiving nowadays so I don't see a problem with charging it as soon as you get it. Years ago (and still a little true today, maybe) you'd probably want to charge it only after it gets low but it's not as big of a problem now.

    Enjoy your new berry! You should have it on the charger and add contacts at the same time! that way you can take it with you and have some battery for later!

    Just remember, with Li-ion batteries, you don't really want to drain them past ~ 20%. It's bad for them.
