    Is there any problem with keeping the BlackBerry charger plugged into the phone even though the battery is fully charged already - like just to keep it at 100% at all times? When I'm home I use the BlackBerry nonstop and just keep the charger plugged in while I work - any problems for battery or phone by doing that? Thanks...

    No, staying on the charger most of the time won't hurt your BlackBerry battery. You can shorten its life by draining it completely, but keeping it on the charger won't hurt it. It will stop charging when it is fully charged.

    JeffH is right. These Li-ion batteries love a charge.

    Check Welcome to Battery University for lots more information.

    I would remove the USB plug if using it all day just to avoid the wear and tear on the USB outlet. They can separate from the circuit board and are expensive to repair.

    You need to get the charging cradle! It is always my number one accessory!

    Micro USB connections are pretty stout and they're small which reduces leverage. I wouldn't worry about that.
