    Had to share; not sure if this is news to anyone, but I had no idea this was possible until this morning.

    So, I regularly swap batteries on my Q10s - I have a work Q10 and a personal one, often I neglect to charge the work one overnight, so its pretty low on battery the next day, whereas my personal phone gets plugged in overnight. So in the mornings when I get to work, I've been swapping batteries and then leaving my personal cell plugged in at my desk for the day (while carrying the work one around) ..

    I realized his morning, if I have the phone plugged in, I can remove the battery and replace it without the phone shutting off! That's amazing for me; no downtime for reboot at all.. I now leave both phones plugged in , swap their batteries, and no reboot on either phone!

    It's the little things that mean a lot. That may not be significant to many but when I found that out I was happy as well. Cheers.

    Cool!

    One question though

    If you leave both phones plugged in, why do you still need to switch the batteries?

    If you leave both phones plugged in, they are both charged, aren't they?

    He's likely plugging one in to keep it from shutting off while he swaps the batteries around; and once the batteries are swapped, he disconnects the one he had just plugged in recently.

    Then take the batteries out, put them back in only when the phones are unplugged.

    Safety First , I will not doing that replace battery , if phones or charger is faulty is risky to life. Turn OFF the 220AVAC wall plug before replace the battery.

    Its risky to life? How?

    AFAIK, people have been performing battery pulls on blackberry phones since day 1, without issue. This is a battery pull while the phone is being powered by the A/C unit- I guess I don't see the risk?

    let me make that more explicit for you:

    That's amazing for me; no downtime for reboot at all.. I now leave both phones plugged in WHILE swapping their batteries, and no reboot on either phone!

    better?

    You can also use an external battery pack if you don't have access to a wall plug.

    Of course I understand.

    The underlying question was directed on why don't you charge both phones at the same time if, obviously, you have two chargers. and then not have the problem of battery switch at all.

    But that is your way of doing it and that is fine if this works for you

    He likely wants to have a phone with him as opposed to be hugged to a wall all day, just a guess, hence why he is pumped about being able to swap batteries without a reboot.
