    I've had my phone since April and I love it.

    I have a question about charging. I use my phone for every thing, and I charge it every other day.

    Is this fine for the battery, or should I wait until the battery is almost dead?

    You should charge it every night. These batteries aren't designed to drain that low... This has been covered thousands of times if you read these forums a little bit.

    What do you mean "should" charge every night? Why is that?
    Can you elaborate on the "aren't designed to drain that low"?

    Thanks.

    These batteries don't have memories so you do not need to drain them. It has been covered before that you shouldn't let your batter drop below 25-30%. Just charge it every night or even when you're just sitting at your desk

    Oh, I know about the memory, I just didn't understand what it meant "aren't design to drain". Aren't design to drain sounds like it is not good for them to drain and they might get damaged if they do (drain); but there is a difference between that and "nothing happens if you charge them every day"...I guess it was just a wording issue.

    At the same time, I am kind of disappointed that I do have to charge it every day...I would expect to have a device like BB with a stronger battery. I don't talk much on the phone, but do play with it a lot (checking emails, etc) and I find that I almost have to charge it every day, which is surprising to me.
