    I hardly switch it off.
    It's just like, charge, use, charge, use.
    Is this healthy?

    I never switch mine off. Same as you .. Use - Charge - Use. I don't think there is a problem for using it like that.

    I don't think anyone hardly ever turns off their phone. A bold is not any different than any other mobile phone out there.

    Mine is on all the time, and the only time I will turn off the mobile Network is when I'm in the Subway.

    I never turned my curve off and so far, haven't turned my bold off. I don't see a problem leaving it on.

    I have to strongly disagree, as it is much better

    All kidding aside, no it won't hurt your bold to do that, and these newer batterioes work better if you don't let them fully discharge.

    Hey KB what's your current uptime? No app installs that required a reboot? I've always been
    Curious about long up times and how the device behaves after so long w/o any down time

    My phone is on till 12 Midnight, on back at 6 in the morning. Phone turns off at 10 back on at 8 on weekends. Those are the only times where I the phone is never touched, as I am either sleeping or reading. If necessary, turn it back on, look up a word, go back.
    Battery pulls happen sometimes. Sometimes... whenever it felt like it O.o

    Mine is on 24/7, excluding the rare occasion where I'll be attempting to avoid a call from someone, and then it'll be turned off, or just set to silent.

    I'll can usually do a battery pull once a week, as I don't add or remove apps that often.

    Essentially, when you turn it off you are really not turning it 'off', it goes into hibernation and uses very little energy. To turn it 'off' you have to take out the battery.

    I have been told by the att reps to turn it off for about 15 min each day (5:45 am to 6am for me) so that att can send updates. Sounding like I don't need to do this??
