    I usually don't turn my storm off. At night. it stays charging, and it's on all day, but it isn't used too extensively I think. Does this hurt the battery's charge? Should I turn it off while charging, or just turn it off and leave it?

    In my opinion it shouldn't matter. If your having probs with batt life turn your gps services to e911 and turn the brightness and dim time down just a bit

    It shouldn't affect the charge or the battery at all. I've been using blackberries for a long time and I have always charged them every night. I usually drain the entire battery each day to at least 45% so I rarely leave it uncharged. I leave it on all night too while I charge it and I don't ever remember having a problem.

    A tech buddy once told me that the batteries used in Blackberries are meant to be charged frequently and actually perform better with frequent charges. Whether this is true or not I don't know.
