I wouldn't make a habit of it, but letting it drain completely every now and then should be a problem. Be advised that when I say "completely" I mean until the phone shuts itself off. When it does this there is usually 5% charge left. If you let the device sit in this state for a few days and let the battery drain to 0%, you run the risk of causing damage to the battery up to having it no longer able to charge at all.
If the information is useful, Like the post, if the person was helpful, Thank the member.
