Also know this is old, but that relates more to Ni-Cad then Li-Ion. Li-Ion prefer to not get that low of a charge, and can increase their overall lifespan by avoiding going below 50~ percent too often.
The phones always push to unplug them when they hit 100% but if I'm near an outlet I leave her plugged in. Also have a 3 foot USB extension so that way I don't feel tethered to the wall as badly.
