I really don't like to turn it off. I like to keep it on in case of a family emergency which has happened before. Ever since then I never turn my phone off unless it's needed for an update or something like that. I've never had a big issue with battery life on my phone I use it a lot so it tend to die faster although now that I have a tablet I'm not on my phone using the internet as much.

I've gotten calls at 3am before when something happened, and my cell is the only number most people have. That aside, even before I never turned my phone off because I'd grab it in the mornings and forget to turn it back on 'till I used it (which, especially in my dumbphone days, sometimes meant it stayed off most of the next day), and prior to Google Voice I'd never know how many calls I missed.

With my work Blackberry, I do keep it on, but my personal OG EVO, I do turn it off at night.

Even with my work Blackberry, I do at least reboot it once a week.

So, in my opinion, even if a smartphone is not shutdown regularly, it should be at least rebooted once a week.

Default already killed two batteries

i have had my EVO for a year and a half, and regularly charged it- rarely turning it off. in that time, i've had two batteries get completely fried. so maybe turning it off while charging is a good idea.

its actually good that you frequently turn off your phone every now and then. its good especially if your phone is slowing down or if somethings are not working right.

I turn off my phone frequently because I use an external charger on my EVO. I only use the USB charger thru the wall once in a while. My 2 year old batteries are still running well. I have a few extras so i rotate them. Also, my USB charging port still works on my EVO.
