Default Connecting phone to PC all day

So, my employer just issued me a shiny new Motorola XPRT to replace my BlackBerry. Really liking it -- except for one thing that I'll probably post about later in a separate thread -- and I have a question. While at the office, I used to leave my BlackBerry connected to my PC all day via USB. I know that's pretty common with the BlackBerry -- I've seen others do it, and I just followed suit.

Is doing this advisable with my XPRT? I'm afraid of the battery deteriorating as a result. That happened pretty quickly (i.e. within a year or so) with the BlackBerry, though I of course have no idea whether the all-day charges were the reason, or even whether that's abnormal.

That's probably not good for any device

I can't see that this would cause problems for any device. Lots of people leave their smartphones cradled or otherwise on charge all day without ill effect. I do it in my office because my Sprint signal is weak there and the battery would drain quickly if not on charge. At most it might decrease the life of the battery a bit, but I'm not even sure of that because I've heard that keeping Lithium batteries topped off is actually good for them. And batteries are cheap anyway. I see it as a small price to pay for knowing I always have a full charge when I leave the office.

Motorola XPRT

The Motorola XPRT is Sprint's first Android phone to focus on business consumers, particularly reformed BlackBerry usres. One quick look at the XPRT and you may do a doubletake - wait, what? Is that a BlackBerry Android Phone? No... it's no... Read More
