    Is it true that to best charge a Li-Poly battery , you need to follow the following process???:
    1-Drain the battery totally to 0% level
    2-Place the battery in a sealed plastic bag in the freezer overnight
    3-Remove battery from freezer, let it sit for a while in the bag
    3-Recharge the battery fully
    4-Repeat this process at least 4 or 5 times

    Well I don't know about the FREEZER part of that list, but I did use steps 1-3-4, and my X10 went from 1/2 a day of use to 1 1/2 days of the same use, so it worked on my phone. I did it for the first week I had the phone. I don't understand why it works, because these batteries shouldn't have a memory, which is why they use that type of battery, but it does and it worked, so go figure... :rolleyes:

    Hi Guys newbie here, 2 week owner of the X10. Nice phone, hate how all the apps run even when you no intention of using them or have clicked into them , Sort of worries me when taking the phone abroad and racking up data charges even when not using anyway...

    Re charging the battey,

    Ive found that several leads seem to charge the battey as they all have a the same sized usb, EG the SE MW600 bluetooth headset charger, (carnt believe the phone didnt have a radio!!

    My data did not work whilst i was abroad. i live in Northern Ireland and flew to Barcelona, picked up a cruise and was all around the med; italy, france spain, corscia, sardiniaetc.. dont want to brag too much :D

    Once i was on the plane...i entered aeroplane mode and watched movies listened to some music etc. When i turned off AP mode i cud not upload to facebook or send pic. messages. Cant remember what it said but it had something to do with "service provider was off when finding a new service provider". (i could make calls home and send sms)

    Although it was a pain in the arse, i think it was a good security thing, so if ur mobile gets stolen, they cant run up enormous bills for you to pay when you return home!! And of course apps running while you are away without you knowing!

    Not sure if the freezer is a good idea. I work with some lithium batteries on compltely different products and cold temps definitely reduce the battery life (even when brought back up to room temp).

    Heh thanks for the great reply, With regard the Apps running... I downloaded the Advanced Task killer so when you click the droid symbol you see the amount of crrap running, Moxier mail? Time scape?? play now?? all that and i never use or even have set timescape up? i understand you cannot uninstall pre loaded apps but why do they run in the background? why dosent "force stop" work?

    yeh charged the phone in full, usingh the Mw600 radio headset charger, seems fine? hoping it wont mess it up.
