Does it do your desire any harm if you never hardly turn it off?

    With most of my previous mobile phones i have normally kept them on pretty much all the time, and only if the battery has run right down is it a case that the phone will turn off.

    Is it a good idea for long term performance of the phone to at least turn it off once a day, or does it not make any difference long term?

    Cheers

    Makes no odds keeping it on all the time.

    I dont think it effects it.

    I try to keep mine on unless I need to restart it.

    Typically speaking, i think it will shorten the life of the processor if you leave it on 24/7. By shorten, i mean from like 20 years to like 15 years at a completely random guess but it does shorten it. I turn mine off overnight as i have home phone + alarm clock.

    I've been leaving mine on 24/7 and it seems fine so far. My last phone )SE W960i) used to reboot itself sometimes and when it powered back up it said that it rebooted to make it run more efficiently. I leave mine on all the time as my Dad is old and I need to be available in the middle of the night incase he gets ill, plus I use it as an alarm clock :)
