Hello. My name is Elisheba. I just got my HTC Desire today. I'm excited. I love photography. I'm also a blogger: Life through my eyes My HTC is charging now and the led just turned green. (Should I turn it on? Or wait 5 more hours?) I found this in HTC site: http://www.htc.com/europe/faqs.aspx?p_id=312&cat=80&id=127114 . When I first receive my phone, do I need to charge the battery? Your phone ships with a partially charged battery so it's suggested you charge your battery fully before first use. The battery is fully charged when the notification LED turns green. It is recommended to charge the battery for 8 hours the first time to ensure that the battery has had time to recharge. I decided I can wait a few more hours. Going to bed now.
