    So when I get my DI on Tuesday should I charge it completly prior to turning it on and setting it up? If so around how long does this take?

    F- that! The battery will have some charge from the factory. If you're worried about the charge, I'd pop the battery in and turn it on to get through the first few screens, provided there's some charge. Then you can plug the thing in to power and charge the phone while you continue playing with it. But there's no way I'm ripping into the package, plugging it into the wall and waiting an hour or more.

    I'd use it while its charging. The first thing i'm going to do is apply the screen protector, insert my 16gb class 6 sd memory card and then put the case on. Then it will be plugged in to the charger and then activated. After that who knows where i'll end up ;)

    I'll be at work and can't play with it anway, so I will open it, and plug it in and let it charge completely before I turn it on and activate later when I get home!

    If i were you i'd find a broom closet somewhere you can sneak away for a few moments and get you some of that incredible goodness until you got home. I'm thinking of stripping down naked and rubbing the phone all over my body when it gets here. Is that going alittle bit too far? Ahh well, it'll be fun.

    Uh...yeah. I think that's a little much! :D

    Seriously though, I wouldn't even have to find a broom closet. I am the only one in the office most of the day, so I could play with it if I wanted, but any customers who called may notice the hostility in my voice when they called and bothered me! LOL Though we do have voicemail now, and I guess I could just let the VM pick up all the calls ;)

    What? It's at the very beginning. "Breaking in the battery the first time." It's right under the blue paragraph at the top. ;)

    Honestly, I've heard a lot of mixed things from "professionals" about if you should drain it every once in a while, etc. I don't think there has been much research on it since battery companies don't have to test this to sell them.

    Just don't keep your phone on silent mode, all that vibration...

    If you are worried about damaging the battery, no worries.

    No memory effect on this kind of battery technology. Go ahead and turn it on if you'd like. Then charge it after the nostalgia has worn off.

    i've read the first charge was two hours but mine charged in 1.5 hours.
     
  13. Please people, do yourself a favor and use your phone while it's charging. There isn't a break in period for a new battery. There's too much old information about different batteries being applied to lithium ions.
