Hi Guys, Long time lurker first time poster Finally the countdown for me is on...8 days and i get my contract upgrade Decided a while back i was going for the G1...just been doing some reading up on it etc. Anyway i have a couple of questions if you wouldnt mind answering them.. I got a hold of the manual and gave it a quick going over, it says that when you first boot up you have to set up a gmail account, would i be quicker making one just now and saving myself some time so i can just log in straight away? I doubt i'll ever use it, i already have 2 email addresses but im assuming its mandatory since its a google phone? Also..what would be the suggested time to let it charge up before i start using it? Obviously charging it till the battery is full, but i think i read somewhere that a couple of days fully charging extends the battery life to its full potential...would this be correct? I see one of the biggest complaints for this phone is the battery life and from what i've read i am considering maybe getting a bigger battery for it, or at least a spare as i will be using alot for the internet when im at work...its the only thing that keeps me sane most of the time! Thanks.
