    So for the summer im stuck at my grandmothers house with no internet access. there are no unsecured wireless networks around so I plan on using my dinc as my internet for these months. My question is if i leave it on for extensive amounts of hours on (say about 8 hours a day) will the battery suffer? will i be better off taking the battery out while im tethering or using my stock battery, since i have the 1750 and dont really care what happens to the stock battery.

    This won't hurt the phone or your battery at all, as long as you don't have it buried in a couch or under a bunch of stuff, lol..

    It will hurt your battery if it gets really hot and stays that way for a long period of time.

    The #1 way to damage your battery life is heat.

    use the service you pay $30/month for! who cares about battery? they are replaceable.
