    My coworker and I both have the Incredible and we both take a different approach to taking care of it I guess. I turn my phone off every night (more or less to get that extra charge and not having to waste time turning it off) and she rarely turns hers off. Yesterday her up time was 165 hours whereas mine is usually about 16 tops. She has had more issues with her phone that a simple restart has fixed also.

    So what about you guys? What is your up time currently?

    I'm like you, I turn mine off at night, but use the crap out of it during the day. I play with it a lot (she said?) and even occasionally make a phone call or two :)

    I have had no major issues. A few annoyances maybe, but never had to do a reset. (yet)

    My phone is on 100% of the time unless I need to restart. I'm on call 24-7 basically, so it can't go off!!

    I generally leave mine on all the time, though I've had to do a few restarts here and there.

    Current uptime is 161 hours. No problems here and battery life is actually the best it's been since I got the phone lately.

    That said, I have had a few apps force quit. I will likely reboot on the next charge.

    I am just in the habit these days of turning it off instead of silencing it because then when I wake up, I can just unplug and replug to get a longer charge. Then after my shower, I usually repeat that one more time before I leave for the day.

    My up time is only 25 hours because I turn off phone to top off charge.

    I would restart my computer more than once a week (165 hours is almost a week).

    I feel like doing the same with our smart phones is a good way to optimize performance since it is essentially a mini computer.

    I leave mine on all the time except for occasional reboots and let charge while sleeping at night. But keep it on.

    I also leave my phone on at all times except for needed reboots. Just in case theres the old emergency at 3am I don't wanna miss it!

    No real problems...a few force quits but other than that it's been smooth sailing!

    See, I turn off my computer every night too lol. Mainly because it is in my bedroom and it has a bright light on it and it increases the heat in my room. Does leaving something on for a longer period of time really optimize performance?

    A tear comes to my eye to see phones being left on for longer than a day without a restart or battery pull

    Usually about 2 minutes, if I'm lucky.

    Oh... wait...

    Today mine was 16:45 hours Up time, 3:28 Awake time. I was at work for 12 hours, didnt have WiFi where I was, had 3G mobile network off when I wasnt using the phone, and rarely ever use the GPS, unless on vacation. My battery seems to work fine, all day and its just below half. I used the phone a lot during downtime, i'm and Air Control FIEND!
