I'm a new Droid user - I searched the forums for an answer to this question, but it doesn't look like this has previously been discussed. I apologize if it was and I just missed it.
Is multimedia mode safe for you phone to be on for long periods of time? I am getting rid of my landline and will be using my Droid as my primary phone. So I plan to get a stand (Mikradle or ezStand) and keep it on a table my living room, charging, when I'm at home. I'll also have another stand at work so I can have it sitting on my desk near the computer.
I know that most of the stands available have magnets to put the phone on multimedia mode. I don't think I really have a need to keep it in multimedia mode, but I just want a stand that will hold up the phone and make it easy to reach when I hear it ringing (or make it easy to see the blinking LED when I've missed a call and have a voicemail or text).
My only concern is about having the screen be on constantly, possibly for several hours at a time, while the phone is plugged in and sitting in a cradle. Is there a possibility of the images being "burned" onto the screen, like computer monitors? (I know that this supposedly doesn't happen to newer monitors, but it's actually happened to my computer monitor at work, which is only a few years old. I can see remnants of the toolbars/bookmarks from my Firefox browser, even when I am in a different program.)
I know that I can stop multimedia mode by removing the magnets from these stands, but I guess I won't bother to do that if I know that multimedia mode is safe. Any comments?
