    turning off my phone

    So i was just wondering that if i have my phone on for a couple of days without restarting it or turning it off is that bad? Should i turn it off for a night? Or restart it once?

    Everything I have ever read says you should turn your phone off once a day for about 30 seconds.

    The Motorola Razr manual recommends powering off your phone every couple of days.

    Powering your phone off is a great thing to do. It gives it a chance to put things back where they belong so to speak.

    If you want to test the theory. Remember battery pulls???? That's why they're so effective.

    Also you should consider charging your phone while off. It made a huge difference in my maxx's. Both last longer when charged overnight while powered off.

    Maintain high performance by rebooting
    Manual? I don't need to read no stinkin' manual. That's like asking for directions.

    On a more serious note, I don't want to be bothered when I sleep, so I shut it down every night. I usually reboot after updating apps as well.

    That's not the same as powering your phone off once a day or so for 30 seconds or more.

    Always remember these things are handheld computers that can make phone calls. Try going a week without rebooting a Windows machine and see how happy it is

    I power my phone down every night and charge it powered off, doing so appeases the battery gods (FoxKat) and keeps everyone happy.
