    One thing I would add to this above if you don't find it in the threads mentioned, do not allow the phone to die fully, or in other words, don't let the phone drain to 0% and shut off on its own. Unless the battery is healthy and the charging and metering system is in proper calibration you run the risk of it deep-discharging and causing it to be unresponsive to the charger. Also, the best possible way to charge the phone and assure a 100% charge is to do so from a full power-off, then plug in the charger.

    I have many posts about calibrating the meter system to the phone, and you'll come across one or more on those threads.

    Good luck!

    ;)

    Very good. I simply didn't want anyone to get the idea that draining to zero is safe in all situations. For me, battery life has been just great. My average is 15.9 hours as reported by bada$$ battery monitor. I do plug in most days at least during my commute between home and work, but of course the drive in is with the battery already charged from over night.

    Most of the day I'm on wifi, only using 3/4G while either driving or out doing shopping or whatever. As always, your results may vary.
