    I PROLLY need to point out that we do not allow grammar posts. Just kidding, I just wanted to post a sentence with "
    "prolly" in it. I actually agree with you with one giant proviso and that is if the response is coming from a phone. Then any shortcut you want to use is acceptable.:icon_ banana:

    Now that the thread jacking, at least on my part is over, I have been charging my battery every night all night since I got my Droid in November. No harm so far.

    I'm just being typically pedantic. I just figured that if he used the possessive form of "battery" with the correct apostrophe and correctly spelled longevity, he probably should have used "probably" correctly, too. :) (Some people think "prolly" is an actual word.)

    I charge my battery overnight, too. I have on every phone I have ever owned.

    I'd go a step further than saying you should prolly charge it everynight and will say you'll prolly NEED to charge your phone everynight and prolly don't want to wake up just unplug it after a charge.:D

    Seriously these phones use a lot of battery.

    I recently purchased the Samsung Captivate, and am irritated by a "battery full" alert that sounds and lights up the display at night and tells me to unplug the phone. This generally wakes me up at 3am !

    The only way to stop this, is to set the display to not light up when plugged in, and to turn off all sounds. Of course, these options mean you cannot use the phone for an alarm clock, nor will you receive any emergency phone calls.

    So, before I change to another phone I am investigating this issue. I know to avoid the Samsung Galaxy S line, since they are all likely to have the same problem.

    But, does the Droid Incredible or Droid X have this "battery full" problem?

    That's good to hear as my Droid X should prolly arrive around Tuesday. I've charged all my phones like that, and my iPod touch, but after two years of charging like that the iPod touch straight dies around 11pm every night, which prolly has something to do with charging over night (or water damage but that's a different story, prolly)

    Ps: Does anyone else think of some sort of "Under the Bridge" type troll when they read Prolly?

    "Hey man, don't cross that bridge, there's an evil Prolly that will kill you if you don't answer her riddles three." I imagine a Prolly to look like South Park's parody of Snooky from the Jersey Shore.

    The Evil Prolly approaches...

    @video: You are kidding right?? I use prolly all the time. As well as gonna, wanna, etc.. Dunno what the big deal is. It's not like you are sitting there scratching your head trying to figure out what was said.

    The phone i had before my DX was an Lg Dare. I had accidentally left it overcharching during the night a handful of times. The battery bulged up and the back cover of the phone would no longer fit. On top of all this if i made calls longer than seven minutes it would go out with no warning. I dont dare risk it with this phone.

    LTB, you had a faulty charger or battery. Charging overnight does not harm these batteries. I, and millions of others, have been charging overnight for years and years without issue. Charging overnight is not what caused your issue. Your issue was caused by having a faulty battery or faulty charger.

    Relax and wake up everyday to a fully charged battery!! It's great.:)

    On your phone if you go to "Settings>About phone>Safety Information>#2 Battery Charging, one of the bullets states "Motorola batteries and charging systems have circuitry that protects the battery from damage from overcharging". So go ahead and charge away. :)
    I've had a Droid 1 for about a year now and a Droid X for about a month. I would plug the Droid 1 in before I went to bed and unplug it before I would leave for work. The Droid 1's battery still works as well as it did when I first bought the phone! I'm doing the same with my new X. :D

    Edit: I forgot to add that both the Droid 1 and X do not wake me up to inform me that they are charged. They both sit on my computer desk patiently waiting for me to grab them for the day. lol :biggrin:
