    Did you charge your battery up all the way before use,,let it deplete all the way before recharging again,,,does it even matter?

    Being my 1st smart phone I'm in the learning curve,,,my god Angry Birds kills the battery FAST!!

    No, poontab is right lithium batteries do not have memory. Charge it first by all means but you don't have to fully discharge afterwards. I charge mine on an "as needed" basis. Also you cannot overcharge these batteries, once they are fully charged they will stop charging.

    Some say it is a good idea to let the battery run down once a month or so. I don't do that but it wouldn't hurt if you do that. Just don't do it every day.
