    So I was considering using my droid as my alarm clock in the morning, but I have heard that if you don't turn your phone off at night while it is charging it is bad for the phone and battery. Any thoughts on this, is it safe to use my phone as an alarm?
    Thanks

    You should be fine as long as your using the stock charger or at the least one that is intended for your phone. It essentially cuts the charging off. When its full if I remember correctly. I charge my d2 all night every night with no issues.

    Ya you're fine. Since I've had my phone it's been off for a cumulative total of maybe 3 hours.

    Motorola knows how to do stuff when it comes to charging. It stops charging when its full even if its still plugged in

    However you might get a phone call in the middle of the night and... say what was your phone number :)

    Wait... What? Should I be turning my phone OFF at night?
    Do you do that?

    I don't think I have ever owned a phone that needed to be turned off [ever]. Of course the occasional reboot....
