    I leave mine on 24/7. Charge it every other day, although recently with angry birds and this DF app, I can't quite make it to my 2nd night to charge. Need a little boost mid day.

    Verizon sales reps don't know squat about Android OS. Proof is this statement here! Countless people have said the same thing.

    My buddy just picked up an X and first thing I noticed was the rep put a task killer and an anti-virus on their device! Needless to say those were gone quickly...

    ... and on topic, I charge my phone every night. Some days it goes on the charger with 70% battery left, others it's under 20%. Depends on the day, but it always goes on the charger.

    I need a boost mid day also because at work sometimes I am in areas that do not get reception and I know the phone is searching which drains the battery.. I just never know where I am going to be so turning it on and off 30 times a day would drain it more...I just put it on my car charger on the way home or earlier if it needs a midday boost. Otherwise at home it's on 24/7 also on the charger...

    Kuku..
    So all the stuff I hear from ppl who say if you keep your phone chargin for a long period of time, say for instance. Charging it over night, that ur battery would pretty much be useless, or would be draining out faster isn't true?

    That could be potentially true if you were using an inferior device or maybe a mismatched charger but the fact is once the phone is full of juice it stops accepting charge from the usb, just enough to keep the phone on not to charge the battery. That is my understanding.
