    +1. The OP sentence doesn't make sense. What do you mean it goes both ways?

    before the flames start - what exactly are you talking about? If you are talking about pulling the battery out - the battery is not removeable :rolleyes:

    wow, how the hell you get letting the battery drain completely from battery pull - beyond me. :confused:

    Battery drains do you no good on batteries like this other than to recalibrate the battery life monitor.

    When I finally get my iPhone, I can guarantee that I will both push and pull its battery.

    I always drain the battery all the way down the first time I buy something brand new...then charge it for about 8-10 hours.

    Is that the way most of you do it?

    "battery pulls" and "iphone" never go in the same sentence.

    though its extremely compatible with blackberrys:D

    It is most certainly the wrong thing to do with this kind of battery. Let it drain once every couple of months to reset the monitor, otherwise never let it drain down.

    hes talking about a battery pull because it is something you do on a blackberry. When its starts getting sluggish and not as responsive you just pull out the battery while its on and it does a hard reset to the memory and brings it back to "normal"

    I had a blackberry, that was such a stupid pain in the arse. So no you do not do this with an iphone at all

    I have a work BB and that's where I got the term from. Also, my friends over at Crackberry :D

    I think you missed 2 key points -

    1. The iphone is incapable of a battery pull - the thing is not removable without dismantling the phone....:rolleyes:

    2. The OP clearly clarified that he was talking about draining it

    I know you normally don't let batteries drain down, but I've always heard when a battery is new you let it drain all the way down (I used to hear do this three times when an item is new).

    Why do you not need to do that now?

    seeing as how all of apple's portable's have integrated batteries, I would take a guess that iphones have special circuitry to maintain and monitor battery health like their macbook pros.

    something you wont see from RIM
