    Typically? My computer.

    That way I plug it in before bed, and it'll sync and charge through the night.

    Wall charger at night, MacBook Pro by day. I never care about battery life, the phones worth it.

    I'm using a 3GS and I've actually found the battery life pretty good. I've been using it frequently throughout the day too because I'm off right now and because it's still new to me (just got it at the beginning of the month). When I return to work soon I won't be able to use my phone much during the day. The battery will definitely get through my work day.

    Usually through my pc overnight. As for battery the 3gs always lasted me a day, so this is better then that. As long as i get a day without charging im happy.

    I never charge with the computer. I only connect it to my MacBook to sync.

    Wall charger is connected to my first gen dock. Currently using my original iPhone and when I get my iPhone 4, it will be able to fit in the same dock - so perfect for me!

    Charge it via MacBook pro. Since the macs on the nightstand by my side of the bed I just let it sync and charge while I'm asleep.

    Mine charges while connected to a USB of a PC while at work. I don't charge it in the evenings or night.

    I normally use the computer/USB route because I have 2 laptops sitting next to me all day. If I have to charge it fast for some reason or have to charge it overnight, I use the wall charger.

    Computer during the day, then at night I let it sit in my JBL dock with Ambiance on all night :) Best .99 cents I ever spent 2 years ago!

    I have never, nor do I think I ever will use the USB connection for charging purposes. Only wall charger for me.
