    You are good, now just let it drain below 20% about once a month.

    I don't think it really makes that much of a difference. Especially since most people will upgrade their iPhone every 2 years or so as it is. The battery needs replacing about that time anyway.

    For pretty much every single one of the 2 years I had my iPhone 3G, I had used it until it ran out of battery. That means there were at least 600 full discharges and recharges for that battery, and it still has a fantastic battery life.

    Rule of thumb is, though, if you can keep it from running out, then plug it in. It's not a big deal if you let it run flat like once a week.

    I never did any special battery procedure for my iPhone 3G and it's almost 2 years old. All I did was try to charge it when I saw the battery level was at the half way point. Granted I can tell the battery drains a bit faster than it did when it was new, but it's still fine. If I hadn't just upgraded to an iPhone 4, I might think about a battery replacement soon.
