    I forgot what its called, but when you first get it do you have to let it die first then charge it to 100%? Or vise versa? To condition the battery?

    NO. Not required. You phone will have around 80% when you get it. Just use it and put it on the charger when you go to sleep! All the battery myths are stupid and you will hear a hundred of them here!:p

    Just use and enjoy your phone.

    No, you don't need to do anything special to "condition" your battery.

    The only reason you might want to run your battery down to ~5% and do an full overnight charge is to reset your Battery % Indicator.

    It's good to occasionally use your device. (leaving it dead in a drawer for 6 months isn't good for it.)

    Other than that, just charge it when it's low, and use it normally. Nothing special you need to do.
