    Hello !
    I've bought an Iphone 5 and i've unpacked it switched on procceded to activate it forgot that the sim card is necessary and ill have to wait till tomorrow till ill get a nano one so all i wanna ask is is it better to switch off the iphone until ill get the sim or let it be in the standby mode ?
    Im asking only because i want to have a good battery life in the future :p:cool:

    Turn it off if you're not using it.
    But weather you leave it on for a day or not it wont make a difference towards future battery life.
    They are made to charge and discharge for many many cycles.

    Yes, you can plug it in and charge it fully before you activate it.
