    Hi all,

    As the title describes, I've just picked up a 16GB 4S and am wondering if Apple charges the phone when they ship, and I should use it strainght away out of the box, or whether I should leave it on the mains for a few hours first?

    I want to maximise my battery and calibrate properly.

    Any suggestions?

    By the way, the rather humorous thread title can be chalked up to my iPad's autocorrect! Oops!

    Either makes no difference!

    I thought it was best to let the phone have a couple of full charge cycles before topping it up?

    they come about 1/2 charged. it's ok to sue it as long of course as you have enough harge to last you.

    There is nothing you can do or not do to change the battery. I would not calibrate unless it needs it. If you can charge when you get it, I would top it off, but if not do not worry about it and use it like it was stolen:eek:

    Just relax and enjoy your phone!;)

    'Calibrating' generally means that you do 2 or 3 runs of 100% to 0% over the course of a week or two.

    It doesn't mean that ALL of your charges or even your first usage has to be like that.

    (Nor is calibrating really needed these days, I just point out that if you were going to do it, you don't have to worry about it all that much.)
