    I have read the official battery guide and it see its similar to a laptop.

    300 Cycles for laptop
    400 for iPhone

    My understanding is, 20%, then charge, 20%, then charge, 20%, then charge, 20%, then charge, 20%, then charge, = 100% = 1 CYCLE and to plug it in (LAPTOP) when near a plug to keep cycle count down.

    Anyway, on the apple forum, opinions vary, some say to wait until you get the 20% warning, then charge it, well, I did that day and got 10 hours of use, internet, voice, on edge though...tonight trying 3G,

    SO what is the best way, is it like a laptop, charge when possible or let it drain?!?!

    PLEASE advise!

    Thanks.:apple::D:apple:
