hey guys i recently bought an iPhone, and started using it from the box, i used the internet, google maps, checked email, watched a few videos and listened to music, oh and make calls.... occasionally i put the iPhone into the computer to upload music, and it would charge here and there..

from what i heard, that you were meant to fully charge the iPhone once you opened it up... i obviously did not do that. i fully charged it for 6 hrs the night i had it but that was after i had been on and off it... is my iPhone battery screwed now? ive ben kind of noticing a short life (after 7 hrs stand by, a hrs of usage im getting 75% remaining battery life?)

No I don't think this will have affected you, it didn't affect me anyway. I got mine for christmas so as soon as my stuff was synced I was straight on it lol and my battery life is better than most.

You shouldn't have any problems. These new batteries don't have to develop a "charge memory" like initial cell phone batteries.

you should be fine. When I got my phone I played with it for a while before charging it and to me I have great battery life.
