Don't the MacBooks come pre-charged? I'm going to guess the iPhone comes pre-charged for an optimal out-of-box experience. :laugh2:

Hopefully my wishing the iPhone to be more like a portable computer than a phone/mp3 player will apply here. :)
Hopefully. It would be a nice surprise when I plug it in to sync it in the At&t store parking lot if the battery indicator popped and said, "fully charged.":laugh2:

How will you activate it in the parking lot? Does your ATT store have wifi nearby?

i know that charging it first before playing with it improves the overall battery life, but just how much? will the battery life be significantly affected if i start using out o' the box?

thanks.

Like most Apple products, they should come charged. Every iPod and Laptop I have ever bought has come with at least 50% charge. I believe they are charged to at least 75% (prob 100%) at the factory, and what determines how much charge you have when you get it is how long it has been since then.

Really modern Lith-ion (or Lith-poly) batteries don't require the 'first charge' anymore, just charge them until they are full. This is still a hold-over from older batteries (or if companies skimp and go with cheaper batteries)

I've got a Panera Bread with free wifi next door to our local AT&T store, so I will definatly get the phone, then go next door and activate with a nice bite to eat as well.
