Will it come charged or not, so we can use it without having to wait 9 hours?

Should come with enough juice to power on and activate but you wanna let it charge fully before making calls and playing with it for any length of time.

It'll probably only take the same amount of time you charge an iPod. I don't think you'll need 9 hours.

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:

But the iPods don't come pre-charged. I guess we'll find out friday.

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 the real answer to this question, because I've had the phone for a month, now. Just like every other person on this board.

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.

I have been through a dozen or more new phones and they ALL had at least 20% charge in them

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.
