just a quick question for you iPhone veterans.

Would you recommend that i drain my battery once a month? I keep it on the charge if in not out. I keep it on the dock at home and keep it tethered my cy computer at work.

Thanks guys.

I don't think it would hurt. I would also say that rebooting once a week would be a good idea, just to keep the OS running smoothly.

With the battery type in the phone it is not necessary to drain it once a month but as Hawk said it won't hurt it. I do it just out of habit from using old rechargables in my other devices. His recommendation to reboot once a week is also a good one. Especially if your phone is jailbroken and you install a lot of software. Some of the programs don't appear to exit fully when you press the Home button and if you end up with several running in the background you could have slowing in performance. Rebooting periodically will ensure that your memory is only used by the OS and anything you ran recently.
