I charge whenever the battery is low. It is about a week or few days. In fact, I do not use the phone often except for sms. However, for a particular day with excessive usage, I would need to charge it that very day.

I charge my phone once every couple of days- I usually wait until I have 1 bar- I have heard that if you keep charging it early it will wear the battery done- My phone is less than 6 months old- so it holds the charge pretty well- I always have it on- I think this is what wears the battery- it doesn't matter how often you use it- the battery wears down with the phone being left on-

My mobile phone only needs charging about once every three days. The same for my husband & daughter, who both have mobiles. We have a different charger for each of us.

I charge it every two days I guess... but If I use my mobile phone more frequent... I have to charge it almost everyday...and when I use it for large numbers of calls esp when im talkingh to my daughter in our province...It takes hours of speaking using the mobile phone calls then half day drains my battery. But if I dont have any important conversation to do... it takes three days before my mobile phone call for recharge. I really not fond of using mobile phone.

I always charge my cell phones daily at night. This is simply due to the phone being an old one with a weaken battery. The battery can last me about 48 hours with normal usage and about 24 hours with heavy calls.

I usually charge my cell every two days. I keep it off most of the time anyways, and it seems to hold well with a charge every two days. MY older phone used to need a charge each day, but I guess that's because it was an older model.

my cellphone is mostly for test messages. it is just often when i receive phone calls through the cellphone since i stay home most of the time and i prefer to receive calls through the landline. so i charge my cellphone only when it is battery empty. this is usually a couple of days from the day i last charged it. i seldom charge it if not yet empty or i haven't drained it yet because some say that this might ruin the battery life.

I hardly use my phone. So I charge it every 3 or 4 days. Or sometimes the thing beeps at me for days on end as it sits on a closet shelf in my purse. So could be once a week of I am not using it at all.

I have a Cingular Go Phone now and I don't charge it often. I think I could go a week without charging it. The phone I had before I had to charge everynight or every other night.

I'm only going to recharge my phone when there's only but 1 bar left meaning, I need to recharge it right then to avoid it drained out.

Charging of mobile depends upon how much u r using it daily. In my case i used to attend or make 4-5 calls a day plus i play games for 5-10 minutes so i need to charge it only once in 2-3 days. Secondly the battery of My mobile is also very good. Sometimes i charge my mobile only after 4 days.

It depends on how often I use it. If I don't use it for that long in a day, it can go on for two whole days without charging it.

i charge my phone when i see that its has one bar on its battery icon. i dont charge it when its still full or even half full. then i only charge it for 45 minutes to 1 hour. the manager of the store where i bought my phone, told me thats how you take care of the battery of your cellphones.

I usually recharge my cell phone every other day as I do not make many phone calls on my phone. I use it more for text messaging than anything else. I always let it run completely out before recharging so that the battery will last longer. There are time when I can go two days without charging.

I don't use mine very often. But I still need to charge it every day. I have a Motorola V560 and I wouln't recommend it anyone. The reception is really bad. Here lately it won't even ring if I have it in our back bedroom. It will ring if I run down the hall with it though. Also the text messages sometimes takes days for me to receive them. I will be glad when we are eligible for an upgrade!

I probably only charge my phone once every couple of weeks. It still holds the charge really well as Ionly got it last December. I also only have iton for a small portion of the day. You wouldn't believe how much the free credit piles up because I use it so rarely. It really is mostly just for emergencies.
