I Don't But My Husband Does And I Have Noticed Him Starting To Put His On The Charger Nightly Now To Recharge. My Phone Will Go For About 3 Days Without Recharging And I Was Just Wondering If This Is Causing His Battery To Lose A Charge?

Yes, I do keep my cell phone on at all times. I never have a true reason to have it off. If I'm going somewhere to where they need me to have it off, like the courthouse, then that's when I turn it off. Other than that I keep it on or on silent depending on exactly where I am at the time being.

I keep my phone on me all day and i check the time quite often. I normally have to put my phone on charge at night or it goes flat at about 10:30 the next day.

my cellphone battery last up to 2 days without charging...as far as i know, when you over charge the phone battery you lose you battery life as well...usually when you charge the battery it should only be for 2 to 3 hours 4 hours max depending if its lithium or not.

I have my mobile phone on for 24 hours per day because I see very little point in buying one and turning it off. I put it on charge every night as a matter of habit, although if I am away from home it will last around 4 to 5 days with average use.

for me, yes. because my father works abroad and he might call me anytime so i can't predict what time and when he would be calling me

Yah I always turm my phone on at all times. Because I never know that there will be some important calls. That why its a mobile phone. You have to carry it wherever you go. It includes turning it on all the times.

No, I don't. Sometimes I do forget to turn it off at night, but that is pretty rare. As I mainly use it to keep in contact with my husband when are away from each other during the day I see no real need to keep it on 24/7. My husband on the other hand keeps his cell phone on all the time. That way he can be reached by his boss anytime if there is a change in plans for work.

Yes i keep my cell with me all the time. Therefore i lost it a few weeks ago. It was in my pocket and it fell down. I checked my pocket later and it was not there. Felt so sad. Now i don't have any cell phone at the moment.

I don’t really turn off my mobile phone, most of the time I just leave it on. There are times when my phone rings when I'm sleeping- sometimes i answer it, sometimes i dont. if i dont want to be disturbed i'll most probably put it on silent. i'll definitely off my phone when boarding a plane though hehe! i've been using my phone for over a year now and i think the battery only last for about 4 days or so, previously it could last longer.

I don't leave my telephone on all the time. My telephone doesn't need a charge very often, but sure would if I left it on all the time. My daughter charges her phone more often than me.

As per me, mobile phone is for people to contact me at all times. So I keep it on. My friends and relatives, though they have my residential number, they call me only in my mobile as they know I have it near me most of the time. Probably the battery in your husband's mobile is of lower capacity and so it needs recharging every other night. My mobile is GSM model and even though I use it to talk and to text regularly, I dont recharge daily, I recharge it only once in 2 or 3 days. But my husband's mobile is a CDMA model and there is not much of a charge left by the end of the day and so his mobile needs recharging every other night.

I keep my cell phone off all the time unless I am using it, or I have to charge it everyday. I used to keep cell phones on all the time, I guess this one just sucks. I do believe there are so many charges you can do to a battery before it start to decay. I could be wrong though.
