    Please rephrase your question. Difficult to understand.

    The expected life expectancy of a mobile device varies per user. Sometimes technology dictates this but thats rare. Depends upon how hard the user is on the device. To give an example The Sammy Focus device I carrier for two years and was in perfect condition was destroyed by my roomate in two months.

    If you're referring to "life timer" in diagnostics, it means total talk time.

    First off,

    Lets try to use complete words OK? Not everyone understands that jibberish shorthand you are trying to type...

    There are 2 timers/counters that are used

    Lifetime timer = total minutes talked
    Data counter = total MB downloaded on phone over cellular (but can be any network)
