I have heard that before and maybe it's mind over matter I am not sure. I just like to completely drain my battery after it's first charge and about once every two months (on purpose if it doesn't happen without). It's not that I don't believe you, I understand the logic behind it completely. I just want to make sure that my phone is functional in ANY situation outside of physical damage. Also, mind over matter possibly but I do see improvement in letting the battery completely die then fully re-charging it without unplugging it if you notice a drop in battery power; even with Li-ion batteries.
Thank you for your input though, it's a good peace of mind to know for those who have an L900 that is functioning correctly!
Here is something I haven't said yet on this forum... I WAS able to get my L900 to charge with the charging cable it came with. Somebody metnioned the difference in charging frequency and maybe that's the problem. So for me it was either exchange the phone for something else or buy all new cables for home, work, car... etc and make sure they are the right wattage / amperage / whatever and test them all out.
By the time I did all that I might have been out of my 14 day exchange and I would have spent money that could easily have totaled over the $35 re-stocking fee. So I just took the easy way out and swapped the L900 for the Titan 2.
I am not here to knock on the L900, I loved it for the less-than 48 hours I had it. It was the perfect size and everything. I just don't like surprises like this.
The old saying is "burn me once, shame on you, burn me twice, shame on me." well I see it as "burn me once, SEE YOU LATER!" when it comes to something technology related.
It's the whole reason I am back to WP7 in the first place. I took a hiatus and had an iPhone for a few months and an Android for a few weeks and said EFF THIS! and came back. Couldn't be happier and I am glad to be back and part of this community. Whether or not my T2 is as popular as the L900 I could care less. WP7 is where it's at!
Long reply I know.
