    How does everyone feel about the battery life? I love this phone. My only concerns are that the battery life sucks. Also it seems like the signal bars aren't as strong as my other phone.

    What I've found is if you let the battery die a couple of times, 3-4 for me and overcharged it the battery learns and is able to keep a decent charge.

    All lithuim batterys need to be calibrated. Its not that the battery lasts longer it just calibrates the gauge to display a true reading. This info was in the manual for my Droid.

    I'm sure you know, but for others that may not. It's not a good idea to make a habit of this, lithium batteries work best when kept above a 30-40% charge. I agree that they do need to be calibrated but 1-2 times is plenty, then maybe again a few months down the road. Whenever possible try to keep the charge above 50%, your battery will thank you for it.

    Battery life is always defined in charge/discharge cycles. I figure that means it's best to plug it in when you can.

    this can be detrimental in the long run. Charging the battery "when you can" could end up shortening its charge and lifetime, just the same as with a laptop battery. In this essence, i've had a laptop for 3 years, and i still get 90% of the battery life that i did when it was brand new, my mother on the other hand, who charged hers whenever she could, was down to 20min of charge in under a year and a half. Lithium Ion batteries are a beast of their own, and you much train and take good care of them to get their worth out. I cycled and "taught" my battery during the first week, letting it die and fully charge a few times. As of now, its running pretty darn well for such a powerful device.
