Does anyone know if the battery is fully charged out of the box? If not how much charge is in it? How long does it take to fully charge it? Can I use it right away if I also put it in the charger or does it have to sit there teasing me for a few hours first? ii

When have you ever had a phone be fully charged out of the box? You think they're staying up all night the night before to plug in a couple thousand Evo's at each store to top off their charge. Please. It'll be just like every other phone and have 1/2 or less charge on it. Enough to get up up and running and out of the store and then you can go home like everyone else and play with it while it's plugged in and charging... put your head back on and think logically about your questions.

Go re-read his questions and then ask yourself - Could I have read the couple hundred already-published reviews to learn this information? HERE's A LINK IF YOU NEED HELP WITH THIS PART
I'm baffled by the immense lack of self-sufficiency in our world....but seriously "will it be fully charged when I take it out of the box?" Nice question.

Wow! I fully admit that was kind of a newb question and a bit lame of me considering my long history with PDA's and phones and technology in general. However with that said;
A) Come on now seriously, you could not have just said about 50%. I wanted to know from someone who actually HAD the device and how much it was charged out of the box and since I do not have one yet I am unsure how much it drains in relation to being used while charging.
B) No I did not expect them to be charging batteries all night but sometimes batteries come charged from the factory. I have purchased camcorder batteries that were so it really was not THAT stupid huh?
I also support laptops at work and some manufacturers pre-charge them. I was unsure what HTC did as this will be my first device from them. You cannot assume every manufacturer ships the exact same way, hence the question.
C) beecee I am very self sufficient, thanks. I just thought I would ask real fast while I was here. I did not think it that big a deal and used a smiley to convey humor in my own question. Responding like an *** just makes you look like one so there you go. Do you feel better now that you put me in my place and showed me how lame I am? Good, I would not want to see you waist all the effort in typing something constructive. I will make sure to point this out the next time you ask a question that could have been answered first by a Google search.
I can point out my long history on the net and how I help people all the time and I don't treat them like idiots even though sometimes they do ask newbie or lame questions. Sometimes people just get in a grove and post stuff. The point of forums is to help each other.
Keep responding like that and I will think I am in an Apple forum, sheesh!
Yourdogsdead thanks for the support man. I am used to jerks on the net, I have been around since the old Fidonet days and have seen it all.

Still no reason to be a jerk about it. If I wanted to be treated like that I would talk to my Ex wife! ii
When on the forums you have three options. Post and be a jerk, post something constructive or don't post. I usually choose the later two.
Have you seen the number of repeat questions on the forums lately though?
I am not the only one that doesn't Google! ii
