    Default How Often Do You Shut Down Your Droid Incredible?

    Just as the title says, how often do you guys shut off your Droids completely, not just sleep (it is amazing how fast it can wake up, when you compare it to a computer)? This can includes simple restarts.

    I got my Droid Incredible last week and haven't shut it off since. What is the recommended amount of days?

    Currently:
    Up time: 189 hours, 32 minutes
    Awake time: 53 hours

    Just a fun, sharing thread if anything, nothing too technical.

    I actually shut mine off completely before bed every night. I don't need it on at night so I don't see the reason to keep it on.

    It is my only phone, so just like an old land-line, it never gets shut off.

    Granted, it stays in another room at night, so all I will hear is the ringer and not any other notifications.

    I practically never shut mine down but I think I"m going to start shutting it off because the battery charges completely if you shut it down and loses a bar practically immediately when I leave it on but charging all night.

    I did invest in extra batteries that often come in handy.

    Since I'm thinking about getting my sons each an Incredible in January I better stock pile some batteries.

    I use an external battery charger and cycle between 2 batteries so I power down at least once a day. If I didn't charge my batteries this way I would only power down when flashing things in recovery.

    I pretty much shut mine down everyday because I rotate batteries and charge them on an external charger as well. I have already discovered that doing it this way charges the battery much better. Its sad that HTC never noticed this problem or are unable to fix this issue with an update. This is the only flaw I really see as a problem with the phone. Other wise I'm very happy with everything else.

    I heard it is a problem that can be solved on HTC/Google's part since it is a software/firmware issue. However, it seems to not be the case as if it were, I'm sure they'd give it the utmost priority over simple graphic upgrades and what not (it would be worthy of a hotfix, in my opinion).

    It would seem that if they could solve the battery issues this phone would be hands down the best, that said the battery swapping and external charger are starting to get old.

    It depends on how many battery pulls I do or how many ROMs I flash...or if my phone dies.

    ditto ...I charge it every night because I don't usually use it at night.

    Ok, I'm starting to feel weird, I've had mine for two weeks, and while yeah the battery drains fast I haven't felt compelled to get a new battery or try the bump charge thing. I charge the phone at night, but I use it as an alarm (LOVE AlarmDroid) and so I don't want to turn it off. I have been powering off/on once a week in the morning. I haven't had any issues so far. Maybe I just got lucky.

    For example I've had it off the charger for about an hour this morning, idle mostly and I'm still at 97% battery.

    Only if I reflash or if I need to swap batteries. It's been a few weeks since my last. My storm would have been atleast twice a day.

    Mine is shut down while I am at work. No need for it there. On when on my break and then after work until I go to bed. I shut it off at night as well. I don't need it on 24/7 . I charge it nightly. It is my only communication so I make sure it is fully charged. The battery has lasted longer today. I have had the Incredible one full week now. I LOVE IT !

    I shut mine off every night to charge. I don't like having to bump charge.

    I turn my phone off usually every single day. I like to charge to full and then turn off and finish charging it until its green again. I've always felt like turning a phone (or any electronic) off once a day keeps it running well. Not sure if its a mental placebo or not.

    The battery/lack of ac power only is the only thing that holds this phone back. I have a car charger and wall charger so its not as bad for me but I still want another battery that can last a full day without being in the yellow/red at night. If only they could fit those 3500s in the stock case I'd get one.

    I never shut mine off and I don't change batteries. With the latest hot-fix and Battery Booster app, my battery is still over 30% when I go to bed at 11:00 PM. I charge it overnight and sometimes charge it in the car when driving. The only time I must charge during the day is if using GPS, otherwise my normal calling, email and web browsing lasts all day on a simple battery charge at night.
