    Reading threads on overnight issues like battery drain, etc, I find myself wondering if I'm the only person left who just turns off their phone at night. Phone gets a reboot daily, battery gets used about 1/3 less than if always on.... Am I the only one?

    Nope, I do it too. Phone off and on the charger when I go to bed.

    I don't turn mine off at night. Just a top off in the morning and evening. I do restart it about once a week/couple of weeks.

    I keep mine on just in case of emergency calls. But it's on silent, battery saver, and Do Not Disturb.

    I have never left my phone's on at night. Turn off phone, plug in charger, go to bed is my ritual, and I've never had any battery problems.

    I've had a cell phone for nearly 15 years and I NEVER shut it off, defeats the purpose of owning one.

    It's my alarm clock so most nights I go into airplane mode. But if I'm off I absolutely turn mine off. I need my sleep. Pretty much everything can wait till morning.

    Set my P3 on the Stand at night, take it off in the AM. Plugged P2 in at night and unplugged it in the AM. Never had any battery issue on either phone. Cell phone is the only phone I have so if it is off, I'm unreachable.

    I have one for my convenience. That's its purpose. Your purpose is obviously quite different than mine.

    I charge mine before I go to bed, shut it off, and turn it on first thing in the morning. I don't want phone calls/notifications/messages/email at all hours of the night. Rebooting the phone in the morning now is a fifteen second no-brainer.

    My purpose is it's a phone, well and my alarm clock.

    I didn't unplug or disconnect my landline nightly when I had one, why would I shut my phone off now? If there's an emergency I expect my phone to allow my family to contact me.

    Editing this to add the info I keep email and social media notifications silent, I don't need my phone alerting me over a 100 times a day for pointless crap I can check whenever I pick my phone up. I only care about call/text alerts.

    I leave mine on, normally charging. My do not disturb is automatically set to be on from 11p to 5a. Only an important notification would make it through, basically a call from immediately family that may need me.

    I agree with you on those points.

    I don't. I see no reason to turn it off at night.

    I don't. It's my only p phone. I don't have a landline, so I need to keep it on in case of family emergency.

    I shut my phone down at night, I have a landline and don't need to use it for an alarm clock. I also shut down my computer every night.

    I was right. We have totally different purposes.

    On ALL the time. DND at night with only calls allowed. How else can some one reach you in case of emergency?

    I suppose if I had any skills that would be useful to someone with an emergency at 3 a.m. I'd consider leaving my phone on. I don't have such skills. My family knows that when I go to bed I will be out of touch till I get up. My family is bright enough to call an ambulance, the fire department, or the police if they have a 3 a.m. emergency. Those phone calls might help them. A phone call to the old guy wouldn't really help at all.

    I guess that works if you don't care about knowing something bad happened to a loved one until after you have your breakfast.

    Not me, I would want to know right away and be where they are at. Just saying...

    This.

    You never know when somebody could need something as simple as a ride or a conversation because they are considering something they should not. At this point, my phone has never rung through at an odd hour, but....
