    For the same reason the first thing I do when I buy new clothes is throw them in the wash.

    So fresh and so clean.

    The clothes in the wash makes sense but the phone is already fresh and clean when you get it :P

    You'd be surprised how many times I've heard people say that a factory reset fixed some issue they were experiencing. I'd rather do it right away than spend hours setting up my phone and decide I should have done a factory reset. No harm in doing it first thing, and it might just same you an issue or two, so I say why not?

    I posted a thread about a dysfunctional battery meter and someone replied that it's pretty common with the newer Motorola phones until you've cycled it a few times. He was right in my case, two cycles and my phone is metering correctly.

    Well I guess that technically that's what that term means, but I used it incorrectly.

    With lithium batteries you shouldn't run them all the way down, that's very bad for them. I just meant getting moderate use out of the battery and then completing a full charge, after doing that a couple times my phone was metering correctly.
