A Battery Question
Jeremy Sikora(sp?) had said: Be sure to go through at least one charge cycle per month (charging the battery to 100% and then completely running it down).
Does COMPLETELY RUN DOWN mean until you get a 20% ,or a 10% warning, or better yet when you see a black back screen with an empty battery emblem w/ a plug being actively plugged into the wall below the picture?
I usually plug it in before even a warning pops up. The other night however, I went to wake the phone and what I got was the black screen w/ the elec. plug beneath it.
Is this what is meant by "totally run down"?

When I ran it totally down it was an accident. The phone had not warned me and I always notice at what level the battery indicator is.... and it wasn't super low like that. I could've missed it, but I don't think I did. Has anyone ever heard of that?--the iPhone battery indicator being 'off the mark' like I describe here?

I was wondering if the recharge cycle count (number of recharges the battery will accept b4 it gives up the ghost) that IS the lifespan of the iPhone battery
included 'partial' charges--(like from 30% upward) towards that total batt. rechrg cycle count? What's the # anyway, like 150 cycles or something?
