Charging the iPhone4 while turned off . . possible or not?
I've read somewhere that you can't charge the iPhone4 while it's powered off. Is this true? Does the iPhone4 have to be powered on while charging?
I have a habit of completely turning off my phone (currently a blackberry) overnight when charging and plan to do the same with my iPhone

If you are not wanting things to come through you can just turn the sound off so you don't hear anything or putthe device in airplane mode.

I plug my phone in first and then power it down. For a brief period of time, it shows the charge/battery picture and then nothing. It doesn't receive calls or text, no ringing/vibrating, nothing. So, I'm pretty sure its off at this point and in the morning I have to push the power button and wait for it to turn on (Apple logo, etc). So, I guess the point I'm trying to make is I think the key is to plug the phone in FIRST and then power down if you want it off while charging.
