    Default Who actually turns off their iPhone?

    I never turn it off. Is that a bad thing?

    I have owned every generation of iPhone to date and I rarely turned any of them off. I don't think you have too.

    I've has my iPad for 2yrs and never turn it off. I just got my first iPhone4S in Nov. and I turned it off once just because lol. I don't plan on turning it off unless I'm in a situation that requires I do so, other than that it'll stay on "stand by" during the night, plus I rely on it for my daily alarm

    I turn it on airplane mode overnight, and will restart every week. I only turn it completely off when I am installing a zagg. I also kill it dead most of the time for charging, so it'll be off then for a little while too.

    Sure you can. Plug it in the charger and turn it off. It'll work.

    This is bad for li-ion batteries. You can run them down occasionally to make sure that the OS is calibrated to the battery capacity, but running li-ion batteries down to empty all the time decreases its lifespan.

    I turn mine off once a week. I've. Had previous iPhones that would go a little wonky if I didn't turn if off about once a week.

    I turn my phone off about once every couple days, not for long, only about 30 minutes. The iPad doesn't get turned off too often though, maybe I will tonight.

    I usually turn it off at night. I probably shouldn't since it's my only phone, but I don't like having any distractions.

    I never turn mine off. Although when I had my Blackberries I had them set to shut off late at night and turn on before I woke up.

    I have no signal at work and I work 12 hour shifts so I turn it off when I'm there. Anyone who keeps their phone on with no signal will come back to a dead phone at the end of the shift. If you keep your phone on in dead zones for long periods of time it seems to me that you're shortening the long term battery life of a phone.

    you could just put it in airplane mode if you wanted to use other non-data functions like music, etc..
