charging battery for 1st time

How long do I have to charge the battery for the first time before I start using it? I've read the manual forwards and backwards and it doesn't mention how long I need to charge it for the very first time.

Re: charging battery for 1st time

i think the general rule is charge when it gets low or tells you and further into the battery's lifespan let it die completely and charge til its complete to get full use of the battery outta the box i played with hooked to the charger for an hour or so and it held for about 5 after unhooking it and then i returned it because well the  phone means well but just is packed with flaws .....but yeah no special charge instructions if you got any battery life use it until its low then rinse and repeat :smileywink:

This is what a verizon employee said:


Honestly, I charged mine until my LED notification lit up and my battery power was at 100%. Hope this helps you!
