      How often would you say you charge your mobile phone?

      It all depends for me on how much I use it, if I am using it frequently I will need to charge my phone atleast once every 3 - 4 days however if I do not use it much once a week is usually the norm.

      Do you charge your mobile phone when the battery if fully drained or just as it's beeping?

      Mine is charged every time I'm at my desktop, even if it's full and as needed. I have an iPhone so I use it as an iPod also for bus/train journeys to university and walking to work. I also send and receive a fair amount of texts, IMs and emails so I guess that eats the battery a lot also.

      I have to charge mine every other day, unless I'm using it alot then its every day. Of course sometimes I forget and it dies in the middle of the night.

      Mine also depends on how I use it.
      If it was not so much in use, I could charge it every other day. If I would call or received a call, I need to charge it on that day to avoid having a low battery and been able to receive calls or make calls the same day.

      I charge my mobile phone once per three days.

      When I use it a lot, I regularly charge it daily.

      My work mobile is charged in the hands-free cradle and only ever gets low if I forget to turn it off over the weekend.
      Most people know to call me on my work phone during the day so my own phone is only turned on in the evening and lasts a week or more before needing a charge.

      I'm not naughty though! I always do my work before flipping the phone out for a quick text!

      Very annoying though, especially when you want a lift home! xD

      I charge my phone every week day. My job pretty much requires me to use it a lot. I have a solar battery charger though, so it doesn't eat my wallet when it comes to paying the electric bills. On the weekends, I pretty much charge it only once if needed.

      3-4 days; it used to last about a week and a half. But I think since it's over 3 years old, it's age is starting to take it's toll.
