well, it's been a week since am using this phone now so can give idea about it's battery backup. well, it's giving me a backup of 2 and half days now with normal usage. My normal usage includes 2 hours of talktime, sending 100 messages and around 15 mins of music. That's definitely good battery backup.
Don't be worried about the backup man. Battery discharges very very soon if you listen to music with the speaker's. Try with the headphones and let us know your feedback.
There are not many negatives with this phone. It's an excellent device for it's price. Overall am very happy and have no complains as of now.

Dude there's no such thing such as an initial charging for Li-ion batteries.
Even i have read the same links that Rockr posted due to all the discussion about it here.
By the way, you were reading this person's reply on this page weren't you? http://forums.cnet.com/5208-75...eadID=115543
Just read the links posted previous to this post, you will be able to see for yourself.
I don't know why my whole post is not visible, i had given a lot of links, but just read this one http://vidmar.net/weblog/archi.../11/308.aspx Hopefully it will clear your mind, the links at the bottom of the page were the ones i had posted separately...
I think you were bent upon the idea because of the one bloke on cnet forums who had said this same thing of 12 hr charging. Please be advised there is no proof of it doing any good than harm.

BTW a correction(just for sake of true info) you cant overcharge new Li batteries coz of the auto power off...so battery wont be damaged, but your phone will be damaged if you plug it to power supply for a long time.

Anonymous, 06 Aug 2009hi pls anyone tell me antivirus for this handset.You do not need an antivirus for this phone. It is not a symbian s60 phone, but is based on the s40 5th edition interface which does not need an antivirus.
And there is no such thing such as an 'initial charging' mentioned anywhere in any user manual from Nokia or elsewhere. Just charge it, when it reaches full, disconnect it, which is the wise thing to do.
But be sure to charge to full before using for the first time.

A 12 hour charge for a battery which charges to its full capacity in 3-4 hrs will be called an 'overcharge' which is always harmful for the battery.
But the charging current is cut off as soon as the battery reaches the desired potential or else your battery, along with your new phone, would blow to pieces after your 'initial charge'! :D... Do not believe the crap that some shopkeepers are used to saying from the prehistoric era. :P
