kid XXX, 20 Dec 2010i think i'm gonna charge the phone when it reaches 50%-20&,is it good..??another thing,do ... moreYes, it's still fine - 20% - or you can use the capacity until it drains to its critical capacity, some say it is 5% left when it reached its critical capacity. If you let the battery thru its critical capacity, it needs about half an hour after you plug the charger to start charging.
PS. You also asked about the latest firmware, I think it is R1HA035 if I remember correct, there was the newer one R1HA036, but later SE has removed it from their site. Sorry if this info might be incorrect or already outdated.

kid XXX, 20 Dec 2010so,wht do u mean is charge the phone every time it reaches 50%..??Yes, for initial charge purpose only, after that is up to you when you decide to charge the battery, coz after a proper initial charge the battery life should be much longer and you can get the benefit of it (use the phone longer until the battery goes empty).
kid XXX, 20 Dec 2010so anonymous, i must charge the phone when its 50% forever or only few weeks after bought the ... moreONE WEEK of initial charging would be enough to maximise the battery life. 50% to start recharging means @ medium usage eg 30 min call, 30 min internet, 1 hour gaming etc etc.. it takes a day to drain the battery 50%. Less is okay, but I said 50% so you remember to charge it frequently

This is useful to calibrate the battery so it can use the maximum capacity to the fullest. Lets say in this period of initial charging (first 3-7 weeks), do charging when the battery capacity is 50% left, stop charging when the battery is 100% full. No need to turn off the phone while charging, but I recommend to restart the phone every day.
Sony Ericsson phones use both GSM and 3G networks when you select GSM/3G networks. Between GSM and 3G, regarding voice call quality 3G is better because it supports AMR-WB technology aka HD Voice. Only two SE phones support this technology - Elm and Hazel. And overall 3G is faster in data transfering compare with GPRS/EDGE

~Charge your phone often. The battery lasts longer if you charge it frequently.
~If you are in an area with no coverage, your phone repeatedly scans for available networks. This consumes power. If you cannot move to an area with better coverage, turn off your phone temporarily.
~Turn off 3G, Bluetooth™ wireless technology, any active Wi-Fi™ connection, and GPS when you do not need these functions.
~Do not cover the phone antenna when you are engaged in a call.
