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

thanks for your reply. but i still want to know when we listen to mp3 hits on phone whethet same amount of battery is consumed on listening it on headphone and loudspeaker or whether there is difference??
my nokia handbook has not described that we have to charge it for 12 hours.... during my first charging it was showing battery full in 2 hours. do we have to charge it for 12 hours????

yeah i know abt the crap that shopkeepers tell you abt initial charging...first learn abt how Li-ion/poly batteries work...the initial charging was true in case of older batteries. modern Li-ion batteries comes with auto power off..so as soon as the battery is full its cuts off the power.
another thing abt Li-ion is that its not wise to fully drain it..its always best(for performance and life) to charge it before its reaches below 33%. older Ni based batteries gave best result when charged after getting fully drained...but for li-ion its different.
Even with the newest of batteries, you must still give them a 100% complete charge the first time. It may not require a full 24 hour period, but at least 12-14 hours (however 24 hours is recommended by most manufacturers). This is due to the chemicals in the battery and the reactions of those chemicals during their first charge. The initial charge will directly affect the capacity of the battery. Not fully charging the first time can lead to the battery prematurely going bad or giving less and less talk time/standby time.
From personal experience, I haven't noticed much of a decrease in battery life from a 12 hour charge vs a 24 hour charge. But batteries I have only given a 3 or 4 hour charge initially have had a 30-40% decrease in capacity over the course of about 6 months.

the guy who was saying 2 days usage battery with 1.5hrs talktime and 2 hours of music.......
whether you listen to the music on headphone or on the loudspeaker. did you use any camera?
i bought the cell yesterday but my battery backup is not proving to be enough. i charged my phone to the fullest yesterday. till this time i have listened to 1 hr and 50min of music. 1 hr. on loudspeaker, 50 min on headphone, took 10-15 pictures using camera, 5-10 min talktime, 10mb bluetooth transfer, 20 min of gaming only and my battery is showing 2 out of 4 lines in just 12 hours of usage. what can be the possible problem? can it be problem with the battery or set? or this usage is alright... please do reply
Can someone please explain that what difference does it make that it is Class 10 and not Class 32?
