Default charging question

I have always been told its not good for a cell phone's battery if you always charge it without letting it
Compleatly drain first. Is this true for the bold battery and if so at what percentage is it best to charge
So you don't lose any info and get max life out of the battery

I have never heard of that, I just charge my phone whenever I need to and take it out immediately when it is fully charged.

I have had phones where I chaged them every night when I spelt no matter how low the battery was
And after a good 4 or 5 months of doin that my battery wouldn't last as long. When I got the phone
It would last like 2 or 3 days but then it go to the point where it would barely last one day

That was pretty much true of the older NiCd batteries of the early '90s... but not so much true for the current set of NiMh batteries. The new NiMh and even newer L-Ion batteries have very little "memory effect", and there is virtually no problem "topping them off" ever day/night.
