Default Battery Charge time

Please Login to Remove!

Hi, I have just bought a 8900 Curve and was told by the merchant that I needed to charge the BB for 16 hours or so prior to using.
It has been charging for about 2 hours but now the green light is on which I assume means it is fully charged.
Is this normal?

Welcome to the forums.

Please read this for some good information:
Maximum Battery Life - BlackBerryFAQ

You don't need to break the battery in, however, it's good practice to charge the device often.

Also, the green light is most likely the coverage indicator.
