Battery Charging

I was wondering if there is a right way and a wrong way to charge the phone battery. Should the phone be powered off when charging or is it OK to just plug in the charger at any time . I recently charged the phone and the clock appeared on the screen and the screen does not blank out during this process. Is there a way to charge so that the only thing you see on the screen is the battery charge indicator.

Thanks

Re: Battery Charging

There really is no right or wrong way. I have never in my years powered off my BB to charge (but then I also never power it off anyway). I leave it powered to charge.

 

The clock during the charge is normal, and is changeable if you look at your clock options.

 

There is not a 'charge indicator' only screen option, either.

 

Here are some good charging tips.
