Congratulations on the new phone.

You should keep your phone on the charger until it is fully charged. You can either leave the device on (during the day) or turn it off (at night when sleeping) as it will not affect the charging process.

I would just charge the device until it was full. The battery should already have a charge on it when you bought the device.

If you want to leave it on for longer, that will not harm the battery.

Esperoni is correct.  You can't over-charge a BlackBerry battery, but typically you should see a full charge within 2-3 hours.
