Hiya...

My OH has just upgraded to the new Samsung Omnia on T-mobile. We have read the quick start quide and checked the internet, however there is no guidance on how long to charge this handset for?

Does anybody know?

All advice welcome! Many thanks!

Initially new batteries (all types) must be charged for 14 - 16 hours continuously. All batteries require a "break-in" period so don't be alarmed if your battery doesn't hold a full charge right away. A new battery may show false full charge as indicated on your phone or charger. Also the battery may not power up the phone because of low voltage. For the first 3 - 5 cycles please make sure to charge the battery fully and drain it fully before recharging. This will properly condition the battery and will ensure that it will operate at its maximum capacity. This is recommended for all cellular phone batteries. You can discharge most portable phones by unplugging the charger and leaving it turned on until completely discharged.

We did think that... but we just wanted to check as there is nothing worse than undercharging a new handset the first time you recieve it. What seems to be strange is that there is no charging symbol on the handset even when its switched on ( which we had to do in order to see if a charging symbol would be displayed) When turning the mains off, the phone makes a beep noise which is also the same noise it makes when you switch it on. We presume this would mean the phone is charging???
