Hey just wandering for all you people that has a Panasonic X400 how many times do you have to charge your phone? Why I am asking is because I have to charge mine 4 times a day.

Its all relative to what you are doing with your phone, but I would say you have a fault somewhere...

I was also using my phone today and as soon as I took it off the charger it needed to charge again, and when I looked at my phone before I went to sleep I looked and it was charging and I don't know what is wrong with the phone but I am getting annoyed with it.

But when I first got my phone after charging for 5 hours I accidentally turned it on but then I turned it off when I could, and then I charged it for a further 12 hours and then I took it off the charger, would that have effect on my phones battery charging?

This is an interesting question. Whenever you buy a phone handset, the sales droid always seems to recommend that it be charged overnight before using it. I know that this used to be the case with NiCAD batteries, but is it really necessary with Lithium Ion batteries?

If noone here has the technical knowledge to answer this, then I might try and do some research into it because I would be very interested to know the answer.

I read in the manual that I can charge it from 12-24 hours and I thought that I would charge it for 12 hours, when I accidentally turned the phon on, I actually stopped the time and put it back to 12 hours so I actually charged it for 17 hours.

You could... but you'll probably be told that its a hardware fault and to take it into the dealer you got it from.

And knowing the DSE here in Palmerston North, they'll just send it off to MFR.... who will hum and harr over whether its a user fault - or the phones (possibly battery). They should still resolve the problem still.
