Want the answers to questions about the iPhone? You'll find questions and answers here.
I was told i need to charge it for 20h straight before i even configure it. is this correct ?
No, no and no. Charge the iPhone when you decide to charge it. Connect the iPhone to the supplied Wall Charger with the supplied USB Cable. A full charge takes about 2 (two) hours sometimes. Or you can connect it to computer with the supplied USB cable, charging can sometimes take longer with computer, and often you need to keep computer active or it will stop charging.
Charging iPhones is very easy, when convienent for you, charge it. Most people charge their iPhones at night when they are asleep. This way the iPhone is fully charged when the day starts.
thanks ! ok but is there such a thing as first charge time ?
Yeah, I guess, it's the first time you charge it. But it is no more important than any of the other times that you are going to charge your iPhone. Since you seem to be ready to charge it now, connect it to power source and charge it. If you decide, you can even use your iPhone while you charge it. Enjoy.
I ran mine down till it shut down then charged it overnight. The battery seems ok considering I'm doing something on my phone all day long.
I just bought an iPhone 5 today. I only charged it for 2 hours for the first time. hehehee
