Thread: Good or Bad
01-18-2010, 08:21 AM #1Good or Bad
Hello, this is a nice forums for iTouches and iPhones. =D
Anyways, I was wondering do you guys think its good or bad to what I been doing lately?:
Ever since I jailbroke my new iTouch 3rd Gen... I only keep it on lock. I only shut it off completely before I got to sleep.
When its on lock, doesn't it still heat up my battery?

Welcome to MMi
I don't think what your doing is bad. I only completely shut off my iPhone once a week or when I install something new. As for your battery, you should be fine. Unless you notice it getting hot... Is it?

It's not getting hot or anything. I was just wondering was it bad for the iPod itself to be on lock mode 24/7? lol

Welcome to MMi!
I shut my phone off about once a week or when I think about it.

In a month!!! Wow.
Maybe Im over reacting worrying about the life it will live, you know: For it to go off and NEVER come back on...
