Pardon the pun in the title, it was not intentional.
Every mobile provider needs a number that simply plays a tone, or perhaps some kind of music in a loop. When you purchase a new phone, it comes with 1/4 charge .. since some batteries still have a memory, you need to wear down the battery prior to its (second) charge cycle.
Every provider in the world should provide a number to do this toll free. The best way to wear down a phone is to call. I bought a new LG today and my only recourse was to play this stupid (but Java intense) skateboard game until my unit began to complain about the battery level.
You would think the carriers would see this logic and the opportunity to advertise? I’d happily put mine on speaker just to hear the battery dying beep and finally go to bed knowing my phone was charging for the next day.
