    If someone wanted to drain their Treo's battery, what's the best way to do it?

    TIA

    Switch on bluetooth, I guess... The battery should be out in 4-6 hours.

    Maybe, remove SIM card and switch on?

    No clues how to do that safely outside the phone, if that is your question.

    Leave the phone "ON" in a place where there is no signal.
    Me = Nokia 5170/Palm III > Kyocera 6035 > Treo 600 > Treo 650 > Treo 700p > Treo 755p > Treo Pro > Palm Pre

    Wife = Treo 600 > Treo 650 > Treo 755p > Palm Centro > Palm Pixi

    why would you want to do that? its not good for this type of battery. if you completely drain a lithium ion battery, its lifespan shortens

    I have my bluetooth on 24/7 and my battery last me alot longer than 4-6 hours. Infact I charge it every other day or so. I spend about 2 cumulative hours on the phone each day.

    Same here:

    BT on 24/7
    Phone on 9am - 11pm

    battery Life (GSM) > 7 days.

    Interesting note, if you are not going to use your device for a while, it's best to leave battery half charged. A full discharge is recommeded about every 30 charges for calibration purposes. It's also oft recommended to do 4 complete discharges / charges with a brand new battery:

    I do a desktop cradle charge once a week. It gets a few boosts whenever placed in cradle in car. I let it die completely last day of each quarter.

    That is simply not possible as I don't live in the US! I have a 650 GSM
