    I shut it off overnight to avoid getting any spurious calls. I leave the ringer on, as I use the alarm.

    Shut it off whenever not needing the phone. The PDA part is always on, only the phone part turns off.

    turn it off/on at least once a day so your SIM can check against the current network profile to make sure its updated. If you leave it on long enough you'll eventually start to get delayed voicemails and it may get to the point of no registration on the network and incoming calls will go straight to voicemail w/o ringing. No need to leave it off for a specific time, just off and back on again.

    Not the end of the world if you miss a day or two, but its a good habit to get into

    Is that a fact? Interesting if it's true. I believe CDMA phones need to dial a certain phone number to initiate a similar action.

    What you say is true about CDMA phones. In fact, when travelling Verizon recommends that you dial this number (I forget the #) to update your PRL. (Preferred Roaming List).

    I had heard the same thing about turning it off once a day, too. So I turn it off, do a soft reset to clear things out, and then turn it back on. Seems to be keeping everything running optimally.

    Anything running any version of windows benefits from a periodic and regular reboot.

    Can't tell you how many ppl i see every day that have crazy call drops, late voicemails, etc that is fixed by a simple power off/on.
