    I don't think so, but why would you not want it to?

    well it kills your battery to start charging it before its really low (under 15%)

    when we keep plugging our bb's into our computers and unplugging the battery is up and down

    Lithium Ion batteries are NOT effected by early charging. You dont need to wait until your battery is low to charge it. You are thinking of the older battery technology (Nickel Cadium) which required you to drain the battery before charging. Blackberrys use LI Batteries so you dont need to worry about the charging.

    "[FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif] A lithium-ion battery provides 300-500 discharge/charge cycles. The battery prefers a partial rather than a full discharge. Frequent full discharges should be avoided when possible. Instead, charge the battery more often or use a larger battery. There is no concern of memory when applying unscheduled charges. "
