    I want to know if my understanding about Li-ion batteries used in cell phones is correct. Please dispute or validated the following:

    Li-ion batteries should be fully charged before first using them in a cell phone.

    Li-ion batteries do not store a memory, so there's no need to fully charge/discharge them every time

    Li-ion batteries cannot be overcharged while charging in a cell phone because the cell phone automatically shuts down the charging when the voltage reaches the limits of the battery.

    It shouldn't matter since there is no need to 'condition' these batteries

    True - in fact discharging them constantly puts stress on them and will degrade the battery faster

    Li-ion batteries cannot be overcharged while charging in a cell phone because the cell phone automatically shuts down the charging when the voltage reaches the limits of the battery.
    True - all cell phones have safety mechanisms built in to not overcharge a battery.
