my phone is tempermental with the alarm- i usually leave it on in case i get any messages etc during the night, and my alarm seems to go off properly if i leave the phone on.

Nope, I just leave it on silent. But I do that in the day anyway.

I usually have it on all day every day, and charge it every 2-3 nights.

I usually switch it off. I don't want to get woken up by random calls and messages in the middle of the night, and leaving it on drains the battery faster. I do use it for my alarm, but it comes on anyway My boyfriend leaves his on and I always wonder why when he gets 3am calls from completely drunken friends who don't even realise they're calling him!

No.. because I rarely get calls or texts in the nightime, and when I do, they're usually from the people who I wanna hear from anyway, even if it wakes me up.

I leave mine off, cos it never rings anyway and I could probably leave it off during the day too.

Same here, and you never know when someone might desperately need you.

The question in the poll is odd - "do you keep it switched off"

"Do you keep it switched on would be better.

Precisely! Also, I have a friend online who always talks about how the guy she likes calls her up at 3AM etc to chat randomly, and I'd never miss a chance to talk randomly!

True, but I have my landline by my bed - I know that in real emergencies, people would call that. Mobile calls and messages can generally wait til morning. (Although I do tend to keep it switched on at night if I'm away from home and my mum's here on her own, just in case of emergency).
