I'd be interested.  Alarm during suspend has been an issue for me.
I've been meaning to investigate it, but I suppose I was hoping
someone else would do it first.  So I'm very grateful to Mr Howlett

 Exactly right. My understanding is this:

 Nokia devices (phones and stand-alone chargers) will not charge
 non-Nokia batteries, most likely because they can't be sure they have
 the correct charging parameters.

 Most after-market or no-name brands of Nokia-compatible chargers don't
 test the make of the battery, most likely because adding the capability
 to perform this test would add to the cost of the charger.


 * You can use a Nokia or Nokia-compatible BL-4C, BL-5C, or BL-6C in the Neo

 * You can charge the Neo battery in a Nokia-compatible charger that is
 not Nokia branded

 * You can NOT charge the Neo battery in a Nokia branded phone or charger


Thanks for this helpfully complete characterization.
Do you happen to know if a Nokia battery (such as the BL-5c) will
charge in the FreeRunner?

I intend to buy a FreeRunner.  This will be my first time owning a
cell phone, though.
My service plan is offered through my university by Cincinnati Bell
Wireless, and includes a free phone.  Can I expect that removing the
SIM card from the free phone and placing it in the FreeRunner will
work?  (IE, allow calls and SMS.  I'd do any data over wifi.)
