I usually charge mine using the plug.

I voted other. I charge it by plugging the charger into an extension, which is in turn plugged into the wall.

I sort of do both - but mainly the wall.

When I am at work, and I need to charge my phone, I will take the USB cable with me to work and charge it from the computer. This usually happens when I come home on lunch and see that my battery is now down to 40% or so. I have a battery which isn't holding the charge as much as it would normally so, I am waiting out my contract expiration before I go invest anymore on this phone. :)

I do make it a point though to charge my phone at night on the wall regardless of how charged it is.

Usually the wall, since the USB methood charge is a little slower.

Needs more options.

I charge my iPhone 90% of the time using my iMac when it sits in the dock (and it sitting there pretty much all the time when I'm not using it and sit at the desk I don't care about the speed of charging - it's just steady charging), but I fairly often use my travel battery when on the go (Mac charged with a cable) or the wall - mainly when I'm in a hurry, because it's so much faster or when I lay in the bed and want to use my phone for some extended use still before sleeping/it's below a certain threshold of charge.

Plug in the wall while I'm in bed. The plug is literally right beside my bed so I can use my phone while it's charging and I'm meant to be sleeping.

I have a wall socket for the iPad (really like the battery life but takes a good while to fully charge!), hi power usb port for the phone and a usb 11000 mah portable charger for charging on the move (I take the train a lot and it's not too heavy to carry about in my coat and can charge the phone and ipad many times over I'm caught short!).

I'm a developer so my phone is often plugged into the PC for the whole day when working.

Wall if it avalable or usb via computer.
Or micro usb via car charger if i am on the road and it needs a top up.
Lots of phones in my house so you look for charging options.
