    "RTC"? If you mean "Real Time Clock", phones are always connected to a network for timekeeping, and have flash for NVMEM, so they don't need it.

    WATCH WHAT YOU SAY. phones are NOT ALWAYS connected to a network. it's inconvenient to redo the clock on it everytime you take the battery out,when there's no network connection to update it,that's why they need a clock battery. are you predjiduce of phones that don't have service anymore ?, that's how matrix people are. rtc batteries are kind of cool, cuz makes the device "hold it's breath" while off.
    computers have them, so should phones.

    RTC batteries were designed to be used in computers, not cell phones. A cell phone won't suddenly stop working because the clock/calender isn't up to date. I have more than one cell phone that easily updates the date/time when it connects to WiFi despite that fact they haven't had a SIM card installed or been used for phone calls in over a year. This is not a needed feature in a cell phone.

    There is no need for you to ask the same question in multiple cell phone forums. Your question was also asked and answered in another cell phone forum and the answer still hasn't changed.
