The 'full discharge' -> 'full charge' approach is a legacy of other battery types.
Doesn't apply to li-ion cells as Leon points out, but it was true some time ago in the past before these batteries become the status quo they are today (I've had nickel-cadmium powered phones before where it was required to perform these methods).

Although I've had manufacturer's guides telling me otherwise, this seems to point to the whole thing being little more than an urban myth and certainly not current for consumer devices today.
