Does leaving a cell phone on charge all the time weaken the batter, and why?

If I leave my cell phone with the charger plugged in all the time, would this weaken the batter, and why? I've heard that you should only charge the cell phone when you receive a 'battery low' message and leave it off the charger at other times?

The cell phone has got a Li-Ion battery.
