    this brings me to a question no one has answered on another forum I'm on. Theres a program for wifi that enables it while sleeping or whatever. It's called wi-fi battery saver.

    "several users have reported that keeping WIFI active while the phone is sleeping reduces battery power consumptions. This applicattion helps adjust this setting without navigated through the settings"

    I've found it to be quite true as it's saved quite a bit of my battery while im at work vs before when I didn't have it. How does having wifi enabled help save battery time?
    Android does where iPhone doesn't. Droid can where Backflip shouldn't

    If you have a strong wifi signal and you have apps that synchronize or download data frequently (such as a news reader) it's conceivable that you will save battery compared to relying on the cell phone network when the signal is weak and unreliable.
