    I'm not sure but I've had it off since day one and I still get all my emails, calendar, weather, facebook, etc. in sync like normal.

    It turns data off after a certain period.. maybe 10-15 minutes. When you turn the screen on, the data connection re-establishes. It saves a HUGE amount of battery. However if you're depending on push notifications and emails coming through right away, dont use this option because you wont get that stuff until you turn the screen on.

    I disabled it day 1 after seeing it recommended on an Android battery life thread. I got my TBolt the last week in March and so far it has NEVER died on me during the day and I usually have it unplugged from 7:30AM to 11PM. I do use Phone Info to keep it on 3g only unless I need to download something or stream video.

    My phone always lasts all day as well, I unplug it around 7:30 and it too lasts until 11PM ranging from 20-40% remaining.

    I use Juice Defender, free version and I think when off charger it does same thing and works real well, on extended battery I get 33 hrs out of one charge.

    I think that is where Juice Defender does work differently, turns off but emails seem to come in all day.

    I don't think I've ever even enabled "always on mobile data" and I've always gotten all my push notifications.

    As for juice defender, I've heard more evidence that it uses more battery. This is because instead of just staying connected to data (3g, 4G, or WiFi) it has to keep searching for a network again each time its "allowed" connect. I think ppl who say it improved with the app are experiencing the placebo effect.

    A good undervolted kernel such as bamf or leankernel extreme does WONDERS! Especially with the new radio!
