    From the Incredible forum:

    Note:

    Further reading suggests that if you do a lot of Facebook, MySpace, or Twitter (I do NONE of that crap), then you might see a difference in not getting updates as timely.

    Thought I share with my Eris brethren (ans sisthern).

    Found another problem: IM programs. They don't seem to work with that setting disabled.

    Update: IM programs do work, but you may get occasional disconnects. The program apparently thinks the connection was lost.

    I do not see the "Always on Data". M option says "Data Roaming" is this the same thing?

    As i always said, turn off the mobile web when youre not using it and you will never have issues with battery life. If you are on the web all day then you need another solution as no phone can be that active all day without being plugged in.. With the web on for an hour a day I can get 24 hours with normal usage between texts and calls.. If you play with the phone all day get some spare batteries! lol!
