1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    working on battery saving ideas. I understand that wifi takes less juice than 3g/4g. I assume that if I turn off 3g/4g and have wifi on - I can still receive telephone calls because I think I read somewhere that voice is 2g and that's always on. Correct?

    But what about text messaging? Can I send/receive texts with 3g/4g off and wifi on?

    If I have both wifi and 3g/4g on - does data default to wifi thus less power usage?

    Any ideas here?

    Thanks.

    SMS text messaging will work but for MMS (picture, audio, video) you will need data enabled.
