    Trust me, I've been called worse by people who did intend to offend. A mistake like that is no problem.

    but then again now that i think of it my work pushed my WIFI settings to my phone via location. they use Amtel mdm to push profiles and stuff to my phone based on my location...so maybe thats why my battery is in good shape

    Not sure I understand your statement? You're saying leaving wifi on runs down battery life? More than a cell data transmission? I suspect most people's experiences would not be the same. My battery certainly runs down faster on cell than on wifi and I live in a 4g area.with good coverage almost everywhere I am/go. Guessing your second post is where you're reconsidering that?

    Interesting tatoo. Yours?

    I mean regardless of the cellular data, leaving wifi on and searching in the background uses more battery life when its not connected. But then again, i am almost OCD aware of my battery levels at all times. When you compare cell data and wifi head to head - i would bet wifi wins that bet every time but leaving wifi on and searching in the background i notice a difference.

    I'm not sure how it is even possible to have both connected. I'm not sure what you mean by on and searching, if, it is different than just having it in the background and allowing it to switch to know networks when it finds them...

    Theyre not both connected, but like you said, in the background searching. That constant search or ping to check if a WIFI network is available is actually using battery...some phones more some less
