    After using Blazer to go online, is it necessary to go to Preferences, then Network, to "disconnect"? Will doing so preserve battery life? If I don't disconnect, will remaining online slow other applications I use?
    Thanks for your input!

    You might use a bit more battery than otherwise, but the 755p will drop the data connection if it's been idle a while. I don't remember how long "a while" is but I get the sense that it's about an hour.

    If you are in an area where reception is questionable or weak, then disconnecting will help the battery a bit. In a good signal area, battery use will be a bit higher than not being connected, but not substantially so. Remaining on line does not slow the device down.

    I use this program to prevent a connection and turn my phone on and off at regular intervals.. Its well worth its price.
