    it's about the same, you're looking at a 10-20 percent drainage per hour with 1x or evdo on, respectively. The fact of the matter is whilst idle the device still handles the signal and still makes data processes as if it were actually in use, meaning the drainage while in use as compared to idle is relatively the same. Though you can use more power by being data heavy while the display is on and phone is in use, there is still a standard level of drainage per hour whether idle or not while data is enabled.

    COULD YOU TELL US WHAT APP IS THIS? Very interesting!
