I use my bluetooth headset, but when I'm not using it, I like to keep the bluetooth off to conserve battery. What happens is when I put the phone in the dock (the one included with the headset) the bluetooth will turn on even if I have it off on my phone. Any way to stop that from happening? :confused:

You dont save much power at all when turning bluetooth off. Both the phone and headset radios go into a standby mode when not used. Then when a call comes in the phone seeks and wakes up the headset.

seems like the power goes down a lot fast when bluetooth is on...maybe its just me and I watch my iphone 24/7, and yes that means I never take my eyes off it.

It's superficial at best. I leave mine on all the time and my battery usually lasts like two days.
