    If you're logged out then there's no reason you would, because you wouldnt be appearing online for any of your contacts.

    It would also be "Do notifications..." and not "Does notifications..." ;)

    I'd say it does, I keep mine turned off, since I have no reasons for it.

    Edit: if I'm losing 20% with notifications, I wonder how much battery life I'd lose if the thing had true multitasking?

    The battery is actually a real let down on the iPhone, all this breakthrough in processors and stuff surely there have to some breakthroughs with batteries soon.

    Thanks for the corrections :)

    Hope the new update (3.1) will give a boost to the battery life & hopefully it comes with a jailbreak by the dev. team.
