    its like getting a text.. but think about it this way.. the more texts you get, the more your battery will drain.. SO if you have a load of apps that are constantly sending you push notifications, your battery will drain faster..

    Ok thanks, but it wont drain it as fast as fetch (if you had that on lets say every 15 mins). Unless you get like 50 emails a day

    Compared to what?

    Leaving the phone in standby, playing games, email set to fetch?

    Your phone is more or less constantly getting information from att when it is on, so I wouldn't think there would be a huge increase in battery usage.

    which is why I said it depends on how many applications that you have that have push enabled.. and how often those apps push through notifications. I can definitely tell you that if my sister has push AIM on her phone, her battery would die VERY quickly..

    Its more than just email, and thats where i guess you might be not understading. If you have Skype, IM, weather, calender, etc.. and some of them push through a bunch of notifications a day, then you could see a difference.
