    Currently I have Intelliscreen installed but with only the Calendar options displaying on my lockscreen. Now because I don't have a data plan, none of the other features (mail, sports, news etc.) would update without be being connected to wi-fi.

    Now I've heard the main gripe with Intelliscreen is its battery consumption and mine currently is pretty decent but I'm wondering if Intelliscreen would consume more battery if I threw on the news feature onto Intelliscreen's second page for when I do connect to wi-fi? Like would the news feature somehow drain the battery by constantly looking for a connection to update with or would it not make a difference? Same with sports?

    Thanks.

    The biggest battery sink right now for me is push email. Hands down, that is the biggest sink.

    I have intelliscreen on, and I dont see much difference.

    I also don't see a difference with it activated. But I am still on the free trial version fyi
