    Should i leave my wifi turned on when not using it or not? Will it help me save battery if its off?

    Thanks!

    You should obviously leave your WiFi turned on when you're using WiFi, otherwise you wouldn't be able to use WiFi.

    You should leave it on as long as you have a safe wifi connection, it saves battery since the phone data is connecting from like 20 feet instead of miles and miles , where the towers are , I always have and I think my battery last longer the way

    What he meant was - will it save battery life if the phone is sitting idle to have wifi on.

    For my Evo, I would see DRASTIC improvement over night when leaving wifi on, since it wouldn't be polling for sprints network.

    Is this the same for iPhone, or is it better to turn off wifi when the phone is not in use?

    No. Turning off wifi makes no difference while idle.
