    So i just found how to do IM without texts, I bet this is widely known, but i have a few questions. When i lock my iPhone, does it keep sending/receiving data? I know it keeps you signed on cuz i tested it, but does it keep moving data, or just save any IM's you get and then display them when you sign back on?

    Nope. Connection's terminated when you lock your phone.

    Thats what i thought, however it doesn't log me off. I tested it by putting up an away message on my desktop, then signing in on the iPhone, then locking the iPhone, but i was still available, my away message didn't come back like it does when i sign off from the second source.

    It does stay connected when you lock it, but i don't even think it stays connected for over a minute even.

    So no, it isn't possible. You have to change a setting in settings to have the screen never turning off unless you press the sleep button, causing it to stay connected.*

    *Battery drain..

    I don't want it to stay on, i just want to know if i get logged off when i put it to sleep, or if i can just unlock my phone and be right back where i was, logged in and with IM's saved or not.

    i think you get disconnected the minute you lock iPhone.. just sign off manually, takes only 2 seconds then re-log in

    really not hard.
