    I need to figure out what is causing my usage time to constantly go up with standby.

    You don't have to, just remember to Force close out of the app every time you are done using it.

    what if i turn my pushing on icloud off, and everything else to manual..will icloud still sync my contact even if my icloud email isn't on fetch or push

    what exactly is push? i see it as its constantly checking and would waste more battery

    I use Fetch 15mins. Since updating to iCloud from MobileMe, Push never seems to work on my iOS devices for some reason. Yet on my other phone it's set to Push and does work, so not sure wats going on. But fetch works grand anyway so no hassles.

    ----------


    Doesn't Push just work like a phone call?

    It just means the email is pushed to your phone straight away rather later when you poll (Fetch) new mail. Push doesn't require the phone to be constantly polling, otherwise your phone would be just constantly Fetching and thereby there would be no need for them to Push anything!!! I just made my brain ache!
