    If the screen to the iphone is off but the unit is not turned off will wi fi still continue to drain the battery? )wi Fi turned on of course) Thanks.

    I don't think that it would have much of a noticable effect then.

    As said, not really. The phone goes into a low power mode, if you have it checking for mail it may activate it to do so, but thats all.

    And FYI, Wi-Fi is more energy efficient than Edge. But if you leave Wi-Fi on ALL the time, like at work for example, and you are not using it but actively using Edge for data then you will see a drain since it will keep hunting for networks.
