iphone data flow
i'm trying to see if i want to switch from android to iphone so i'm trying to figure out if the iphone can do what i need.
i'm just wondering if there's a way for me to turn off "data" flow on iphone while leaving voice and text message flow on. not to turn any flow completely like "airplane" mode. on my android i can turn off data flow like email and facebook updates and such with one switch while keeping voice and text message flowing. it saves me battery when i don't need to use them.
and if anyone has had the droid incredible, how much longer does the iphone battery last? one of my main problems is that my battery runs low quicker than i want it. i don't want to see 50% battery in just 6 hours.
does email on iphone employ push method? it's kind of nice getting email instantaneously. i've heard from other users that email is refreshed on certain time intervals and not instant.
thanks for any help.

Its not so much as turning it off, what you do is disable the push notifications, so basically if you dont go into that program and manually reload it (e.g.: face book, e-mails, or apps) You wont get a vib, or sound from your home screen or phone call. You can also disable the pop ups so you dont get that small display window.

Now, I easily get 16 - 18 hours of battery life before I need to charge. Most nights, I put my phone on the charger with a fantastic 40% battery life left I'm happy with my i4.
great. sounds like the batter is amazing.
data flow switch: check
battery life: check
now i just need to find out if i can use the free google navigator on there and i'm set. if not... that's something to consider cause i do use it quite often. it's so handy.

battery life is amazing...i have a friend with an Incredible and he is routinely jealous of my battery life. the other day at work (unplugged since 4:45am), i ran pandora literally ALL day from about 6:30 am till around 5 pm with only a break for lunch....after I went out for dinner and got home around 9pm, I still had about 35%....simply amazing if you ask me.
as for the data thing, no need for that...the battery will last without having to do stuff like that
