    Ok so lately ( I think due to some AT&T problems) I have been having horrible reception in my dorm and less than average reception around my campus and i was wondering if the phone is constantly checking for service is that something that will have a negative affect on battery life? My battery life is fine now, it could be better i guess but im not complaining, im just curious about if constantly having 'No Service" would have a negative affect on my battery's performance. Thanks

    In my experience, I want to say that's true. I have pretty good reception at my apartment, and my battery life is very decent. But when I stay over at my gf's house, where I'm battling between Edge/3G, most of the time ends up on Edge, my battery drains faster.
