    Well, no because then he wouldn't have any data. I'm pretty sure there's no global wifi network.

    Whenever I use edge, it does noticeably use more battery. It doesn't drain it though. But the phone does get very hot. It's just the way it is for cellular data. If you used 3G speeds, then it would drain your battery even faster.

    Your battery may be "draining" quickly because its old/been used a lot. iPhone batteries can only be recharged 300-400 times before it loses 80% of its life. The only fix you can do for this is either buy a "third party" battery and replace it yourself, or buy one of those external battery packs.
