When a device is paired with the phone, and both units are on, with the link functioning, yes thats when the most power will be used...
If you have your bluetooth radio turned on in the phone settings, (the bluetooth icon on the home screen) then yes, the phone will be using more power than with it off. Not mearly as much as if say you have a headset or GPS in use, but still some more, as the phone is still broadcasting a bluetooth signal.
To answer your last question, if Bluetooth is turned on in phone settings, ready to be used, the blue LED will NOT flash, it only flashes when data is being transferred.
I leave mine on all the time, because I charge my device in the car and every night at home. If I were on a long trip without a recharge in sight.. I would turn the option off to conserve power.
