Default Blackberry 8820 WIFI Question

Please Login to Remove!

For those of you that have 8820's, do you leave the WiFi on always, or just when you get to a WiFi connection? I'm sure there are battery drain issues with leaving the WiFi on, however, I don't yet know how much yet because I just got my 8820 today.
Another thing, wow, this thing is much bigger in my hands than my very comfortable Curve. Gonna take some getting use to.

I would recommend turning it off when not in use. I am almost positive it will have a significant effect on battery life.

I leave mine on during the day. I do see a noticeable difference in battery consumption but mine goes on charger each night.
