    Hi, on this phone if I have the gps switched on, but nothing is actually using it, ie. the gps symbol is not shown in the info bar. Does it use the battery?

    (I know this is a stupid question)

    No It's not... I keep GPS on at all times on my phone. It provides a better performance for most applications that require it. And it makes "wireless network" (wifi) works a lot better. Personally, I dont see any significant battery drain with GPS on.

    Rush, out of interest, how does having the GPS on make the Wifi better?
