    Yes.

    It will periodically scan for wifi connections with the wifi left turned on, which might drain the battery slightly, but if there is no available wifi it will just use the 3G.

    Now I'm new to cell phones having wi-fi, because my last blackberry didn't. I'm guessing wi-fi is just used for web surfing and sending/receiving emails, correct? I'm asking because I noticed that while wi-fi was turned on last night, I didn't receive any text messages or notifications. I didn't receive anything until I turned off wi-fi and was using 3G again.

    If I were you, well if I was me, or anyone for that matter, Id leave em all off until you are ready to use them. Battery. All about the battery. One of my 7 screens has all the widget/shortcut thingys to turn on and off GPS/WIFI/3G/Airplane Mode. I just use them as necessary. Will save loads of battery.
