    Under the WiFi settings "Network Notification - Notify me when a network is available" If checked, I know that it will continuously check for open networks when out. Personally, I forget to turn my WiFi off immediately most of the time when I leave the house and may remember later.

    If this is unchecked, does it help save battery life by keeping the phone from searching for networks?
