    Does anyone know of it takes more power to browse using wifi than using the network? I'm with Verizon.

    DO you have a strong signal?

    I personally seem to think Wifi is a little better on battery, but I've never browsed for an hour on network and then the next hour on Wifi, or anything like that to test.

    most articles i have read indicate you will get better battery life with WIFI and i can easily see it in my own findings when at home on wifi and driving around and at work off wifi

    if you are sitting right next to a tower and have an incredible 3G signal it might be a closer battle, most people arent setup like that
