Or just download Trillian and use that instead, since that supports Facebook chat along with various other networks all in one app. tongue

I can't speak for Android, since I use an iPhone, but the iPhone version isn't heavy on the battery usage due to the way Apple's notification system works.

To be honest, I don't use facebook nearly enough to notice if it supports the combined inbox/chat. I rarely use either tongue
