I was concerned about the idle usage of Orbot myself when I originally
installed it and took some measurements. I decided that I couldn't
leave it turned on permanently because it was sucking up too much
bandwidth. I only get 500MB/month on my phone plan. Is it going to be
possible to significantly reduce the idle bandwidth usage?
