Is it OK to leave GPRS connection open?

Hello,

I have a midlet that makes occassional contact with a server via GPRS.

For each contact, I've noticed quicker performance if I leave the httpconnection open all the time (so only close it when the midlet exits).

But I'm wondering if this is good practice, or if anyone has any words of warning, etc?

Cheers,
James
