Here's how I found it.
Long click main screen, click Custom Shortcut. Then Pick your Activity.
Next select either ADW Activities or LauncherPro Activities (both should be right near the top). I guess you have to have one of those 2.
Next find Data Manager. Second option from the bottom is Data Manager DataSaverMode.
Select that and you'll get the shortcut.
When you click the shortcut, you'll get this:
When Data Saver is on, your device will use less data by:
-Allowing you to queue media transfers for when you have a fast connection
-Turning off photo downloads in happenings and news
-Lowering image sizes in contacts
Check the box and try it out.
I felt like my battery lasted at least a couple hours longer than it would normally last with heavy usage.
Hi, I'm a Motorola Cliq/Dext modder (at M3). I was looking at the data_saver_mode setting, and actually I think I have enabled it manually, using sqlite and changing the value in the db. Your post indicates that, at least for your phone model, there is an activity dedicated to changing that setting. I have been unable to find it under the name "Data Manager"... I've looked at all the possible activities the phone offers me, even I tried DMservice activity, but no luck...
Would you mind starting the activity on your phone and see in the logcat what is the complete name of the apk/activity that is started? Maybe that could help me finding it on the CLiq (if it exist on our phone).
Thanks in advance :-D
