Default turning off signal search

I've got a new job that most of the day i'm in an area that doesn't get signal. I've noticed i don't lose a lot of battery life, but when i go to area's that have some signal and the phone seems to be flipping between no data, and data, as well as finding signal and losing signal my battery drains like i'm chugging a beer.

I downloaded juice defender free version, but i'm honestly at a loss with it thinking i need a paid version.

The location also has a wifi connection that i can connect to.

Any advice on how to save battery life without having to shut the phone off, and turn it on when ever i go outside would be great.

How about if you uncheck "Data Enabled" under settings>mobile networks. That should work, I think.

You can do the same thing with the power options widget.

airplane mode? That should solve your problems for the most part...unless you want wifi.
