    SIAP - Does the Incredible have an auto on/off feature? I really liked that on my BB Curve.

    If not, is there an app for that? TIA.

    It will cut off when the battery runs out. What on/off feature are you talking about with the curve? Who turns their phone off?

    The curve has like a auto standby feature. Basically like a sleep/hibernate mode you can set it to turn of/on at certain times to save battery and stuff like that.

    I do not believe there is one for android. t works on BB's because they way they are made. When you power it off you don't really turn it off just goes into a really low power state. Thats why you need to do a battery pull every once in a while. its like a real restart.

    I had my Curve set to automatically turn off/standby at 1 A.M. and power back on at 6 A.M. Alarm was set for 6:15. I set it up that way to preserve the battery. Just a nice feature that I liked.

    Locale is an app that lets you turn features on and off at set times or locations or both. Maybe that would help?

    There's no auto-off feature that I can find.
    Long-pressing the power button gives the following options:

    I need something that turns off the verizon radio signal, i work in a casino and my phone dies fast because it is constantly searching for signal, ill try hooking it up to the Wi-Fi, but thats no guarantee, depends on IT if they have it locked. Anything like that? Is that Airplane-Mode?

    Airplane mode turns off all radios (WiFi, GPS, CDMA) but maintains all other functions.
    It will save battery life but you won't be able to make/receive calls.
