    I am trying to conserve battery and I know that unchecking the background data option helps. My question is what effect does this have on the phone? If background data is not enabled will things like weatherbug, Twitter, Facebook all continue to automatically update or will I have to manually request updates for everything? Also, does this effect incoming gmail and gmail contact syncing?

    Thanks!

    i use a widget called toggle data. it will toggle your data off completely with one click and back on with one click. great for when you dont want your device syncing while it is sleeping. It has drastically improved my battery life.

    The program is in the market

    Google's apps obey the unchecking of background data(ie yes it will prevent automatic syncing of gmail, contacts, calender). Other apps though may not always obey it, so they may still be downloading in the background.
