    does anyone know of a way (either an app or another method) of determining how often my phone is in a state of "searching for service" ?

    Thank you.

    I wonder what would an average be?

    you should try and get zero. If you are entering a place with no signal put on airplane mode to save battery. Otherwise 5% or less is decent for a days use.

    I wish there was a way to turn on WiFi but completely turn off radio (not just 3G)

    I have now a network extender from VZW. It works well when im on a call, but doesnt help at all for battery purposes.

    My phone does not connect to it until i make or receive a call. So if phone is idle, i still have no service.
