    Hi All,

    Is there a way to set up your HERO to use mobile network to connect to the internet to download emails lets say every 15-30 mins?
    I was looking for some sort of Mobile network scheduler.

    Any clue?

    You need two apps to do this APNDroid and Locale. APNDroid can turn your mobile internet on and off, although it does it in a very crude way by modifing your APN name and type. Locale has an APNDroid plugin which you can use to schedule it but Locale has a hefty price tag.

    I just have a HTC widget on my home screen which I use to turn mobile internet on/off as I need it.

    You do not need any apps. Just go into the HTC Mail programme - find it by hitting the little up button on the bottom left of the screen. Then hit the menu button > more > Settings > Send & Recieve > set download frequency. Then choose what frequency you want the downloads to happen.
