    There is one thing that I really miss from winmo and I was wondering if there is an app for anroid that will do this. With winmo when an app need to access the internet it would automatically connect and then after a certain amount of time idle it would disconnect. I have not been able to do this with android. Is there an app that will do this for me?

    With the nature of the automatic updates for this phone based on widgets, social apps, gmail/e-mail and all that other stuff it would essentially always been on anyway?

    Otherwise go into
    Menu > Settings > Wireless Controls > Mobile Network Settings > Enable always-on mobile

    This will then make it so your phone only uses the 3G when you tell it to.

    If this isn't what you were hoping for, i'm not sure you are going to find anything else.

    I have all of the items that update set to manual so the 3G isn't on all of the time. I will try the setting you recommended and see how it does. I was hoping it would connect and disconnect automatically as needed.
