    Any way of disabling the data on the moment to save battery? :thinking:

    I use a free app from the Market called SMODA Widget.

    This app seems complicated with mixed comments. What exactly does it do and do you have a samsung moment?

    There is a menu option to disable background data.

    Menu > Settings > Accounts and Sync > Background Data

    It doesn't disable data completely, but it does help with battery life.

    It's not really complicated. It's a widget, so you long press on the home screen-add widget-SMODA widget. Then, you just press it once to disable data and press it again to re-enable data. You can still make calls and send/receive texts (don't think picture texts would work, though).

    It doesn't work for some people, but I've had no problems on my Moment.
     

Samsung Moment

The Samsung Moment was one of the first Android Phones with a slideout keyboard.
