    Anyone using Green Power now that Juice Defender isn't working on TBOLT?

    Ever since I d/l Green Power I am not getting any 1x, 3G, or 4G speeds. IS that because of Green Power? Can I change the settings to fix this or does it have something to do with my reception/Verizon network?

    I'm having a similar problem with Green Power. It seems to turn off the data connection and I can't get it back without disabling GP and rebooting the phone.

    Green Power manages your connections, like Wifi and 4g etc on its own. For instance, when you are in an area that has wifi access, it will disable 4g and have wifi working on its own.

    Is there a way to have green power not disable or restore network connection when screen comes back on?

    Lets compare settings. I reinstalled green power after Thursday when there was that network outage. I've got my settings as off for 1 hr and on for 2 minutes. I think that is enough to find a signal and sync but not burn lots of battery if there is no signal. I also manually turn on and off the wifi and mobile network at the widget level so there is no hunting for signal unnecessarily. This seems to be working well for me but Monday at work will be the real test.

    What have other people been using?

    This app sucks. I might delete it already. Its great at night but during the day its garbage. I find myself having to turn off the app 2-3x per day so I can access the network for navigation, voice commands, and any facebook app.

    This app needs work IMO. It should auto-start the network when phone is out of sleep mode

    After a few of racking my brains, I finally came to the conclusion that this app was causing all my network access issues.
