    Settings --> Wireless controls --> Mobile networks --> Enable always-on mobile (uncheck it)

    I couldn't believe the increase in battery life! You still get your push Gmail & Google Talk.

    Search for 'Widget' in the Market, there is a great Wifi on/off toggle as well as a Bluetooth and Brightness.

    Really great little Widgets you can then place on the main desktop.

    Enjoy :)

    Rogers in Canada has this setting. My 'other' emails (pop, exchange) don't receive anything when i do this unfortunately so its not an option.

    Thanks for the find.. I'll have to try it on mine and see how much of a difference it makes.. Does anyone know if using this method will still save battery life if I have a) Gmail pushed and b) calendar sync via google calendar.. Just wondering.. I can't see why not but just thought I'd through it out there
