    I have the Data ON-OFF widget on my homepage. Data gets turned on when I need it (like when I'm driving and need data), Otherwise it's off. No reason to burn battery when I don't need it. GPS and Bluetooth are also off when I don't need them, and Wifi goes off when I leave the house. (And the screen times out in 15 seconds and locks after 5 minutes.)

    Maybe that's why I can go 3 days or more between charges.

    Leaving data on when you don't need it is like leaving a flashlight on when you don't need it.

    If I am on wifi my data automatically switches off and it switches back on when wifi is turned off.
