    Hadn't seen this before...might be worth a try. I would certainly expect it to save one's battery. I've had it happen a few times that my phone has expended a lot of energy trying to find a signal when there was none to be had. As far as I know, a phone can actually use more power searching for a signal if it doesn't have one.

    I may have to give it a try out, I travel around local villages and often don't get a signal.

    Awesome discovery. I frequently find my self in areas with no signale at all. This seems to be the ticket.
    Thanks.

    Well, this app is certainly helping to improve my battery life, as I mentioned I work out in the sticks, sometimes I get signal and moments later I don't.

    Currently my battery is at 73% and 10h 17m since a charge, I've done some light web browsing, checked email a few times, lattitude, texted and 1 phone call.

    Hey...that's good to know. I don't often find myself without coverage, but when I do it's a drag to be wasting battery power. I think I'll go ahead and download it. Thanks for the update. :)
