    Hi,

    My question may seem silly. But i'm a noob when it comes to smart phones.
    In many user comments i read that keeping the phone in stand by mode at night(i.e when you sleep) saves the battery.
    But how to put the phone into stand by mode? :thinking:
    Please dont laugh at my question :)

    The comments you are refering to, probably mean "Airplane mode". It switches off the 3 transceivers in your device: the Phone, Wifi and Bluetooth radios (but not GPS as this is just a receiver). You can toggle Airplane mode on/off by long-pressing the power button.

    No but you could schedule your phone to turn on the cell radio once every hour for 2 minutes or so, to allow text msgs coming through. You'll need Tasker or another scheduler app.

    You should be able to find "Tasker" on the market. If you can't find it (for some phones it just won't show up), you can download a free 14 day trial at the dev's website.

    You're gonna love Tasker.

    Good luck!
