    Also, you can set the 3g to go inactive after a certain amount of time with the screen off meaning it wont hog ur battery and u don't have to keep switching it on and off just to save some battery. Turning 3g off though and only using it when needed can get you 2 days of battery life on just calls and txt and 3g when needed YMMV

    How do you do this? Also, will it then use a 1x type connection and still get emails or will all data be "off" during this period?

    You can add a widget to your homescreen as I did by following this path:
    Menu; add to home; widget; settings; Mobile Network.
    From there you can toggle on and off as you wish. It would have been nice if they included this into the power control widget.
