Yeah I can see how switching to just edge might save battery in your case. I have a lot of apps that request data periodically with no settings to control, so it's quite useful for me. Like for instance my weather app, newsreaders, IM apps etc
Also about the apps that request data on a timer pull, I remember the dev saying that it depends on the app in question- some are coded so as to "hold" off from bugging the os for network connectivity until a valid internet connection is detected again, while some are not. Once you get back online, the app gets to sync data.

Seems to work on my Droid running a 2.1 ROM, but I get the following error in Juice Defender on my wife's Eris running 2.1: "Error: No APN Found"
Any ideas why?
