    standby/airplane app?

    I did some searches but could not find a thread that really pertained to my question. if I missed it, i apologize in advance to all those who find previously answered questions annoying...

    I was wondering if there was an app (or a setting) which could (in part) do the following: In an area where there is no signal (i am often in places where there is no coverage, rare for most) the phone would turn to airplane mode (or at least give the user the options of what signal to turn on/off) and then at (user determined intervals) turn back on to check for a signal.

    I have noticed that my phone does not have a signal 60% of the time (according to the battery use details).

    Does this make any sense to anyone?

    Thank you. I have figured out how to do these things manually, but am looking for an automatic option.

    I would like to know if there is a way to have it auto-detect when there is no signal and then automatically go into airplane mode (or some other user defined settings) and not have to do this manually.

    Locale may not be what you're looking for because it relies on GPS and may use more battery than necessary.

    I did check out locale. It seems like a cool app, but not what i was looking for. If what I need isn't currently available, maybe some app dev looking for a seemingly simple project might just code one.

    At the very least I am sure there is a way to make a 1-touch shortcut to go to airplane mode, but I can't figure it out.

    cool. thanks. strange how I missed that all this time.

    here's to hoping some app developer can make my (well one of them) dream come true so I don't to do this manually.
