    Turn on airplane mode. That turns off the 'phone'.

    Airplane mode turns all radio communications off, no calls, no txt, and no data. Why are you trying to turn 3g off?

    Wondering if it would help battery time. I have heard that turning off 4g helps battery life on the t/b and I wondered if the same type of route would help my x.

    4G uses up A LOT more battery than 3G that's the down side about it, but maybe it will save battery I just got an extended batt, use lowest resolution n I'm good for 8hrs of instense use which means 8hrs of music non stop, 8hrs of txting non stop n 8hrs of surfing the web non stop.

    If I dnt touch my phone @ all it takes about 35hrs to die maybe more

    No need to turn off 3G to get good battery life on the DX...might as well just turn the whole phone off...

    1) Go into Settings--->Battery--->Nightime Saver Mode..this is actually IMO a better setting than Maximum Saver, at least on my Droid X.

    2) Your e-mail accounts, do they sync on their own? What type of schedule? Sync only over WiFi or over 3G as well? Set them for WiFI Only if you are in a good WiFi area...extend the times out if you are mostly on 3G.

    3) What type of signal reception do you have, Great, Good, Lousy or 2 Soup Cans and some String? If your signal reception is Low, your phone will work harder trying to stay connected and trying to bounce between stronger towers. If signal is really bad, but a free WiFi connection is available, switch the WiFi on and keep it on until you are in a better 3G area.

    4) Do you have any Social Widgets, RSS Feed Widgets, Weather Widgets or any other Widgets/Apps that like to update themselves regularly? If so, what are the refresh times for each? Can you set them to only update on a Manual Push? If not, then set the frequency to the longest permissible time frame for your ease of use and lifestyle.

    Thats basically all my "tricks" that I utilize to keep my Droid X going for upwards of 24+ hours on any given day....I hope they might help you as well...
