    Here is what I do.

    1. Unless in use, turn off GPS, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi
    2. Go into settings>location & security>uncheck "use wireless networks" & "Use GPS satellites" & "Enable Assisted GPS"
    3. Go into settings>battery manager>battery settings>select "Maximum Battery Saver"
    4. Go into settings>data manager>email & corporate sync>email delivery>turn off data push & set fetch schedule for 1 hour
    5. Don't use social networking widget

    You can also go into settings>sounds>uncheck "haptic feedback"

    FYI...I do not think task killers are a necessity, but they do make it easy to kill a program (if needed)

    I use advance task killer. It's an easy way to kill the programs ruining in the background.

    ?

    This may be a stupid question, but the "use wirless networks" "Use GPS Satellites" and "Enable Assisted GPS" is greyed out on my DX. They are checked, but I can't uncheck them?
