    Does it just disable the 3G and keep the regular phone connection? Is it like airplane mode?

    I now get over 2 days on my battery by using this app. I Have been using this app for over a week now and I love not having to charge my battery everyday.

    Exactly what does this app do and how well does it help? I have been trying to figure out a way to have my battery last me longer than 4 hours for the last few weeks and can't find the solution..

    Thats bad battery life. I could not handle only 4 hours of life with a phone. Something is wrong with your phone or its a bad battery. Maybe see if Verizon could replace it for you. This app turns off your 3G service. It turns your phone into a dumb phone when you dont need internet service. I dont need internet on all the time so it gives me over 2 days of battery life. I got 3 full days on my battery with 3G off and moderate use.

    I use an app called widgetsoid. You can make your own toggle bars that are similar to the standard power control bar. Except u can choose other things like mobile data toggle. I make the bar clear so it doesn't cover my wall paper but it'd still on the home screen and easy to get to. Helps with battery a lot having all those toggles right there....
