    Load FRF57 froyo. Install a low voltage kernel. Set it to 125 MHz - 600 Mhz OnDemand.

    Now switch off data (Use any cut), switch off GPS, BT, WiFI (use stock power widget), set screen brightness to min (use stock power widget).

    Keep your phone usage to minimum, say only a few minutes per day. Do not use data.

    The battery can last up to 10 days. Mine lasted for 9 and half days with about 20 minutes of talking in total.

    Now why would you do this ? May be just for kicks.

    Well this could be good to know if you're ever stuck in the middle of a wilderness and need your phone to last as long as possible. :icon_eek:

    This is a [challenged] thread. Guess how you can save gas...don't drive your car. Guess how you save grocery money...don't eat any food!

    This is useful. Although I had to cancel, I was planning to go camping for the next four days. I wanted to be reachable in an emergency, but had no plans to even look at my phone otherwise. Certainly no ability to charge it.

    A problem would be the cell reception. A phone that's always searching will drain the battery pretty quickly.

    Why not just take it out, power off the phone. Whenever you want to make a call, put it back in and use it. Then take it off and power off the phone again? I'm sure it could last atleast a month.
