    That only makes sense if you know that I have cellular data shutting off whenever I turn the display off.

    Not true you just can't receive mms messages. You can still receive text and calls

    I meant to write mms texts...not just texts...I'm aware that texts don't use data.

    How do you get the 4G off with smart action?

    Disable data and it turns off both 4G and 3G...I don't know if you can disable 4G separately and leave on 3G.

    I do receive text with Cellular Data Disabled with Trigger:Display Off. I also have set up Light Flow to flash the notification light blue when the text comes in and this works with Cellular Data Disabled.

    Trigger:
    Display Off

    Actions:
    Cellular Data Disabled
    Wi-Fi Off
    GPS Off
    Background Sync Off

    You can't do it they haven't created a shortcut for it and a widget hasn't been made yet for one-click to turn off 4g. You still have to go through settings on all the Widgets I've seen

    I've had a lot of success using these:

    At night (11:30pm - 6am) If the screen is off and no motion is detected, then GPS, WIFI, Cellular Data and background sync are all turned off.

    During the day, I do the same thing except for 10 minutes every two hours, which allows some time for email and data to sync.

    When I am on my home or work WIFI, I have cellular data turned off. If I want to send an MMS message, I toggle WIFI off, which allows 3g/4g to kick on so I can send the message. When it finishes, I toggle WIFI back on. I have a toggle on the home page to make that quick and easy.

    I set the screen brightness to auto, which has been helpful.

    These actions have made a huge difference in battery life.

    I've been using Setting Profiles for a couple years now and just found out this morning Smart Actions can almost completely replace it. The problem is I don't want to enable wifi because our internet connection is (way) slower than 4g so I usually don't want to be connected to my home network, but I do want the ability to connect easily at times. Without wifi on Smart Actions can't use location triggers (while Setting Profiles can).

    I'm not too concerned about battery usage. I'll enable wifi if I can find an easy way to toggle my home network connection -- but if I just disconnect and reconnect, that's twice as many menus to go through AND I have to retype my WPA key every time. Anyone have a good solution?

    The one trigger I have set up:
    Triggers: Night, Charging, No Motion
    Action: Launch Bedside clock

    In Setting Profiles:
    Rules: 8:30-17:00 M-F, location within a half mile of work, no vacation in my calendar
    Profile: Silent, vibrate

    Stay safe out there! I set this one up and it works great. Once I leave the car and disconnect from BT or Dock, things go back to normal.

    Trigger: Connected to in Vehicles’ Bluetooth

    Action: Auto Reply Text “I am driving. I will respond when stationary. –don’t text & drive.”

    -OR-

    Trigger: Connected to Motorola vehicle Dock

    Action: Auto Reply Text “I am driving. I will respond when stationary. –don’t text & drive.”

    For Google voice users: I had to do a workaround because I use Google Voice as my primary texting application. Within GV settings,there is an option to also notify via the native messaging app. Works like a charm.
