I would get decent battery usage if people didn't text me 24/7 lol. I've never used airplane mode and never plan to unless i'm on an airplane.

Might as well turn it off lol

If you want to save battery, then after about 8 hours see what is using the most battery under battery usage.... most likely it's the display... if so then turn down your brightness and quit playing with it. lol

ok..if you want your phone to be useless. You wont receive any incoming calls or any transmissions to the phone for that matter. Just turn the phone off and take the battery out while ur at it lol

I use it at our cabin, where there is no VZW signal, to keep the phone from searching for a cell signal and draining the battery. That way I still have access to my contacts (for the wireline phone), calendar, games, Aldiko reader, etc.
