Re: Cellular data or WiFi

Same here. Cellular even when I'm at home.

WiFi only if I need to remote desktop my computer when I'm too lazy to go upstairs, or to access some files remotely.

With WM6 you can very easily turn off the phone radio when using WiFi. Have you explored ways to tweak your registry to maximize battery life? The tweaks available are harmless, so no need to worry about your PPC blowing up.

Re: Cellular data or WiFi

I've used Advanced Config to turn on all the power-save options and also changed the battery registry using Total Commnader from 5000 to 4E20 (can't remember the name of the file). I have Diamond TF3D Config but the tweaks lock up my weather tab for some reason.

Anyway, last I checked, WiFi used about twice the current as Data. I'll try to turn the phone radio off next time but then I can't get incoming calls.
