Got data.. have a question!

I finally broke down and got data/internet on sprint. Was previously only using wifi for all my internet needs but realized for this phone to be fully functional I need an internet plan.

My question is when I use the data (for example updating weather), the data symbol (two arrows) up top remains. Does this mean the phone is still receiving data and killing battery life? If so is there a quicker way then going into comm manager ---> data connection to turn it off?

Thanks!

Re: Got data.. have a question!

Yes, seeing those arrows means data is on, just not active. It will eat battery. I have my "long press end key" set to kill data. Works well.

If you kill the data but you use push mail, or pull mail set at intervals, or if you use data often, you will use more battery power to restart the data session than you would if you left data on.
This has been discussed by members here that cook their own ROMS and have done testing on the battery usage. If there is a gain, it is very little.
There is also a tweak you can do to the registry that would automatically turn data off in 60 seconds or whatever time you set.
Most set it to 60.
But as I said, if you use applications discussed above that use data or enterdata sessions often, it is best to leave data on.

You can change a registry regarding battery polling. From 5000 to 20000.
That helps to have more battery reserve throughout the day.
Let me me know if you want to do that tweak.
It is alittle more involved to change the registry setting as you need a Task Manager that changes the registry. And you have to be careful.
I only mention this because I see you want to make your battery last longer.

Regarding battery polling >

HKLM/Drivers/BuiltIn/Battery
Look for PollingInterval and change the decimal value data to
20000.
If you have done Registry Editing before, no problem.
If not, then you need a TaskManager such as DotFred Task Manager 3.1 that also enables you to Registry Edit and many other things.
Be careful while Registry Editing or you can really screw things up.
Make sure you have a Back up in case you have to do a Hard Reset because you changed a registry that you were not supposed to, and forgot what you changed.
But if you read up on Registry Editing and are careful, you should not have any problems.
Something Reset after changing the value data.
Changing the Polling Interval value data should help with getting more out of your battery.

EDIT:
If you have a CUSTOM ROM, you may already have this registry tweak done already. So check it out and see what the value data is.

Re: Got data.. have a question!

Thanks again guys.. another quick question..

I only pay for the 15$ internet from Sprint.. if a program says it uses gps.. is this included through the data package or could it possibly be charging me more?

Re: Got data.. have a question!

As long as you have UNLIMITED Data (aka 5gb monthly cap), and the GPS Program does not have any additional costs such as a monthly charge, you should be ok.
But always check with the GPS Program provider regarding any charges or fees.
