WMLongLife like app? [EVDO when screen on, 1X when screen off]

Anyone know if an app exists that will enable 3G/EVDO when the screen is off (or when a certain app is launched) and turn it off/drop to 1X when the screen is off or if the app launched previously gets closed? As much as I love going 3-4 days without charging due to 1X, there are times when 3G speeds would be wonderful without going through the phone settings and setting it to 3G every time and back.

Re: WMLongLife like app? [EVDO when screen on, 1X when screen off]

I have a MortScript that someone else wrote, and I modified, that does the following, which is very similar to what you want.

If the phone is currently in 1X mode, it switches to Hybrid (enable 3G)

If the phone is currently in Hybrid mode, it terminates data connection and switches to 1X mode.

It's pretty fast (<5 seconds to run). You just run it before you get on the net, and then again when you're finished. Everything else is automatic.

Let me know if you'd like me to CAB it up

I would like to use this, but have to mod it a little more for my needs. Thanks!

Re: WMLongLife like app? [EVDO when screen on, 1X when screen off]

does running 1x only really make that much of a difference in batt life? if it does, is the difference because it is actually using less power, or is it because its so slow you stop using your data services near as often.
