Find a good radio and disable any communication services you don't need.

Also, if you don't need Evdo (Data), then put the phone into 1x.
It will save alot of battery because it doesn't have to keep trying to search for the evdo connection.

Also, turn off or reduce any scheduled updates, like weather, email, etc. The less your phone seeks the network, the better.

Any draw backs to this, other than a slower data connection?

Nope, I do it occasionally depending on the area I'm in and the length of time I'm in that area.
