    I even put my phone on airplane mode at night, beside the bed. If I wake up and want to check mail, or weather, etc, easy to flip it on. Or at movies, lectures, etc. This procedure also shuts down some of the other behind-the-scenes battery-eating functions.

    Is this the same as turning off mobile data function?

      No, if you turn off mobile data then the cell signal will still attempt to connect so that calls/sms can be made and received.

      You have to turn off the entire cellular modem to prevent that from happening (via AirPlane Mode).

    I always put my 7 into airplane mode at night – works well…
    I’ve always wondered why there’s not the facility to keep the phone in low battery mode… as you say, you hardly know it’s on!

    I miss the old “when it’s off it is off” way of things… and not services turning on by themselves. Ridiculous IMO

    Turning the service off OFF (not just off) or better yet, Airplane mode, will save battery and unwanted services.

    To really get the most out of a bad cell tower signal, sign up for calling over wifi. All your calls will route through wifi (and much higher quality at that), AND you’ll be able to make/receive calls anywhere you are in the world to over wifi for free (but you can’t call international numbers, just your domestic numbers…)

    sorry for the early morning rant ;)

    cheers

    I never turn on airplane at night for emergencies. It is what my phone is for.

    Wow it’s not that this little tidbit hasn’t been out for years, keep up the fresh info guys and keep that paycheck coming!

      What a helpful comment Darren, you’re really adding to the discussion here with your trolling. And your logic is impeccable… likewise we should probably stop teaching kids 1+1=2 and other arithmetic because those tidbits have been out for years! Why learn anything? Someone else already knows it! Just be a dunce!

    Your suggestion is pretty straightforward indeed and logical. Maybe that’s the reason as well the I can feel that my phone was heating (a little bit) because of the continuous activities within.
