    An app that will toggle the Airplane mode on/off repetitiously OVER AND OVER. Not just at certain times of the day.

    Example, you are on vacation, away from a charger all day. You know it's inevitable that your phone will die later in the day. People still need to be able to get a hold of you, but not right away.

    This app would take the phone out of Airplane Mode about every 10 minutes. It would give the phone enough time to retrieve SMS and Voicemails, then go back to Airplane Mode.

    I imagine this could drastically save battery life. There would be a sliding scale ranging from 5 minutes to 30 minutes. Maybe even an option to decrease frequency as battery life reaches a point, say below 20%.

    I can name numerous occasions where this would save me!

    turn off data and you'll save tons of battery while still getting SMS messages if needed.

    Yeah, turn off 3g. If you have HTC device, there should be a widget to turn it off/on.

    You can still make calls and get SMS.

    Even with Data Off, my phone will die. I'm outdoors a lot, never WiFi around.

    Every phone will die eventually. Spare batteries, at 2 for $10, would seem a wise investment if you're away from a power outlet all day.
