    certain apps have to wake the phone, say to give notifications etc
    kernal, to my understanding is the big chunk of firmware that controls the phones deepest functions (hope someone can correct me lol)
    doubt id use juice defender as i tend to control whats usin up power manualy but im sure its good for some people.
    have you ever looked into data use in settings and selected a certain app, theres a pie chart showing data used in foreground/background... for the apps that i feel dont need background data, i disable it to save battery

    I like the gsam app. Shows me more than juice defender. I just haven't got around to getting rid. I do use the data use and I have set most things to when I am connected to WiFi. So while I am at work it doesn't suck the battery life to much. I use WiFi at home mainly. I have just upped mg data usage to 2gb for an extra 2 so I can watch TV or you tube while at work. Saying all this I'm not much for one in changing a lot of the stuff on my phone. I'd just like it to work out of the box and do a few simple add on here n there. I'll leave All the changing to you guys

    What does the CPU spy do mate? Sorry for the ignorance of my question I am a little less intelligent on these things.

    im on Three p+g, 15 for unlimited data, 3000txt, 300mins.
    giffgaff runs on o2, its just went from 10 to 12qid unlimited data, unlimited text, 250mins. it doesnt have a call centre, its online forums and u get "payback" for helping noobs and introducing folk to the network. in a 6month period i earned 160 just by doing the same as i do on this forum lol i just keep a giffgaff sim active to still earn payback (3 data is like 2ce as fast) but ive heard o2 are gettin 4g?

    I am not sure about 4g at the moment. I am in a 24 month contract so it will be a while till I get something new. A lot of people say get a sim only and then buy the phone outright. Then you have the choice to update your phone as and when you please :thumbup:
