    If it is the same as the pre, go to the phone app. In the drop down menu select preferences. And under the "network" section you should have the option to turn data usage on or off. It is the last option in the section.

    go to phone app -> menu -> preferences -> data usage -> off
    (may vary the text, I have the phone in Spanish, so I guess that must be more or less that way)
    Show must go on...

    Not that I am aware of. But I'm not familiar with all the patches there are.

    you can set the wifi to turn off when phone is asleep and on when the phone wakes up . And by default the phone will connect to known wifi networks before it will use data .

    Download the "Data in device menu" patch. You can toggle your data connection on or off at any time without having to go into the phone menu.

    The only way I know to do it automatically is to use the hombrew application, Mode Switcher. It's pretty sophisticated but someone posted thorough instructions to do what you want to do.

    Official Mode Switcher thread If you venture here I recommend reading the manual and wiki also, as there are PLENTY of other awesome things you can do with this app.

    That works, but also disables voice calls.

    Disabling internet will greatly increase battery life. I was lucky to get 12 hours of use if I didn't use it. Now with data off I can get 100 hours or more with no use
