    i feel like then you would have to have a pre-constructed list of apps that require data... unless maybe there was a way to code it so that if an app requested data it would automatically be able to turn on?

    The best way would be with pre-constructed list of apps that require data. Or screenstate toggling data on/off IF no wi-fi hotspot found.
    BTW I don`think screenstate toggling data on/off would drain battery more than just staying data on. Same thing is with wi-fi sleep settings "turn wi-fi off". It uses much less power than staying always on.
    And for GSM pre: there is BIG difference in using battery power between 2g and 3g when in idle. But even 2g (Edge) staying always on consumes too much power. So I always switch data off when I don`t need it and because of that I would like a patch which can do this automatically.

    People that use push e-mail need data on all the time, so count them out.

    People that use push e-mail would not install the patch I am asking for. ;-)
    BTW for push e-mail I use sms mail gateway (I suppose every mobile operator suports it). For every mail I receive sms with first 160 letters. If something is important I open mail app and download rest of message. This is the best for battery life and I don't miss any e-mail. I do this for years since my treo 600. Good thing was that we had treo tools, app for sms triggers. I had trigger that opened snappermail and downloaded e-mails when I received sms from sms-mail gateway number. That was automatic on every treo I had (600, 650, 680) and now this is semiautomatic on my pre. :-)

    I really don't understand why there isn't any patch like this when there are huge demands.

    I was talking about GSM - i've never had or used a cdma so i have no experience with them.
