    I would say yes just becasue it turns off 3g/wifi. That will save power.

    It also disables the phone radio itself, not just the data radios.
    Until the next time… And if I help you out, give me a "Thanks!" Thanks!

    If you're going to do that, just turn the phone off.

    Ya I was on a 6 hour plane flight playing a game and it worked pretty good but a lot of battery life is drained when you are using an app that uses the data connection esp 3G.

    It'll save a LOT of battery in standby and what not, but if you're still using resource-intensive apps like most games, it won't be as noticeable.
    Respect your elders.
