What phone can do that without burning battery? Do not know of an Android phone where this is true.

I rarely, if ever turn on BT or GPS. My phone is rooted and the vast majority of apps/background services on my phone are off. I keep touchdown on and my dialer, plus a few other things my phone demands to run. When I'm home wifi is up as it pulls less than the network. Other than that it's cut down to the bone; what's essential is running. If not for the several hundred emails I get 24 hours a day I'm sure I'd get more than 2-3 days between charges.

Then again, unlike most here, I view my cell phone as an anchor tied to me, that hasn't stopped following me for close to 10 years. It's not a toy. It's a constant, harpy, reminding me of work.
