I only turn on wifi, bluetooth or GPS when I need to use them. Cellular data is a big *no* unless I specifically need it. At home I use wifi for broadband internet so keep it enabled and keep the handset plugged into the computer to keep the battery charged. So called "free" apps which download adverts can't use GPS, cellular data or wifi when it's turned off.

I find myself ensuring I have enough charge for the day, and keep a charger ready at home for when I need it :smileywink:
