Worth mentioning if you have a smart phone that you only use at home Turn off the data connection so you dont get caught with all those .01 charges I had scores of them over a month.

Yup - same here - am in wireless zone 99% of the time when I need to use my phone....so have data disabled. Am not on a plan, just pre-pay, so if I leave data on it just whittles away at my balance for no real gain.

Not really sure how this belongs under '2degrees', specifically?

If you have an android phone you can also use an app called AutomateIt to do something similar, I have it set so that once the GPS gets within 200meters of my house that it turns mobile data off and then wifi on. then similar if I get to within 200m of my work it then turns off wifi and turns the phone onto silent, its a great app to have.
