It definitely helps. I have it on my phone but only use it if I'm going to be away from a charger or my extra batteries for an extended time.

I have found that it is easier not to use it. I notice very little difference between the way I use my phone now, as opposed to juice defender.

Really, it is all down to personal preference. I prefer to just turn off data unless I am using it, and turn screen brightness down.

I've tried it and you are better off just turning off data when you don't need it. Even with the latest modems it can take up to 30 seconds to get data back when you turn the screen on.

I actually opened this thread just to see if they had resolved the issues with the data not coming back.
If you don't mind me asking, what rom, kernel, and modem are you using?

I'm not using JD now, but when I have on Gingerbread, data return has been instantaneous. No issues at all with that either on 3G or 4G. The only time I ever had any issues with it was on Froyo.

I agree, on froyo I never used it cause you had to reboot to get data back. After the gingerbread update jd is awesome. IMO it is just as fast as turning data on and off. With the aggressive setting when you turn the screen off data turns off, screen on, data on. No extra button presses to turn it on and off.

I first tried it with froyo and ee4 modems...it would sometimes take forever/never get data back.

Running stock, rooted ep4p with imoseyon 4.0 kernel... data returns very quickly Most of the time. Sometimes, however, it would take up to 30 seconds for data to return...which was annoying enough for me to stop using it.

Just as an update, I had been running Froyo rooted ED1 for the past nine months and tried out JD last week because I got tired of the battery drain. I noticed all the same issues with the 3G/4G not returning. Last night, I unrooted back to stock EE4 so I could get the OTA from verizon to Gingerbread FP1 and then rooted it again. The change has been very noticeable, and JD transitions between data mode and no data mode instantly, just as a few others said on page 1.

I used to use JD but like others have said, a lot of times data would not come back and id have to toggle which can be quite annoying. What i was turned onto was AnTutu's Battery Saver, its free in the market and is WAY better than JD.

WAY better? How so?
I've been using JD for a while. It seems to work well. The asop helper hasn't worked for a while and there seems to be a lack of updates so I'd be willing to switch if I could find an app that automatically switches between 4G and 3g on the charge

I've never had a single connection issue with 3g, 4g, or wifi, and i always had them on JD, plus a lot of times i found JD to cause a crazy amount of wakelocks which would keep my phone out of deep sleep and cause me to lose more battery than it would save me. I dont really know what the Antutu Batt Saver does differently, but like i said, no data connection problems, no lag on the phone, and i find it to work pretty well. Im not a hardcore, on the phone non-stop type of person. I probably get between 15-20 hours per charge with a screen on time of 2-2.5 hrs. All I can tell you is to try Antutu out for yourself. It definitely wont hurt to do so.
