actually what is needed is software that can sense if you are on the web and need 3g or if you are on a call and get an email and need 3g otherwise stay in 2g. would be great for battery life.

I set the Left Convenience Key to Manage Connections. Not perfect but it works. Also lets me turn Bluetooth on and off.

I use to use that but I accidently always hit those buttons so I have tuned both of them off. It drove me nuts pulling out of the holster and hitting them by accident. That is why I would love a push hold for 2 seconds. Would prevent accidental presses.
