    Before I fall asleep, I like to use my phone to relax by reading some news, browse CrackBerry, watch YouTube, etc and so I sleep with my phone by my head. Does anyone know of an app (preferably headless,if it requires it ) where I can set the times to disable the radio, say from 2am to 7 am, as a way to get rid of my radiation exposure as much as possible? I understand I can set the radio to turn off when I charge my phone, but I want it to turn on when at certain times.

    Thx

    Edit: I am looking for an app that will automatically enable and disable the radio at certain times.

    Clock > Swipe from top > Settings > disable connection while on bedside mode, enable energy saving mode while on bedside mode.

    It doesn't give you a "on queue" (on clock?) feature, but don't you take the phone off bedside more anyway when you wake up?

    If you do indeed take the phone off bedside mode when you wake up at 7am, there will be nothing preventing you from getting messages/calls...

    Wll that's as much help as I can be. If my idea is not ok with you, you are welcome to look for such app in BBWorld (and share the finding here. There may be others looking for such stuff).

    Yea, but I'm still sleeping at 7 haha I guess what I'm looking for is an app that will automatically turn on and off the radio at specific times.

    If I were sleeping, I would ne annoyed to get calls. You can call me during my wake time! Not before!

    But I see what you mean, good luck finding that app!

    So it seems what you need is a clock radio. I have one and it works like this: I set the alarm before I go to sleep, and allow the radio to play with the timer button so it turns itself off after 30 minutes. When the alarm is set to wake me, it's actually the radio playing. My phone is never next to my head (battery, not radio, issues), and it's still on Bedside Mode. Does anyone still make clock radios?

    What a CLASSIC!

    Erm... I don't really see how this is a solution to the OP's habits. And the radio he refers to is the part of the phone that handles calls and everything carrier, not AM/FM radio.

    My guess was he was being somewhat sarcastic. But he was still being helpful. Based on the scientific data currently available if the OP is truly concerned with the phone having an effect on his health, the back light disrupting his sleep patterns is much more likely to have an effect before the radiation will.

    Way more useful features besides these also.

    Fantastic app

    Doesn't shut off the raido though.
