    Does anyone know of an App that AUTO-switches ON and OFF the iPhone on a set time like the Blackberry???

    This is one useful function i wish is available on the iPhone:apple: from a ex-Blackberry user....

    It's not the sort of thing that is allowed in the SDK, so you'd only get one by jailbreaking. I'm not aware of one.

    Apps cannot access that part of the iPhone, so if a feature like that comes to the iPhone, it would come directly from Apple in the form of a software update.

    Dang. Looks like we need to keep each other updated when Apple decides....

    It's a simple useful function and don't think we are asking a lot of :apple::apple::apple::apple::apple:.... oh well.

    If it's off, it's off. No app could turn it on.

    This would have to be added to the iPhone's firmware, and I'm pretty sure Apple won't do it. They consider the iPhone an always-on device.
