Thank you, Rixed.
I'll try the second suggestion.
The first really kicked me! I've never used the offline mode because I 
want people to reach me on my phone number.
So I wasn't really right I don't use GPRS/2.5G/3G. I am connected to my 
cell operator all the time even when not connected to their data 
services! I just only use the call and SMS services.
To be clear: Is it normal to be connected to this basic services all the 
time with an N900 device?
Or did you, Rixed, recommend me to go offline only for testing purposes? 
To test if the battery lives longer?

A progress anouncement for everybody: I've installed the CSSU! I plan to 
watch the battery life in the next days.
