    Hi guys for the first time! :)
    I have just got my Motorola Milestone ready and working. I have set up the Internet carrier APNs (HSDPA, EDGE, 3G etc) and I wonder if it is possible that Android asks me for confirmation when connecting to one?

    I don't like the idea of changing the APN name to cheat/workaround it (to make it impossible to connect by setting up non-existing APN), I like to see what connection possibilities are around me.

    When I'm at home I have a WiFi and also would like to be sure the whole transfer is being done by WiFi, not EDGE. With each connection request confirmation I'd be sure I have it under control.

    Cheers,
    Tomek

    Have you seen APNDroid? It uses the APN rename cheat, but does it from a widget on your home page. Worked well when I had the HTC Dream. Now, with my HTC Magic, I simply use the HTC Widgets to control WiFi and network data.

    Eventually this is my only solution, but I wanted to avoid using it - I'd like to have APN ready to work but confirm if any new transmission session is requested.
