    Is there some way to enable/disable the APN's you have added on the phone? The only thing I see is the "restore default settings" choice.

    I would like to find a way to enable/disable the APN's so it doesn't stay active all the time...

    I guess that would be make my phone unable to receive calls and message, so that's really no option.

    Yes, as mentioned earlier in the topic you can use APNdroid. Search for it in the market. I have tested it, and it works!

    I know this is an old topic, but I just tried this and I can still access the web and facebook after I've disabled my APN. I'm using a Droid 2 with Android 2.2.
