    My dad works in a secure building and needs a phone without a camera. He's with ATT and uses a dumbphone. He wants an android phone he can swap his sim card into while not at work. He has neither a data plan or a texting plan because he doesn't use them. He's considering an unlocked Legend or N1 if he can find an app/widget that will disable the data network radios on his phone, so he can only use the wifi. Would this work, or are there better apps/widgets you guys know of?

    MSFT GHD
    long press power button, "connect to network"
    alternatively add a settings widget for "mobile network" to turn it off and on

    Correct, however if the N1 is what you choose the option to turn off mobile network is not available. AOSP roms don't have this option.

    This has nothing to do with an EVO though :D

    You might better off/more productive asking in the legend or n1 forum. The evo is far from what your dad is looking for. It has a camera, doesn't have a sim card....

    Good luck getting an android phone without a camera. I also work in a secure building, and cannot bring my evo in. They dont care if you turned off your network or turned off your camera. If it has a lens, then you wont be able to bring it in.
