    Is there an app that will allow me to turn off all data and have just the phone work?

    I love all the notifications I get but when I'm sleeping I need to hear the phone ring if someone calls but I don't need woke up everytime a sports score is posted or I get an e-mail.

    Yes. Turn off mobile data. You'll lose everything apart from phone calls and text messages. Download the widget from the market and it's a 'one press' solution. :)

    I use settings profile for this exact purpose. I have it turn off all notifications except phone ring between the hours of 11:00 P.M. and 8:00 A.M. if the phone is charging. That way if I'm up late and the phone is still on my hip I get everything but when I go to bed and plug the phone into the charger it leaves me alone.

    what kind of phone do you have??

    If you have a Droid Eris, go to + => HTC Widget => Setting => Mobile Network

    It provides a Toggle Widget anywhere on one of your screens that allow you to turn it on/off at the press of the toggle

    I use two widgets (both one-touch), one for WiFi and one for mobile data. The mobile data one is called "apndroid", the WiFi one is "WiFi OnOff"

    Ah, sorry. I've just checked and it's an HTC widget that came with my phone. I thought I'd downloaded it with the other 'curvefish' ones.

    You just turn off notifications and not downloading anything.

    It's called "Setting Profiles". Sorry if I had the plural in the wrong place. It may not mention charge state in the description but it's there. The demo only allows one setup but that's all you need. I shelled out for the pay version so I can also have a car mode. It turns wifi off, gps on and auto starts "A Online Radio"

    If you hold the on/off button long enough a Phone Options menu appears Mobile network can be turned on/off at the bottom.
