    The standard power control widget is great but does not seem to have a switch for Mobile Internet (3G). Am I right?

    If so, is there a power-control-looking widget that has a switch for Mobile Internet?

    And yes, I tried searching the forums but did not find an answer. It could be buried in the layout thread or must have apps thread.

    EDIT:

    I was looking on App Brain and saw a few toggle widgets, but:

    A lot don't seem to work on the Incredible. Several are especially incompatible with Launcher Pro, which I am running, or incompatible with CDMA phones.

    Just hold down the power buttong and an option to turn the mobile network off comes up on the bottom of the menu.

    I too was searching for a widget to use with launcherpro but have given up and this is pretty much jsut as easy

    I used to toggle 3G on and off like it was going out of style...trying to save battery and it did albeit minimal in my experience. I just leave mine on now all the time I get a day and a half off a charge on the 1750 SEIDIO so it's all good. There is not (that I know of) a 3G toggle that directly toggles it on and off without going into the 3G settings for home replacements. This is why many stick to Sense.

    Doesn't turning off Mobile Internet also turn off 1x Data?

    Yes, most people here seem to refer to mobile internet = 3g. Technically, that's incorrect.

    Turning off mobile internet complete turns off "the internet". You can still make calls/send texts though.

    On previous phones I had, I was able to turn off 3G and keep 1x. Huge battery savings (at the expense of a huge drop in speed/usability on the internet), especially in marginal signal areas.

    This is also my preferred method. No extra icon on screen and just as easy.

    Whats funny is , I dislike Sense so much and enjoy LP so much that I actually put a home switcher icon on my screen and would switch to sense while I was at work where I only had one thing on the Network Widget and would do it that way until someone on this site pulled my head out of my arse and made me relize I was ******ed and there is a option on the power menu .. .DUHHHHH

    My bad. the cvolume app lets me easily lower any one of my notifications.

    I cant find how and where i got the other app. i checked my downloads at the market, no good. alls i know is its 4 seperate touchy apps that turn off wifi,gps,blue and mobile internet.


    ill keep looking-

    Actually EasySwitch will do it in a single step under 2.1 or 2.2. Works fine with LauncherPro too.

    EasySwitch for the win. Looks pretty too.

    I use it cuz my 3G radio keeps randomly shutting off and on. Now I can fight the symptom til I find the cause.
