    Is there one which by default keeps them switched off when that option is selected? Currently the Milestone reactivates them when the phone is switched back on.

    I'd find this useful so that when roaming internationally I can control when I download ie on Wifi only, and not rack on huge data bills!

    Thanks

    Menu -> Settings -> Wireless Controls

    I'n on 1.5 so my options may not be the same as yours, I have a selection for "Mobile Network" which if unticked means the phone will NOT use the mobile network for data.

    Within "Mobile Network Settings" I have an option to disable data roaming - the phone will not download data when on a roaming network if this is unticked.

    I'd imagine that these options ought to do what you are asking for. I assume that they will "stick" on a power down/power up cycle.
