    On a stock rooted phone? I disabled 3G Data, but I notice the signal meter is still on all the time, so I assume the 3G/CDMA radio is on. I'm not activated and just using wifi, so I wonder if I can turn off.

    That's the cellular radio (phone/sms), and if you're not activated, might as well go into airplane mode, which will turn that off too. Wifi can still be active in airplane mode.

    Thanks. So simple. I have another device that turns off wifi in Airplane mode, so I didn't even try that.

    Also, you can dial *#*#4636#*#* and hit phone options, and then you can slect disable the radio. or airplane mode works...
