    Hi all,

    I have a Motorola Milestone running Android 2.1.

    Is there a widget which turns "background data" ("Settings -> account & sync -> background data") on/off? I know there are several widgets which turn auto sync on off (e.g. the power control widget) and disable data connections altogether (apndroid, quick settings, etc), but that's not what I need. I searched the market, google and this forum but couldn't find anything.

    The only workaround I found was to create a shortcut to "account & sync" using "any cut". Not a widget, but close enough.

    Is there a widget, or a better way to do this? :thinking:

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Did you find a good solution ?

    I am using a prepaid card and i don't want my Nexus to send any information when i am not connected to Wifi.

    Thanks for help.

    APNdroid might help you. I got it from the market

    With Juice Defender you can make a widget that turns on and off 3G data.
