    Hi folks. I've just upgraded from an HTC Hero running Froyd Villian, to a Galaxy S2.

    One of the things that I can't find how to change, is the buttons in the notification bar. There's one for Wifi, but not one for data. I don't have 3G enabled all the time, so is there a way to add that button in place of one of the others?

    My Hero had this as part of Froyd Villain.

    Press and hold power button select data network. You can turn it off and on there.

    Which isn't really the same thing. I've currently got a shortcut on the desktop to do that, but I was looking to have a button the same as the others.

    With an awesome phone such as the gs2 I wouldn't bother with that. Just search the market.

    I don't want to install and run an app for something that the OS should be doing.

    There's no way to change them but I wish there was. I never turn auto-rotation on/off so I would much prefer an option for 2G/3G there.

    I think the only way to do that is to run a custom ROM. Some come with that pre installed others have themes and mods which add it.

    I thought that would be the case. Seems a bit of a missing feature from the stock android rom. I never use Bluetooth, so it's a wasted button for me.

    I'll probably wait till I'm a couple of months into my contract then put on a custom ROM.
