    GSB 2.8 (or is it 4.7 - I forget, it changes so often)

    To turn on mobile web I have to go to Menu>Settings>Wireless & Networks>Mobile Networks.

    Is there a more convenient way - perhaps a widget or app?
    Dazzle promises, but doesn't deliver.

    Sure, sort of. Settings->CyanogenMod settings->Interface->Notification power widget.

    Turn on the "Notification power widget". Tap "widget buttons" and make sure that you have "Toggle mobiledata" turned on. Now, when you pull down the notification bar, you'll see the power bar at the top, and you are a tap away from toggling it (it is the one that looks like two parallel arrows, one pointing up and one pointing down.)

    Ok, just thought of another. Long-press on a home screen, choose "add widget". Choose "power control". From there you can also add "Mobile data" (resist the urge to add toggle 2g/3g; I think that only works on GSM). The toggle in that looks the same - two arrows.
