    APNdroid is a great android app and comes with a widget that effectively turns off data but still enable text/voice. It's great for a day of snowboarding when you only need the essentials but need the battery to last!

    The battery was only at 75% by the end of the day for me. Check it out, it's a very high quality and professional app.

    And for you lazy foos, here's the QR code:

    this is built into the phone....

    hold open screen

    htc widgets


    mobile network

    with mobile network off you still get texts and calls, but no web and it saves battery significantly. no need for an extra app.

    however, i have had poor luck with this widget. it will turn the network off but it does not turn it back on when i press it again.

    remove it and add it again, mine works fine, are you using some kind of homescreen or widget app or anything? if it keeps breaking get a new phone.

    I've also had bad luck with the built-in widget which is why I had to resort to APNdroid
