    Hi all,

    Trying to find a quick toggle widget or shortcut to the Wireless & Network settings.

    I figured I would just make a shortcut using the phone's own shortcut creation BUT it doesn't allow me to shortcut to "Wireless and Network".

    Anyone know of an app that will take me directly there? I'm constantly switching between 3G and WiFi, and getting to those settings is a little longer than I would like.

    Currently, this is how I access "Wireless and Network":

    From Homescreen: Menu -> Settings -> Wireless and Network

    Any help is appreciated.

    It might not be exactly what you are looking for, but there are alot of wifi widgets on the market (I use droidmania's but there is also a stock widget) and I've noticed that when I activate wifi, my 3g or 1x service bar does not show in the notification bar, so I think when you turn on wifi, it supercedes the 3g service. you can also put a shortcut on one of your screens, Just choose shortcut (instead of widget or program) go to settings and select wifi. It will put a shortcut to your wifi settings. But I don't think you can put a shortcut to just your network and wireless.

    You looking for wifi or carrier network? All suggestions so far deal only with wifi access not the carrier network.
