    I was wondering if there's a way to stop mobile data being turned on when wifi is turned off?

    I usually have mobile data turned off (using Extended Controls widget) to conserve battery and I use wifi most of the time, so it's very annoying that mobile data comes on every single time I turn wifi off.

    What widget (if any) are you using to switch your Wi-Fi on and off? It sounds like maybe you have a toggle widget in place that switches between both of them as opposed to simply enabling/disabling?

    The standard HTC setup for turning on/off wi-fi and mobile data does not 'automatically' turn data on if the wi-fi is switched off. You might want to check your settings to see if you have that setting enabled.
