    Anyone know how to turn off 3g Data on the Xoom? Not sure how. I want to just be able to turn it on and off. 1 gig isn't much, need to conserve!

    On my phone I have a widget on the homescreen (I think called 'extended controls') which lets me toggle wifi and other common settings, and the basic Android also comes with toggles for that as well without having to hit the market.
    I assume Honeycomb will also let me add toggle widgets to the homescreen as well?

    (Getting closer and closer to failing my saving throw versus this device)

    Having WiFi on may still use some data as the device may change between connections depending on what it thinks is a better connection, usually defaulted to WiFi [Please correct me if I am wrong]

    What I have done is enter Airplane Mode and Turn on WiFi. Yes, it's a two step process, but it is what it is. :)

    Any better suggestions would be awesome!

    Go to settings, wireless & networks and tap on mobile networks. You can shut off the 3g data here.
