    Not sure if this is possible. I'm looking for an app which would let me configure things like message notification, ring volume, data/wifi connections and sync depending on where I am.

    Basically, what I want to be able to do is that when I'm in the office, my wifi is enabled and then my Gmail/Facebook can sync as much as it likes. Also ringtone can be on, but message notification silent.

    When I'm out the office, wifi would be off, data on, sync disabled and sound notifications on.

    When I'm at home, wifi on, data off, sync back on and while asleep, sync off, ring and notifications off.

    A lot to ask I know, but I like to set a challenge ;)

    Tried using Auto Profile Switch which uses location to auto switch along with times but i cant seem to get it to auto switch.

    Also got down Toggle Profile Lite which you can set profiles nicely including sync settings and other customised stuff but no auto switch. Looks as though the paid version does, but like to be sure first. Don't wanna pay and find it doesn't switch like other one.

    Main one seems to be Locale but

    Ok using valet profile at mo and works well but no data option. Also installed settings profile lite which does have sync but tested a test profile change based on time and it didn't change.

    Widget one would be ok as well with say buttons for home/work/sleep.

    ok thanks didn't realise that. Just downloaded and WOW, it looks powerful and confusing. Managed it to create the action when my wifi is near but can't work out setting notification sounds

    ok think I have got the basics of it, so damn powerful and probably think too much for what I need lol. Trying to be clever with events and see if I can some how define an event for when I get in my car and to switch Bluetooth on but don't think that would be possible, unless I do via a gesture or something
