    Hi, Was wondering if anyone has a solution to my mobile network not turning off? When I disable it either from the mobile network widget or in settings it turns back on. I've reinstalled all the software but still happening. Its rather annoying as I used to be able to and it saves on battery power. Any help would be good thanks.

    Dial *#*#4636#*#* and scroll down, maybe GSM only will save battery, or look for other options in the menu, like turn off radio will just disconnect it completely from the web. ;)

    Do you have any apps running in the background switching it back on? Maybe some auto-syncing, or picking up emails? Or something else you have installed between the time when it used to work and now. Maybe from home go into setting > Accounts & sync and untick background data, for example. Also settings > location and untick "use wireless network".

    I have mine switched on all the time and have no problem with battery usage.
