Help settings widget

On my O2 HTC Desire, in the widgets menu is a settings widet.

In this menu, you can choose 1x1 toggle control widgets for GPS, Wifi, etc. Presumably to save battery.

My question is, does the 'Mobile Network' one just control the data connection? or all mobile communication on the phone?

what i mean is, by toggling this off, will the phone still be able to receive calls, texts etc. or can it only do that with it toggled on?

Hi Carsngadgets,

Yeah thats correct - if you turn off the 'mobile' widget it shuts off the data connection but it will still function as a normal phone.

I find the andriod 'power control' widget is better than the 1x1's becuase it includes a brightness control button also
