    I'm new here and not entirely sure that this is the correct location for this question... if not, I apologize :(

    First up- I have an HTC Evo, running stock 2.2... no downgrade and root yet

    Anyhow, I would like to provide a way to locate my phone remotely should I lose it or it get stolen. There are several different apps that do this... however, in the interest of saving battery life, I always leave my mobile data, gps, and wifi turned off. So, without mobile data, none of these nice location providing apps work.

    Tasker uses APNDroid to toggle mobile data on and off, which doesn't work with CDMA phone such as mine.

    I have found no way to toggle the HTC "mobile data" widget directly with Tasker. But I have found that I can execute the HTC "Settings" app with Tasker via an SMS.

    I have to believe that there is an argument I can pass the HTC "Settings" app that will toggle the "Mobile Data" to the on position... but I can't figure out what argument to pass it.

    I have searched extensively in the forums and on the web via google search.

    I have read that it can be done with juice defender, but i don't really want another app running full time in the background... wastes battery life

    Anyone here have any advice to offer? Sorry for this being long-winded

    No takers huh? Perhaps I should have posted this in the Evo section... am I allowed to repost, or do I need a mod to do a move?
