    I know I can turn 3g off in the menu, but is there an app that can do this via toggle? No need for it on while I'm working in front of the internet all day.

    Long press the home screen you want it on. A list will come up, press HTC widgets. Go to settings, a mobile network toggle will be there.

    There is an HTC widget already on the phone that you can add called "Mobile network" that is just a one-push toggle. When you go to add the widget, hit "Settings" and it will bring up a sub-menu.

    Alternatively, one also comes with "Beautiful Widgets" from the Market.

    Long press the power button and it's an option on the menu to toggle the mobile network (also there are power off, silent mode, vibration mode, and airplane mode).

    This. Makes it quick and easy. You should also add the power control widget - you can control autosync, bluetooth, gps, wifi, and brightness all on one of your home screens.

    1. Go to your home screen.

    2. Hit the '+' sign.

    3. Hit 'Widget'

    4. Hit 'Settings'

    5. Hit 'Mobile Network'

    it was a bit unclear. I thought they meant "choose the widget, then hit settings"

    I didn't realize that you chose the widget AFTER hitting settings. I thought 'mobile network' would appear in the list like "Power Control" then you hit settings to do something else.

    Yeah - I should probably have called it the screen lock button since most of us seldom if ever power off our phones...

    confused. Please explain what this toggle widget is actually doing. i am still able to make a call when i toggled it off!

    I also turned WI- FI off. How is it connecting to the network?

    It turns off your 3G connection which is data. You can still make calls with it off though, you just can't do anything that requires a data connection unless you decide to connect through Wifi.

    Cool. I really need to read up on this stuff. 3G/4G are essentially WI-FI connections through the cell towers?
