Force all internet connections through wireless
Hi everyone, first post here
I've decided to buy a Desire HD when it's released here in Portugal (end of Oct). My question is not specifically related to the HTC's phone, but I assume for the Android system as a whole.
I usually travel abroad, so having a phone that tries to connect to the internet several times a day will get me broke very quickly. I also don't want to pay for an internet package here at home.
Is there a way of setting Android phones (and the Desire HD especially) to work online only with Wireless? Block other ways of connecting to the internet completely?

Apart from being easier to use APNDROID gives you an onscreen visual indication of your 3G state so you can be sure it will be doing its job (but you could accidently turn if off also I suppose). For me a lot of the settings are cryptic and leave enough scope for misinterpretation that I'd rather have something that just stops the apps from working at all over data.
For the paranoid you'd also want to install "3G watchdog" and have it visible only when 3G is on.
