    Default Turning off Mobile Network - Running wifi Only?

    Just curious is there a way to turn off mobile network and only have wifi turned on?

    I know how to do this on my BB (manage connections, etc). Just not sure how to do it on Droid.

    I wanted to test out an app to see if it works on wifi only and does not have to have and use 3G/1X service.

    Thanks,

    Settings>>> Wireless & networks>>>turn on airplane mode>>>> wait a few seconds till you see the 3G symbol vanish>>> select wi-fi.........
    another trick you can do is>>> find a screen where you dont have many programs>>> tap on menu >>>>tap on ADD>>>select widgets>>>select Power Control.this gives you quick access to all quick settings.

    Yeah that is what I did just was not sure if that was correct at all. Good to see that I am not totally stupid. App did not work when I did it so that is what threw me off.

    There's also an app - a toggle called something like 'toggle data'

    There's a widget or app called Airplane Mode, and it's used more than any other on mine. With the battery widget, where you control BT, Wifi and GPS, you have all the controls in two widgets.

    A quick way to airplane mode is to hold down the power button/screen toggle switch for about 3-5 seconds, and a menu will pop up asking you if you want silent, to shut down the phone, or go into airplane mode. Choose that one.
