    Default Mobile Data button

    Hello. I recently updated to the Superclean Froyo build and was wondering what the Mobile Data button does? I've left it on as it already was when I booted my phone after the update, but was simply curious about its purpose. I'm sure this question has been asked before but I figured I'd ask myself. Thanks again!

    +1 to what Mike said. It essentially turns of mobile data over the cell network (a feature I've been dearly missing from my BlackBerry).

    I suppose that comes in handy whilst playing a game if you don't want a touch of lag from an email or whatnot.

    Would that help save battery life while my phone is simply idle? And thanks for the quick reply!
