Ok, so just to make things clear the following widgets disable things:

HTC Widgets:
Bluetooth - disables only bluetooth
Wi-Fi - disables only wifi (b,g)
GPS - disables only GPS
Mobile - disables only Verizon data (not verizon 3G voice/txt) this one confused me but I figured it out after awhile
Airplane - disables ALL wireless features stated above

Android Apps/widgets?
tried APNDroid - diables 3G/GPS but doesn't let you pick between the two.

Are there any widgets that can disable ONLY the Verizon 3G voice/txt AND data? When it comes to upgrade my phone I may want to retire my Eris to my college bound kid so they can use the Eris as a PDA only with Wi-fi and bluetooth, but NO Verizon services.

No you can't have it without a data plan (when you buy it). But, once you switch to another phone you can do whatever you want with the Eris. My wifes old blackberry works just fine, but has no service. Just block off the 3G connection and now you've got a bad @ss PDA with bluetooth and wifi capabilities that still let you do things on the net and install apps.

Don't have it activated by VzW. Skip through the initial setup, connect via wifi then go back and set it up. I'm doing exactly the same thing.
