Turning off 3G and limiting to 2G or EDGE in AT&T
Loaded Quick Settings from the Market. Fixed one of my problems with the notification ringer volume setting itself down. Like the app and interface.
BUTTTTTT on the turning off 3G it does not work... sent the following email to the Quick Settings bunch... it bounced back... anyone know how to get hold of them???? following is the email and description of the problems. Anyone else know an answer for a Galaxy S phone... particularly a Captivate?

i have the same problem--can't get 3G back on. i usually leave 4G off unless i'm using it, so it's very frustrating that i can't get 3G back on and then get "network unavailable" notifications all the time...
