I'd like to be able to turn the 3G connection on and off without navigating the "Settings -> Wireless and networks -> Mobile Networks" menus each time.

Is there a widget (or some other way) of turning 3G on and off from the home screen or the "Dashboard"?

Dashboard: I don't know what it is called but it is accessible by tapping the clock (bottom right). – Ron Tuffin Nov 7 '11 at 8:06

Instead of widget use apps like data switch. Unlike widget this app doesn't consume resource when idle. There are tons of other apps/widget if you don't like this one or this one doesn't work for you. For eg:

I use the Power Control Widget. Allows you to toggle Data, wifi and various other settings from your home screen.
