I have always-on mobile data set to off most of the time to conserve battery, but I find the need to switch it on every once in a while - using Pandora, the odd large file to/from Dropbox, etc.

The question: Can I make an easy on/off icon (much like the WiFi or 4G widgets preloaded by HTC) so I don't have to go through the settings menu every time? App recs or how-tos appreciated.

I've got an Evo with 2.2.

HTC doesn't have a data one for that? They used to. I believe CurveFish has one on the market. I think it is APN OnOff. Or search for other APN widgets.

  • Close, but not quite (thanks for that app though; also useful) - I'm looking to enable/disable the "always on" part, not manually shut the whole thing on and off. The setting in question on the Evo is under Settings > Wireless & networks > Mobile Networks > Enable always-on mobile data (toggle).

  • Yes the APN widgets turn on and off the data to conserve battery.
