    Is there a way to get a 3g toggle button on the homescreen?

    Since I like to conserve my battery but very lazy, I was wondering if there is a way to add a 3g toggle button to the homescreen?

    Having to go through the settings menu can be a little annoying everytime and it would be much more useful to me than the bluetooth toggle currently...

    Thank you for your help.

    The "toggle" buttons I've seen are only a directly link to the settings page.

    2G-3G OnOff by Curvefish is a single toggle widget for turning 3g on/off.

    There is also Toggle Data Widget which does the same feature.

    Best thing to do is search "3g widget" on the Marketplace and you can see what they have!

    Because of the way Android networking is set up, there's no way to directly toggle 2G and 3G/4G without performing potentially dangerous modifications to the system, and even these methods were disabled in Android 2.1 and higher.

    Also, Android security prevents more than two-layer menu shortcuts in most cases, which essentially doesn't allow direct access to the function that would toggle 2G and 3G/4G.

    The closest that can be attained is a shortcut to the settings page, as the widgets do.

    CM has the 3G toggles built in to the power widgets, which you can also fix to your notification drop down. It works great, and it's the reason why I stock with CM. You can customize it, also. I have mine to switch from 2G, to 3G, to 2G/3G...

    Doesn't 3G take less power than 2G?
