    any way to turn off mobile network?

    I have wifi access at home and almost everywhere on campus(still a student), so I can live without mobile network(3G or not).

    When I was using HTC Hero I can just turn off the mobile network so I don't have to pay for data and I don't have a data plan on my cell phone contract.

    Now with Nexus One I can't find the option to turn it off... Does somebody know how to turn it off?

    menu -> settings -> wireless & Network settings
    airplane mode (tick)
    wifi (tick)
    wifi setting -> connect to your desired wifi

    Thank you...but in this way I wouldn't be able to make phone calls...

    Here is what I did:

    I just called AT&T asking them to ban my mobile data.
    from now on I won't see any data usage on my phone bill.

    or you can simply remove all Access Point Names!
    this will allow phone calls

    You said you called AT&T and got it taken care of, so this is now academic, but since you're on AT&T and this phone can't use AT&T's 3G data, you could have just applied the setting to only use 3G. Even if in a T-Mobile 3G covered area, I don't think your data would go through (but if I'm wrong, I'd like to know).

    Download "APNdroid" from the market it will let you disable cell data completely and you will save allot more battery life.

    Perfect, just what I was looking for, as I don't have a data plan yet.

    I have a problem with APNdroid :
    When I click on the green underlined ''ON'' icon under 3G/EDGE/GPRS, it doesn't change for ''OFF'' (I suppose it's supposed to change for that)
    Any idea why? (I didn't activated it yet but I'll do on monday and since I won't be taking a data plan, I want to be sure it won't connect to internet through cell towers)

    Thanks.

    'All' APNDroid does is make a change to the APN name, so if you're worried, you can DIY it.
