Dont know if this has been asked before.. but is there a way to turn off your phone's signal? Not airplane mode, since airplane mode turns off wifi as well.

You can do this with AnyCut. Choose "Activity" and then add a shortcut to Phone Info. Right near the bottom, there is an option to turn off the radio.

Huh?

Press and hold the red End button for a few seconds. Select "Power Off".

Turn off phone radio, but not the device itself. That way you can still use the other features

LOL! Im sure RueTheDay was excercising a bit of sacasm there... Of course he didnt mean the device all together

Go to the Market and search "APNdroid"
May not turn off the radio completely but it comes in handy if you're annoyed by the random push/pull activity and constant edge/3g network flux (depending on your location) that contributes to a faster battery drain.

Havent figured out yet how u still recieve SMS while its enabled.

I set it at work when i dont use the networks and Ive noticed signifigant difference in battery life. Seems like the next best thing to holding that power button

I actually need to turn off the phone's radio when I go to sleep, but want to keep my device on because I use it as an alarm clock
