DataSwitch

DataSwitch


DataSwitch is a simple app that toggles mobile data (edge/2G/3G/4G) access. Small, terminates itself, not a widget and doesn't consume resources once it's done.

The app uses a direct method of turning data on/off instead of changing the APN settings and appears to be more effective on some phones like my Samsung Captivate (Galaxy S).

Notes:
* Be aware that if you used another app that changes the APN to turn off data, you will need to use the same app to turn it back on.
* If you're currently connected via WiFi, it may detect the mobile data as disabled which means the app will always try to enable it.
* Seems to work for Honeycomb (emulator), but untested on a real device.

If you like this app, please try Data Switch Pro :-)

Syluch, the lack of E/3G/4G on notification bar only indicates that it's off at that time.Does not confirm that it's blocked from turning on. Duh

DANGEROUS APP. MAY DAMAGE YOUR PHONE. DO NOT INSTALL. DO NOT USE. Mobile data connection stopped working after installation and could not be restored. HTC Desire, Android 2.2.

Loved it before the latest lollipop version upgrade. Now it doesn't work at all! Very disappointed.

doesn't seem to work on android 5.0. it says functions to turn mobile data on and off aren't available... but it does do one interesting (but completely useless, AFAICT) thing: if I'm connected to wifi, it makes my mobile data connection connect as well, so both are active at the same time.
