Toggle Cell


*** THIS APP IS NO LONGER BEING ENHANCED OR MAINTAINED ***

Automatically disable the cell antenna on your device when connected to specific WiFi networks. This application allows you to select which configured WiFi networks should toggle the cell antenna on your phone -- disabling the antenna when connected, and re-enabling the antenna when disconnected.

This application was designed for the Republic Wireless Motorola Moto X. The aggressive WiFi to cell hand-off is problematic for users with a very weak cell signal. In these cases it is desirable to disable the cell antenna and rely entirely on the WiFi that is available.

Although this was specifically designed for the RW Moto X, it may be of use on other devices; however, it has not been tested on other devices.

Recent changes:
v2.1.0
Enhancement: For Republic Wireless customers subscribed to the $5 plan, added setting to disable cell regardless of Wi-Fi connection.

Works most of the time Using Moto g and moto es as tablets with much success. Occasionally the cell modem turns on and I have to reboot.

This app does indeed reduce battery usage for the Cell standby but does not turn it off completly. I calculated that the Cell standby's battery usage is reduced by 33% which is a good start. On the other hand, the interface of the app sucks, the text is black on dark grey background which makes it near impossible to read. I have the default theme on my phone which was reset just yesterday.

I don't think this is going to work on Lollipop (android 5.1). I used to use this all the time to prevent call handover to a poor cell signal and to save battery while at home and work. After I updated to Lollipop the cell signal remains on. Mcollins please come back and help us Republic Wireless users. Thank you for making this simple and useful app.
