    Aside from the airplane mode, is there anyway else to turn off the data Fully and turn it back on at my discretion. I'm on the basic Data Plan, 50MB for full month. I use WI-FI all the time when needed, and only want to use my 50MB for emergencies or finding an address, phone number on the go. The Droid doesn't have it :( I've turned off Background Data, Sync, and even GPS Satellite, and it still leaking data.

    I read somewhere that the new OS Update for the Moto Droid will have that Kill Switch Option like the Incredible and the ERIS, but who knows when that will come out. Anyone know any Apps, any settings that does this?

    It says Firmware Version

    2.1-update1

    How do I get the 2.2 Firmware? Is it the official release, or Beta?

    You have to root your Droid to update to 2.2 because Google hasn't released 2.2 yet. Also, the android 2.2 that many developers are using isn't built from source so its still experimental; use at your own risk.

    What device do you have?

    If it's a Droid you have Unlimited Data.

    No you can't. If you really want to update to 2.2 I would read up on rooting.

    Some threads to help you:
