    I wanted to surf the web and I couldn't figure out how to turn WiFi on. I remember shutting it off to save the battery. I could not find the bar that turns on/off: WiFi, BT, Sound, Brightness. Where does it hide? I went to the Main Menu, scrollled left and then back to Main menu and scrolled right. I did not see it so I started touch this and that; sudenly it appeared. Is there an easy way of finding the WiFi On/Off switch?

    Menu > Settings > Wireless and Networks. Check / uncheck WiFi box.

    if you dont want the whole power control widget you can search the market for "curvefish" and they make individual widgets for everything the power control widget has plus other things. beautiful widgets also has these to.

    If you use Quick Profiles (which is a very handy and free app to make lots of settings changes all at once - like making everything loud in your car, everything quiet for work, and medium loudness for normal situations), you can make a profile that just turns Wifi On, Wifi Off, or just toggle the current Wifi State.

    Very handy for lots of reasons, but for the wifi radio too.
