    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.

    Curvefish programs are quite awesome. I use their Silent On/Off, Brightness Level and Wi-Fi On/Off. I also use Ultra Keyboard (for my big gorilla fingers), Handcent SMS (I applied for the "gold" membership allowing me to backup SMS/MMS/Settings to my SD card and their servers which was like 8 bux) thought the program itself is totally free. I use Alfred for my SMS away messages (I bought Siesta Text, which I really liked, but it kept taking my phone out of silent mode even when not "away". I'll be looking into that later). I use Catch for my notes, AlarmDroid for my alarms, Juice Defender for my battery saver along with SetCPU and AutoKiller (using the "Aggressive" preset. I just tonight (06/01/2011) rooted my Droid 1 (version 2.2.2 build FRG83G) very quickly and hassle free. I used PDAnet to successfully tether my computer to my phone using 3G as my internet source. Also my phone is running lightning fast now!

    Currently trying to find an app that will allow me to edit the icon titles and/or the icons themselves!

    Any comments/questions, please feel free to contact me.
