I tried searching all over the internet(and of course, on the phone itself first), but I can't seem to find a way to block the device from using data transfers?
I am changing my service provider and this phone is from them, but until my current contract goes out, I have to use the previous SIM and it doesn't have unlimited data transfer. It's like 4 euros per 10 megabytes or something, so I REALLY don't want the phone using data on it's own.
Right now, it's pretty much just like an iTouch or something, it cannot function as a phone, I can only keep it on if it's in "Flight Mode". At first I thought being near a WiFi(like at home) I can let it be, but no.. If I don't touch the phone for a while, it switches off the WiFi on it's own and starts using data transfers over my service provider, costing me money every time it does that. So, I have to turn it off. It's not a cellphone..
How the hell can this function at all without unlimited data transfers? Also, in about 2 weeks I will go to Hungary and stay there for quite a while. If I can't block this crap, then I can't even take it with me. I need a PHONE with me and data transfers from Hungary would give me a 200000000€ phonebill.
So, please.. Anyone? I want to keep the phone, but if I can't stop it from doing this, it's just an unusable piece of plastic.
(Note: Data roaming is off, it doesn't care. Use only 2G networks is ticked, it doesn't care, still uses 3g for data. In location and security use wireless networks and use GPS satellites are both ticked off, it does not care, does it anyway. In accounts and sync background data and auto-sync are turned off, does NOT care.. uses data transfers anyway...)
