Notsure LG Optimus GT540

Is there any way to block this phone's installed Apps from accessing the internet via any other means other than WiFi?

I'm bleeding credit like a stuck pig; the amount of times an app has popped up and I didn't have the wifi on and it connected to the 3g/phone provider's internet access...

I don't even know which apps have to connect to the web to be used or that automatically update on boot, so I have to have the wifi on any time I start any app.

Any help?
