Default How to disable data usage?

Is there a way to completely disable data usage? I'm with koodo so if i use like 100kb or something, i get charged $5. I don't wanna disable data through koodo cause then i wont get to uses my unlimited picture text. So is there a way to completely disable data via the phone settings? The problem is that sometimes when i put my phone in my pocket, it will enable certain features including data. Maybe there's an app that can help me? I heard 3G Watchdog might but i don't see a disabling option. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I don't have a data plan so I'll try my best to help you, but I can't guarantee anything.

I'm using a Gingerbread custom ROM, so it might not be the same for you, but you should go in the settings, wireless & network, Mobile networks and then you should untick "Data Enabled".

You might have to enable it again to send/receive MMS messages, I'm not sure.

just goto settings>wireless & networks>and disable data/roaming and all..
if i remember correctly you even have a switch to turn it off when u drop down ur notifications.. its the one with 2 arrows (most usually)..
tap to disable, tap to enable

Beside disabling the data access etc, I create a dummy APN.
than delete the APN from your telco.

But ..... don't under estimate the power of the Telco, they have ability to restore their APN setup and set it as the default APN.

If the telco allows, you may want to ask them to disable GPRS on your number. but I think that will impact receivind MMS too.

This works for a while but something is turning the data enable back on and I can't find out what. The text to speech won't work on messaging unless I'm in wifi so if it starts to work out of a wifi, I check the data enable and sure enough it's back on. no idea how. any wise one know whats starting it up again. I can't send picture messages with it off, but if i leave it on all the stupid background updates use up data and I don't have a plan (and don't want one) so the background stuff cost me $20 already this month.

Go to settings>wireless & networks>wifi>push menu hardware button>Advanced>set wifi sleep policy to Never. That's it!
