Default Gio keeps on Accessing Data when not in use

I have a rooted Samsung Gio that for some reason will try and access data even when locked and sleeping. I have data disabled and I only use wifi when needed.

Is there anyway to turn data compeltely off till I need to use it?

Yes there is. Go to settings>Wireless and Networks>Mobile Networks
Then uncheck all the options : Use packet data and Data Roaming

Already tried that. It will reenable and try to access it.

Through trial and error I found out that it was Easy Battery Saver which was constantly firing up the data connection when waking up the phone or when a program tried to use it. I turned the data off and disabled the apps abilityt to control it and it seems all is well.

I will keep you posted.

So unchecking both options doesn't let the data run at all unless you allow it to? (by opening an app, for example).

I have this issue too and was questioning what I was doing wrong.

From my experience, even though I unchecked it, Easy Battery Saver kept on enabling it when it was coming off of sleep when I unlocked the phone to use it.

Turning off the data control by that app solved the problem.

I don't have that app so doing the above mentioned should work, right?

Yes, unless you have a power saving app that is constantly enabling it.

Ah. Thanks. I followed the instructions from multiple posts and disabled such and such. Hopefully that works on my end.

One more thing: and I apologize for the annoyance. Now that the little H icon with the arrows pointing up and down are gone, that means that the data isn't being used unless I enable it or hop on my Wi-Fi?

Yes, if those are gone, data is gone. You can also disable data through the press and hold of the top right external button and turning off data as well.

I just upgraded from a 6 year old flip phone to a Galaxy Gio.

This thread and forum are going to be a huge help lol.

Thanks to everyone for the advice offered.

I haven't been this n00b since I got my first PC lol.
