Default Issue in APN-GSM disabling

Hi, I am using “India-chennai-Airtel” service on my phone, where for internet connectivity I have 3G GPRS settings which were received from Airtel.


Since I don’t want to have internet to be continuously ON, I want to disable the APN whenever I needed. In order to make this happen I have created new APN with Invalid details with APN name as “disable” and this method works good for me for some days but now even if I select invalid APN settings, my phone is getting paired to the internet so I couldn’t disable the internet access whenever I needed,


Kindly suggest me how to make this happen.

On this phone you don't need to create a fake APN, if you want to disable the mobile 2G/3G internet all you have to do is go Menu>Settings>Wireless & networks>Mobile Networks>Data Enabled. Un-check this option whenever you want to disable the internet on your phone.

It could be setup that way by your phone service provider. I'd suggest to contact them to confirm if there is a different solution that you could try.
