    Hello,
    I'm a new droid user and have tried desperately to disable all data connections. I'm without a data plan so I feel very unsafe just going on the net or using the apps I downloaded, afraid that it might accidentally use data connections.
    I've tried disabling the 2G network, data roaming, background data (what is it anyway) and even going to the key pad, typing *#*#4636#*#* to disable the data connection and data on boot up. I'm left with disabling the APN but don't know how to. And the thing that worries me is that I am unable to go to the Android Market because I will need to enable the background data which I'm afraid that will cause $. And also, I don't know if doing all that will be effective. Please help! (-:
    Thank you!
    P.S I'm using Milestone btw.

    Use APNDroid.

    Why the heck would you buy an Android phone without a data plan? These phones are made to be connected to the internet 24x7.

    'Quick settings', free on the market, also lets you disable data connections. If you google it a bit you'll find there are other apps and widgets to do the same, too.
