    If you mean updating apps from Google Playstore, you can easily disable this feature. Open "Play Store", go to the menu (slide your finger from the left edge to the center of the screen). Then in Settings, the first option allows to update only via Wifi or not update automatically at all.

    thank you for the reply, will look at this later this evening, its a brand its a brand new phone, and i dont want if updating goolge/address book/ etc etc the phone is ook as it is, but if continually it searches the internet as soon as it it turned on, then it will have to go, it drained my internet package the first night of purchase, so eager to see when it renews jan 27th how long my internet useage is present.
    I dont do games or video or facebook on the phone, just text an calls. But thank you for your comments.

    Ok, remember you can always keep "Mobile Data" disabled. Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016) come with Android 5.1.1, so you can slide your finger from the top edge to the center of the screen and open the Android shortcuts. Be sure that "Mobile Data" it's not enabled. Doing that, your phone it's not going to use any kind of internet package from your operator. This is very useful when you are in any place that have WiFi, so you use that and not the "Mobile Data".
    If you are in the street and need to use the "Mobile Data" enable it and remember disable it later.

    Do not worry, if you turn off mobile data and change "Google Playstore" settings, as I said in my first post, your Internet package will be safe. Those 2 apps were probably updated via WiFi (yours or another WiFi without password in the area).
    You can always check your credit / internet package to be sure.

    If you open "Google Playstore", go to the Menu and select the "My Apps and Games" option. There you can see which applications was updated.

    There is a time of adaptation when using any new technology, so there is no shame in asking any question. ;)
