    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.
