    So i just picked up a unlocked a moto cliq.. my concern is that i have never had a data plan on my account (at&t). this phone seems to have alot of different apps and widgets updating themselfs continuosly.. i have no problem with while im at home beacuse of my wifi that i can connect to.. but when im not on a wifi connection it seems to still be updating.. which i dont want until i upgrade my plan to unlimited data.. How do i turn off these features or turn off data/ internet acess all together when im not on a wifi connection???

    get a diff phone. all smart phones require a data plan because all carriers are douche bags and want to run the economy even more dry than it already is. because they can.

    You should be able to shut off the 3G connection entirely. If you go into "Settings" and the "Wireless and Networks" uncheck the "Mobile Network"

    I'm not really sure if this is different on a phone with MOTOBLUR (that's what the Cliq has, right?) but hopefully that will work for you.
