    Your network should be able to put a total block on. I'm not sure how you can do it selectively on the handset.

    Perhaps this app? I haven't used it myself so can't vouch for it, but a firewall seems to be the sort of thing you are after and the reviews of this one aren't bad. Also this one seems to offer app by app control rather than the usual SMS/MMS control that these things typically offer.

    Downside is that it required root. Other downside is that it is unclear whether it works on rooted froyo. But apart from that...

    APNdroid can do this apparently.

    so what about holding of power button and when menu pops out choose mobile network and to switch it to OFF or put one of power widgets on - widgets- add widget-settings widget - mobile network widget and there is no need for APNdroid and you can easily toggle on or off whenever you need

    36mb wont last long on browsing and email - seeing as most webpages are over 1mb a go.

    I hope your phone company doesnt charge much for every mb over!

    No, they're not. Most pages are about 2-10kB and then you have images which can vary a lot. A typical forum page is ~500kB but once you have common avatars cached that comes down a lot.
