    I am going on a 3 country motorcycle tour for the next 2 weeks and would like to turn off the Automatic Downloads on Market while on the road due to roaming data costs.:mad:

    Can anyone tell me how to do this as I've searched for a while and the only way I found to do this was one at a time in Market but would rather do this all at once then switch it on when I return...

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You can turn off Background Data via the accounts and sync, that should work (I think).

    You can also switch off data whilst roaming. Settings -> Wireless & Networks -> Mobile Networks -> Data Roaming.

    I don't want to disable it completely just the automatic updating from the market. I guess I'll need to play with it or un-check all the apps one at a time...
