    Hi all, sorry if this has been asked before, I've had my Samsung Galaxy X for a whole of about 3 hours now, just tried out the internet on it. Awesome. loved it. Sorted my wi fi out etc.. Only problem is, I've turned Wi Fi off now but the 3g internet is still on and uploading and downloading when I am not even on a website. Can anyone please tell me how the heck I turn it off? I cant afford a massive bill!

    Thanks

    It might just be polling the carrier for texts, updates etc. You can disable the 3G if you want to and force it to only use 2G...

    Hi everyone...In order to disable the service provider internet temporarily on your Samsung Galaxy S & for using Wifi only , you need to do the following :

    Goto SETTINGS > WIRELESS & NETWORK > MOBILE NETWORKS > ACCESS POINT NAMES

    Once you are there inside " ACCESS POINT NAMES " & if you see that there are more than 2 fields , for e.g APN(mms) , APN(Internet) , delete the APN for internet & let the APN(mms) stay at its place.Once you are done with it , no more worries to lose your prepaid money.The 3G / G sign will automatically disappears from the top just besides the battery bar.If you want to restore the APN (Internet) again , you can follow this path :

    Goto SETTING > WIRELESS & NETWORKS > MOBILE NETWORKS > ACCESS POINT NAMES

    Once you are in the " ACCESS POINT NAMES " field , click the left navigation tab on your mobile & then click " NEW APN " & start entering the values for the following fields : ( I am using optus so the values to be entered by you might could differ from mine since you might could be with some other service provider like Vodafone etc , anyways its a good idea to note down the by default values & then to proceed to delete them or to delete the entire APN-Internet )


    NAME = NONE ( Optus internet ; by default )
    APN = NONE ( yesinternet ; by default)
    MCC = NONE (505 ; by default)
    MNC = NONE (02 ; by default)
    AUTHENTICATION TYPE = NONE (PAP ; by default)

    Enjoy folks !

    Or just use APNdroid from marked like mention earlier in this thread. It does excactly what you wrote. (it renames the APN) I use it to toggle on / off internet with the widget that comes with the app
