    I hope someone could help me! I have a Samsung S2 tablet WiFi only. Sometime when I'm out I would love to use my mobile phones 3g Internet to check emails etc. However I can't find a way to restrict background or any unwanted data...
    The tablet runs 5.0.2 and all restrict background data buttons in settings are greyed out. I can connect to my smartphone fine but there is no way to filter Internet access, for example yesterday when tethered the tablet started to update some apps downloading huge chunks of data. I can't afford that!

    Please help?
