    You can check to see if your network is on by sliding your notification bar down and go into quick settings to see if it's on or you can activate airplane mode, but this will also cause you not to be able to receive calls either but will shut off all wireless connections.

    Actually you did it correctly. Most (if not all) Android phones have this option. "Turn off data traffic" it is called. You only disable data traffic through network (3G) but you can still use your phone normally to call send txt etc...
    You can also set a widget on your screen to quickly turn on/off data traffic. Press and hold an empty area on the screen => Widgets => Data traffic.

    Cheers!
