    Dear, Readers,
    Here a new Samsung GT-i9023 Nexus S phone.
    When I keep it in standby (i.e. not completely off ) I get a lot of unnecessary downloads, such as news, youtube-heders, weather, news.(this costs me a lot of unnecessary download bits and bytes)

    How can I completely shutoff these for me unnecessary downloads,
    but the phone should be still open for incoming phone calls ????


    Thank you all for reading this

    I just got my Telus Nexus S. Under Settings - Wireless & Networks - Mobile networks-Data enabled I just uncheck this box. You will still get calls but no data can be up'd / down. :eek:

    You can actually turn these widgets off since they are not activated when you first use the phone. The user is who activates them. If you want to turn off data and still get call and text use this.
    https://market.android.com/details?id=net.maicas.android.apnoo&feature=order_history

    Very easy to use. press once to turn off data and once more to turn it back on. Also drag the news widget off the screen and you can stop having youtube sync up by turning it off in settings and accounts.
