    I am traveling and without a local SIM I want to turn OTA Data off. I am at a place where WiFi is working.

    How do I turn the Date via the phone network off?

    I assume that R over my signal strength bands means Roaming - but does that just mean I am not on my home (SIM Card) network?

    Or is it more?

    I'm sure this has been asked but couldn't find it.

    Thanks in advance.

    I'm not sure how much different the Desire is but for me its this...

    Menu > settings > wireless and network > mobile networks > and I have an option to check/uncheck 3G data.

    You should have an option to turn it off somewhere in there, might be a lil difference in the settings on your phone vs mine though.

    You can also hold down the power button and when the menu appears just tap on Mobile Network. This will turn it off.
