Permanently disable data connection?

Is there a reg edit that will disable the data connection on my TP so that programs such as TF3D won't turn it on automagically? I have been contemplating doing away with my data connection as I am always in range of wifi, my average over the last 3 months was 400kb data usage.

Re: Permanently disable data connection?

You'd best do it from the Sprint side of things (data block); every time I see a complaint about massive overage charges it seems the poor person "tried to block data on the phone" but something ended up connecting in the background when they were traveling in outer Siberia and the roaming charges required taking out a home equity line of credit just to cover the interest.

I will pre-echo the common sentiment that to have a TP, the highest-end WM smartphone in Sprint's lineup, without a data plan is sort of like buying a car and taking the wheels off. Yes, you still have a car, but what's the point. I know, you said you never use it...surprising to me, but whatever works!

Verizon here, is there a way to data block with them? If so I will just do that. I really only use the phone for texting, I got a hell of a deal on the phone. I thought I might end up using the data for web and stuff but have not used it. Thanks to both posts.

Re: Permanently disable data connection?

VWZ im sure can block it.... however with the cab, you can just uninstall if you wanted to use your data connection...

if you use VZW to block it, now youll have to call them, if you ever wanna use your reg data again

Verizon will not block data to a TP, it is a required part of the plan for that phone (+ with a data block you cannot send/receive picture messages)

Hmm everybody says they will, I am going to ask when I go up there today to pay the bill. I don't use MMS so there isn't any point in having the data. Just text, and some of the PDA features of the phone.

Re: Permanently disable data connection?

i wondered that myself when i was posting my last response...

about the whole a data plan is required... now you may be able to block it through them, but they may make you keep the data plan on your statement...

Modaco Nodata was no good, it doesn't seem to work on the verizon TP. As the TF3D weather and stock tabs were able to activate the data connection automatically.
