Turning off all data messaging

I have 3 phones on a family plan and every time I upgrade a phone I start getting text messages when I have gone through great pains to have all text messages turned off. Now I'm getting charged for them.  What can I do to stop this from happening again?

Settings => General => Network
Ensure Data Roaming is Off.
It won't access data services when abroad. It will notify you if you try to telling you it is off.

  • Nokia Lumia 610 How to turn off all data roaming ...

    I've read in other forums that it's not enough to turn off data roaming.  Apparently apps that use the internet will turn roaming back on in Windows phones.  Can anyone offer a complete and definitive list of instructions for turning roaming off abroad?  I would prefer to be able to access wifi hotspots so don't want to simply turn on airplane mode.  Thanks.

    Could you let us know which forum and what apps?

  • Turning off all data roaming?

    Hi guys,
    I'm going abroad this Friday and I want to make absolutely sure that even if someone opens Safari on my iPhone, that it won't connect to Edge over there because I don't want to pay the ridiculous data charges.
    Does anyone know how I can do this?

  • How to turn off all data connections?

    hi
    im have an N95 8gb on o2 and im happy to let it connect to o2 as often as it can via O2 active/web as im on an unlimited data plan...however i go to the USA once a week and even though i disconnect the data connection, sometimes i look at the phone and it has connected overseas, meaning a huge roaming data charge, is there anyway i can set it to never connect then manually change it back when im in the UK again
    thanks

    Most applications allow you to set the way it accesses the network (E.G. When Needed, or when available) also under Tools->Settings->COnnection->Packet data you can select this.
    Also you have to do it for each individual application like Email, Maps, Browser or other ones you may have.

  • Going overseas turning off all unnecessary data updates

    We're going overseas and have read we should turn off all unnecessary data updates. What would one turn off? Any advise would be appreciated. Thanks

    Very good question, as too many people don't ask it and are confronted with huge bills coming home from a holiday.
    The answer of wjosten is applicable when you don't want to make or to be able to receive calls or send/receive SMS messages. In short: you'll use your iPhone at WIFI spots to access the internet.
    If would like to remain reachable and be able to make calls I recommend your turn off all data usage through telephony networks when abroad, which you can do in Settings -> General -> Network -> Data Roaming
    Note that generally when abroad you'll pay when answering a call and, optionally, receiving an SMS. Your service provider should be able to provide with the rates for this, as well as the rates for making a call or sending an SMS from the country you're in.
    To check your e-mail and browse the web follow the advice of wjosten and look for WIFI networks on you destination. Even if they're not free, they are for sure cheaper than using the telephone network via your iPhone.

  • Turning off all battery draining services but keeping phone reception?

    Is it possible to switch off all the services that drain batter life such as GPRS, EDGE, WI-FI etc etc etc with one switch and still keeping your phone reception. I know you can turn the phone on Airplane Mode but this loses your phone reception.
    Also, can i ask. Does airplane mode turn off everything i mentioned above?

    Airplane Mode turns off:
    * All data types (WiFi, Edge, 3G, and GPRS) (WiFi can be turned on manually)
    * Your telephone service
    * Bluetooth
    * Location Services
    It doesn't turn off music and videos or local games. Games that use high definition or applications like Navigon use the most power drain.

  • It's my understanding that when traveling overseas, all i have to do is turn off cellular data to avoid high data charges.

    it's my understanding that when traveling overseas, all i have to do is turn off cellular data to avoid high data charges.

    With Airplane Mode you will not receive phone calls.  If you are just worried about Data Charges then just go to Settings>Cellular>Data 'Off'  This may also turn your iMessage off such that all your iMessages even in a WiFi environment go out as Text Messages.  If you still want to use iMessage from Apple device to Apple device in a WiFi network then go to Settings>Messages> and turn it back on after you have set Cellular Data to Off.  Ckuan is correct though about having some per minute received or outgoing call and text charges.  For one example, if you were traveling in Canada but didn't have a Canada Plan you would pay about 89 cents per minute and 50 cents per send / receive Text.

  • I have put Ipod in restore mode and about 1/2 way through download it goes back to message "disabled type in passcode" ?? I have turned off all security and all trouble shooting ideas, any suggestions?? besides paying $$$$ to apple tech support

    I have put Ipod in restore mode and about 1/2 way through download it goes back to message "disabled type in passcode" ?? I have turned off all security and tried all trouble shooting ideas, any suggestions?? besides paying $$$$ to apple tech support

    What appears to be happensin is that before the actual download finishes/restore starts. the recovery mode is timing out. I would do a manual download using the instructions here:
    iDevice Troubleshooting 101 :: iPhone, iPad, iPod touch
    Then place the iPod in Recovery mode and restore using the instructions in the link.

  • How to turn off all cellular service (not just data) without airplane mode?

    Hi,
    I work in a lab where cell service is minimal.  In iOS8, can we turn off all cellular service (not just cellular data) without using airplane mode?  It would also be helpful to be able to keep GPS on with all cell service turned off when hiking.
    Thanks,
    Matt

    Unfortunately, no. To turn off cellular service, requires the device to be put into Airplane Mode, which also turns off the GPS receiver.

  • How do you turn off cellular data on Ipad Air 2 with IOS 8.1.2

    We have three new iPad Air 2s within the family. All have wi-fi capability but we are not needing to suscribe to it at this time, plan to use it on trips away from home. All of them get a popup message every 1-2 hours reminding to select a cellular plan. If it were only asking to select a cellular carrier I would understand, but when you do that it requires you to select a plan and add payment info for it. We are not ready to do that at this time. There is no "off" button on the cellular setting as there is on the iPhone. Is there a way to turn off the constant reminders to add a cellular plan?

    There is no option to not sign up for the data plan.  I just returned from the Apple Genius Bar and my genius said the only way to stop the message now is to remove the SIM card, but be sure to keep it in a safe place for when I want to activate Cellular.  The change from the older iPads is that the pre-installed SIM is a generic one that will work with ATT, TMobile and Verizon.  In the past you selected your carrier when you purchased the iPad and their dedicated SIM card was installed.  I really dislike this solution, especially keeping up with the itsy bitsy SIM card and having it readily available when I need it.  I did try a temporary solution mentioned in another thread to tell Siri to turn off Cellular Data.  She will do it, but it resets when you reboot the iPad.  That is preferable to me than removing and keeping up with the SIM card.

  • I have ios 7 and lately when im turning off cellular data for some apps when i leave settings and go back in they have turned on back again by themselves. It appears as if i cant turn off cellular data for the apps i want. Any tips?

    I have ios 7 and lately when i go to settings-cellular and try to turn off cellular data for some apps it doesnt work. As i turn off cellular data for one app immideately after i exit settings and re-enter settings cellular data for that same app goes back on again by itself. That happens for most of my apps and is reqlly annoying. Whats more annoying is that when i am not using wifi even though the settings for cellular data for safari or facebook or some other app are turned on (since i cant turn them off as i mentioned) i get the message that cellular data is turned off for this app and i cant use the internet at all on cellular data. I have reset to factory settings and restored from backup and the problem persists. Is there some help or tips you can offer me?

    Did you get anywhere with this? I'm considering wiping it and setting it up as a new device.
