Hi

I have a LG smart Android phone. I use it on WiFi at home but only want it for texting when I am out. How can I stop this phone from eating into my 2Degrees prepay money when I am out.

I want to restrict it to Texting only.

Thank you

Depending on which model phone and version of android you are using it will general be found in;

Settings > wireless and networks > mobile networks > untick mobile data

IIRC You can also ring 2degrees customer service and get them to disable mobile data as well?
It may also stop MMS as well?
