Since there are two APNs: "2degrees Internet" and "2degrees MMS", can I disable/delete the former in order to prevent any mobile data usage while still being able to receive MMS?

It probably depends on your handset, but otherwise, yes.




iPad Air + iPhone SE + 2degrees 4tw!

These comments are my own and do not represent the opinions of 2degrees.

You don't mention what platform the phone is, but I tried this strategy on my son's Android without any luck...still chewed through the data.

I went in a different direction and installed an app called NoRoot Data Firewall which allows selective blocking of apps for use of wifi and/or cellular data. I then just disabled all cellular data except for Messaging app.

Seems to have worked well.
