    With Froyo 2.2, there is a setting that you can use to turn off mobile data.



    1. Press Menu.

    2. Touch Settings.

    3. Touch Wireless & Networks.

    4. Touch Mobile Networks.

    5. Uncheck Data Enabled.



    Any app that tries to get data from the web will not be able to. It even stopped my news and weather widget from updating.



    Just check this box when you need some data and uncheck it when you don't.



    Note: I don't know if this option was there in 2.1 but I don't remember seeing it.

    I don't mean to sound dumb, but what exactly does this mean? Wouldn't I have to turn this on every time I use the internet? Is this any relation to the data plan for each phone? I thought when you had an Ally, we all had to have an unlimited data plan with VZ. Is this the same thing or something completely different? Thx in advance.

    When I got my Ally, the Verizon rep told me unlimited data plan is mandatory for all smartphones so I got it w my LG Ally purchase.

    Hmmmm...was this something that happened when the Ally first came out? I got it back in July and I was told that I had to have an unlimited data plan.

    I kind of was joking with this. Don't know that anyone has a limited data plan. Sorry for the confusion.

    When the Ally first came out Verizon was making it mandatory for everyone to get the unlimited plan but around Sept they started pushing their limited plan. I think it is 300 MB for $15. Will have to check when I get home.

    I believe you are right that they allowed the limited data plan starting around September 2010. I got my Ally in December and got the limited data plan with 150 MB for $15/month. However, as of Feburary 1 2011 the "promotional" limited data plan has been eliminated and you have to get the $30/month data plan.
