    Disabling data but still being able to receive calls/texts

    I'm new to this forum but I had a question and I was wondering if anyone could help. I just ordered the Nexus S and have the 200 mb data plan for t-mobile. Is it possible for me to disable data on the phone, yet still be able to make calls/receive calls, send/receive texts? I want to primarily use wifi and only use t-mobile's 3g when I choose to do so. My question pertains to whether or not I can still call/text or receive calls/texts if i have 3g disabled and do not have wifi connected. Please help, any input is greatly appreciated. Thanks

    If you disable your data you will be able to do voice calls and send SMS, but you will not be able to send MMS even if your connected to WiFi that's because all MMS must use the carriers data service.

    You can accomplish this in 2 ways.

    1. Stats is a app that will disable you data automatically when you reach you limit.

    2. Widgetsoid is a highly customizable Widget to put on your desktop.
