Sadly, you can't turn it off :smileysad:
You need to either delete whatsapp or the settings. Don't delete them, just select a new set of settings which are for a different operator and it will not be able to connect.

Hi ady_303,


Thank you for posting and welcome to the forum. :smileyhappy:


Turning the packet data completely off is not possible unless you're going to remove the packet data settings completely off the phone. However, in order for you to avoid unecessary charges, try to remove the whatsapp or any live widget (e.g social apps such as facebook or twitter, or even weather application) from the homescreen of your device. Since these are applications that require internet connection, if set on the homescreen, it'll continuously get live feeds and updates which means, it'll be using your data.
