C2-01 how to switch off mobile data

I bought the C2-01 as a simple no-nonsense phone but it is driving me up the wall at the moment because I am unable to permanently disable it from accidentally using costly data  when fat figures hit the internet, OVI, facebook etc buttons.


I have checked out  other appropriate messages and have already tried the following.

  • handset is using the latest software
  • under connectivity- packet data conn. settings I have set it as 'when needed', although the fact that it does not have a 'never connect' or 'disable' option is a serious omission in my opinion.
  • under configuration I have set up all the relevant dummy personal configuration settings and dummy preferred access points as default settings.

In spite of this whenever I test the internet connection or Ovi applications, it still connects over the mobile data network using costly data.

Please help, there must be a way to permanently disable mobile data use.

Re: C2-01 how to switch off mobile data

Yes I have worked through that solution.


The configuration settings are currently showing as:

Default config. sett.  - ' Personal config.'

Preferred acces pt.  - 'dummy'. where dummy is the name of the blank access point I created under Personal config setting

I have also set up a dummy web account under Persoinal config setting, which is set to use the preferred access point.

Yet it still automatically connects to GPRS.

Any other suggestions?
