C5-03 How to turn off data

I am using a C5-03 as my company phone and the company phone plane doesn't include data. May I know how to turn off the data connectivity such that there is no chance ever of me accidentally going on 3G internet networks/GPS/any data transfers at all? Thanks!

Hi Sergent,

 

Thank you for your help! I've turned off the 3G according to your instructions, but I've found that my phone is still sending and receving GPRS MMS from some of the apps. Is there any way to turn that off as well? Thanks in advance!

If you want to remove the possibility to use mobile date you can delete the accesspoint from MENU>Settings>Connectivity>Destinations>Internet then select the accesspoint and Options>delete.

 

For this to work the accesspoint must not be active so it might be required to switch to the offline profile by tapping the on/off button and then select and activate the 'offline' profile. Activate the 'general' profile after removal of the accesspoint. You can still use WLAN where available after removing the mobile data accesspoint.

Hi Kosh,

 

I noticed that under Destinations, I also have access points under Multimedia Message that I am unable to delete, presumably because they were installed by the retailer. May I know if there is any way (like changing the homepage, access point name, etc) that can disable it? Thanks!

Hi,

 

You should be able to remove these in the same way, but you will have to make sure your phone is using the offline profile when you do so, else these may be locked.

I've changed it to offline, but there was still no 'delete' option. Will changing the specifications/settings of the access points make them unable to function? Thanks!

Yes, but you may get an error when an application tries to access the connection. 

 

Make sure that with the accesspoint selected your press the options button which should show the delete option when it opens.
