    Switching off data.

    I've recently needed to stop data usage on my S4. I've switched off data, and background usage, but once a week still seem to be incurring unexpected data charges. Can anyone suggest what this might be and how to prevent it? Thank you.

    Welcome to the forum

    Under settings - connection - mobile networks - if Mobile Data is not checked it should not work. This may vary by phone *carrier"

    Welcome to the forum, you can also put it in airplane mode when you're not using it which turns all the radios off.

    Yeah the problem with AP mode is that it cuts off the WiFi as well as the data but I just thought of another possibility. Who is your carrier?

    You can turn wifi back on after switching to airplane mode. And the built in data usage monitor in settings should tell you what's been eating your data.

    with only 200 M of 4G I leave data off except when I need it and use wifi. But if I check my mobile data use on the phone in settings it turns 4G back on. This has caused some unexpected 4G use.

    Install an app called Onavo Count to alert you and check usage.

    Airplane mode also turns off cellular radios, then it's not a phone anymore.
