    Hey guys,

    New to 'these' forums, New to the 'Epix' but not new to technology.

    Is there ANY way to completely disable all network data usage on the Samsung Epix??

    I don't have a data plan. Somebody else pays our cell phone bill and I want to be sure that absolutely no data usage goes through on this phone. Is there any way I can disable it? Even if it consists of editing the registry or installing a 3rd party app?

    I need to completely disable Media Net, but obviously leave the phone On.

    Thanks,

    Steve

    As far as going all out and being able to disable everything like that from the device itself would be difficult...if even possible.

    Some phones have a hidden menu which you shouldn't ever attempt to access unless guided by a professional. That menu would be where something like this would be hidden.

    AT&T themselves should be able to block all data. Ask them.

    Yeah but it's not in my name or anything. The bill is paid by a family member whom I'd rather not know that we even have this data capable phone. I understand about hidden menus and what not. I "hacked" (quote unquote cuz it's too easy to consider a hack, but it consists of a hidden menu) it already to make the volume much louder than originally. I;ve got experience unlocking phones and reflashing them to other services, so a hidden menu doesn't scare me. Like I said, I'm not new to technology, just this phone in particular.

    You can go into the menu and edit the internet settings, if they're not right you can't access the internet. Or you can ask the person who pays the bill to call AT&T and block MediaNet. Only thing is, the phone HAS to use data in order to send/receive mms. So if you send or receive pics or videos often at all you might want to think about it. You're not charged for the data it uses to send pics, but the phone has to be able to access it.
