Default Guys... sorry to be a pain...

Please Login to Remove!

I am going to Asia tomorrow and want to use the phone but I need to turn the data off so no e-mails etc would be pulled ( downloaded ) so I dont need to pay a big bill...last time I thought I did... but of course I didnt... ended up a $700 invoice

Please guide me to turn off data service. Thanks

Bruce
