Want to use Backflip on GoPhone plan, can't turn off data

2011-04-05, 14:08 PM

I currently have a GoPhone plan, and wanted a droid phone. I basically wanted something simple, that I could install some cool apps and games on, and use wifi for internet access. I only want to transfer data via wifi since I am almost always in range of a wifi network. Since my plan is a GoPhone, I do not want to transfer anything via 3G. I got my phone setup and working well, but periodicallly a message comes up on the phone, saying last transaction cost .26 or some other amount. This happens even while the phone is off. I have nothing set up with the MotoBlur account, and also went into settings and turned off background data, and selected to only sync while connected to wifi. Yet the phone continues with data transactions through the 3G network for some reason. I can't have this, and it is killing my GoPhone balance. I have had to go back to my beat up razr until I can figure this out. BTW the phone is running droid 2.1 and I bought it used. I really want to use this phone, can anyone help me shut the data transfer off?

There is an app in the market called data switch that should do what you want.

I think I did change the sync to manual, have to check that. I did search the market and found a program called APN Droid. I think it is doing the trick. I have not gotten one of those small data transfers since I installed it and disabled 3G. Phone still connects via USB and my wifi network.
