goto settings > general > network and turn celluar data off. u can turn it back on when u want to use gprs
100% correct just turn it off with above instructions thats it, you can always turn it back on when you want, its all controllable at the user end nothing to do with the cell company.
ok just for your info:
almost all cell companies got gprs/edge “on” by default even if you want it or not and any data used through gprs/edge got standard rs 15 per megabyte charge on it. if you are not subscribed to any discounted package and you leave your edge on by default any data back and forth would be charged with above rate. so its very important that if you don’t want it at all, make sure you delete gprs/edge settings from cell manually.
for example i got telenor internet, sometimes i use it and some times i don’t, so when my iphone is not using gprs/edge this means its turned off the way paradigm has written above, so when i want to use it then beforehand through sms i subscribe to rs 30/ 10 megabyte package valid for 7 days then i turn my edge on, if by mistake i am not subscribed to discounted package and some iphone app turns it on and all the background push emails, news updates etc gobble up 10 megabytes then by default i’ll be charged 10 megs X rs 15 = rs 150 instead of discounted rs 30 for 10 megs.
THERE ARE LOTS OF CATCH 22s WITH THESE CELL COMPANIES HERE, ONE GOT TO STAY ONE STEP AHEAD TO NOT GET RIPPED OFF.
