    Default nexus 4 newbie

    I want to turn off background data as I am near my limit.
    I see a disable option for data. I also saw on a help video that there is an on/off toggle.
    Do these methods have different functions?

    Thanks for any comments. Very much appreciated.

    Welcome to Android Central! To turn off the mobile data connection, go to Settings>Wireless & Networks>More>Mobile Networks, and uncheck Mobile Data. This can also be done using any number of mobile data toggles that you can install from the Play Store (my favorite is Power Toggles). The stock Power Control toggle bar that actually comes with Android devices lacks the mobile data toggle--it only has a wi-fi toggle. Many phones seem to make it a little difficult for you to toggle mobile data on or off. Perhaps it's a subtle way to encourage more data use.

    I tried replying to the last post with quote but got spam warning so I'll just say, Yes to the last points, and by the way the LG G3 makes it commendably easy to switch mobile data and wifi on and off.
