    Question Restrict data usage to certain apps only?

    Hi there,
    I'm leaving the country on Friday and unfortunately I still have to be able to use my phone.
    As most of you on Verizon will know, their international data plan.... Well it sucks. 100/mb for $25. Outrageous.
    I just recently got a Galaxy Note 3 a few days ago. So far, I LOVE IT.
    I just need a little help real quick with restricting data usage to certain apps. On my iPhone, I could just toggle in settings which apps could use data AT ALL. Is there anything equivalent to that for Android? I never thought I would really need a feature like this, but it would be really nice to just turn on the one or two apps I need to work while I'm gone.
    For the record, my phone is unrooted and has the latest software AFAIK.
    Thank you!!

    You can go to Settings>Data Usage, select individual apps, and select Restrict Background Data.
