new to Android.
Hi. I'm generally an Apple user for tablets, and iPods etc. But I can't afford and iPhone, so I have a Huawei phone based on the Android system. I have a question. Is there a way to cut off all incoming data over night, like email, updates, etc, without using airplane mode and canceling my incoming phone calls? I don't want to de-activate my phone overnight, but I don't need incoming emails and other data, which I'm trying to keep my data usage down. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you very much

Re: new to Android.
It depends on your phone model and OS version, but somewhere in your settings there should be a "Blocking Mode" (the equivalent of iPhone's Do Not Disturb). Another option is that you could turn of the Sync option to prevent apps from fetching data or getting push notifications. Also, you could disable Mobile Data altogether, leaving only room for incoming/outgoing calls.
There are also apps that allow you to do this (several Battery Saving apps and Task Automation apps) either via switches or the more advanced, with timers or even location-based.

Re: new to Android.
Thanks for all the info. I'm really new to Android and I know that I have version 4.0.3. I downloaded an app called Data on-off, but even when I activate it I'm still showing full wi-fi signal, and 3Gsignal. At home over night I don't have wi-fi. I believe I've figured out how to stop my email from checking through out the night, assuming turning off notifications is correct, but it'd be nice to have one button to turn off all incoming data without affecting the incoming phone calls. I guess I'm too old to figure out a new system.
