    Default Setting to only allow updates when on wifi?

    I am coming from a Galaxy Nexus. There was an easy to find setting to only allow apps to update if connected to wifi. I have not been able to find a similer setting on the Note 2.
    Last night I was trying to conserve battery because of a power outage. I shut of my wifi and bluetooth, went to bed with no power and woke up with a lot of wireless data burned for no reason.

    I have been searching through settings and have not found anything. Any ideas?

    Try settings> wifi> menu button> advanced> auto connect>

    Besides that just don't allow auto updates in the market

    It's right there in the settings menu while you're in the market.

    When you're in the Play app, just hit the menu button & settings will be in in the list.
