    If I turn off Background Data and auto sync. Will that stop data usage?
    I'm going on a trip and don't want to use data while on the road, just when I stop.
    At home I use wifi unless away from home. I don't have unlimited data and want to conserve it and only use when not driving.
    If not, what do I need to do to turn off data.
    Hope this makes sense and someone can tell me.

    The best way to make sure its completely off is to go to Settings -> Wireless and network -> Mobile Networks and then uncheck "Use packet data"

    To turn it back on just check it again. I've used this every time I come close to my data limit.

    Thanks, Izzymyster. I remember that now that you told me. I had looked, but didn't scroll down for enough.
