Hi everyone,

I got an Android phone today (Samsung Transform Ultra) and I would like to use Google Voice for texting. I only have 100 MBs of data, however, so I would like to make sure that no other applications are using any data. How do I disable all data except for the data going to my Google Voice app?

Thanks!

droidmyme is correct, as far as I know.

There are some Data Management options in Settings, if you haven't checked that out, do so.

Additionally, whatever apps you have installed that do any sort of Syncing, or, automatically update, disable that or set it to the maximum time limit.

Lastly, keep an eye on your data usage. Throw a widget on your desktop that lets you know how much data you have used this cycle. I keep the one from Verizon on mine. And, if you are just about to hit that 100 MB mark, turn off data and wait patiently for your cycle to reset.

Make sure all syncing is off and that any apps that use data are set for manual updating, or wifi only. That should take care of most of it.

Thanks guys. I guess I was hoping there was some app that would let me look at the background data preferences for all my other apps. I'm using 3G watchdog to see if anything is using data and disabling it when it is.

Also, how can I remove the built-in Sprint apps on my phone?

Don't forget to hit the Thanks button if someone helped you. :p

As far as I know, not much bloatware can be removed without rooting. I am not rooted and was able to remove maybe 5% of the bloatware from my X2.
