Re: Possible to pick and choose data servces that are switched off

Andy, sorry, there's not.


It's either all data or none.


However, you should now that while travelling, if you will turn OFF your mobile netowork connection to your home carrier and LEAVE ON the Data Services, then all data will flow through the WiFi connection and none through roaming data, costing you nothing. If that is your concern.
