    The data on/off toggle is buried in the "Preferences" of the Phone App, most of the way to the bottom under the group "Network".

    If you intend on toggling data on/off fairly frequently, there are a number of patches that put the data toggle on your device menu (drop down menu on the top right, right under the battery sign).

    I thought this phone has to have a data plan in order to be activated. :O

    yes, but you can turn it off when it isn't needed.

    Yea, I understand that..but why would someone turn it off ~ for battery consumption purposes?

    Yes, it can help save on battery, but the OP said they don't have a data plan.

    In the U.S. they have to have a data plan, however from the shaky English in their post, I don't think they are in the U.S.

    Speaking as someone from a Country where data is expensive and limited (Canada) -- the ability to turn off the data radio and only use it as-needed is critical.

    In my case: yes, Show Data in the Device menu is a patch I've used for quite a while. For those of you on Verizon -- you might need to use this switch more in the future (although I'm sad to see Unlimited plans drying up).

    Having said that: I learned the hard way: *Partial Erases require activation* and *activation requires carrier-data (WiFi isn't enough)!
