    Is there a way to turn off data connections over the phone network?

    I have an old palm pre-2 which I am going to give to my mother-in-law with a pay as you go SIM card. All she needs it for is to call taxis or her friends occasionally. She has no wifi and is not computer literate. I do NOT want it to connect to any data network and use up her SIM credit.

    So, how can I turn off all data connections but still have it working as a phone? I can't see anything in the user manual about this.

    Thanks for any advice

    EDIT - found it buried in the phone menu. You can set to only connect as 2G or turn data off or both.

    Open Phone app, in the pull down menu go to Settings. Data Usage is right in the Network section.
