    Default ANdroid apps using 3g?

    The bill just came and it says that I ve been using gprs(3g or 2g) but every single box in wireless and networks section in settings(mobile networks included) is disabled except wifi.It seems from what I ve read some apps use 3g even if you are not connected.How do I stop them from using it?Also gps was satellites options was disabled but the use wireless networks in location and security was enabled.Does anyone know an app that kills tasks without them restarting?

    You can't kill certain apps without them restarting. It is just how android works...I am not sure about apps that use 3G even when it is disabled, maybe you can read the permissions before you install the app.

    mangle the APN entry alone for those that are probably in your country.
    eg:
    Change gprsinternet to gprsinternetx
    Change internet.t-mobile to internet.x-mobile
    ...

    Mangle the APN entry alone instead of deleting all so that you can get them back easily when needed.

    Congrats! You can now enable or disable wifi when you really need stuff.

    I am not sure I just googled it. It doesn't hurt to try because you can always change it back.

    Okay I used ApnDroid that automatically changes your apn settings so that should prevent anything from using 3g right?
