    Is it possible to turn off all the data except from email in my Sony Xperia Mini

    I am using Sony Xperia Mini phone. I want to turn off all the roaming data except from email. Is it possible to do while using my phone? If yes then please give me suggestions for this purpose. Solution appreciated.

    Hello Guest,
    Firstly, I would like to tell that the roaming charges will be applicable for data service since its related to network and has nothing to do with Android OS. Secondly, you may enable the "Push Mail" feature in your phone but that does require an internet connection and so it makes no difference as to whether you are using only email or other data as well. The charges will be same. So, I suggest that you should not use data service while in roaming, so as to minimise your expenditure. Thank You buddy, Hope it helps... :-)

    Hi,
    It is not possible to use the mobile internet connection only for the mail purpose. There is one work around that can be done so that you can use the mobile internet connection for the e-mail application. Open "Settings" from the application drawer and then select the option as "Application" there you will find an option as "Running Services" there you have to end all the other processors that are running except the email process once it is done. Turn ON the internet connection from Settings menu and then synchronize the e-mail once the work is done again turn OFF the Mobile internet then you will be able to save your mobile internet.
    Hope this Helps.

    when data connectivily is switched off., all the data communications are barred. this means you cannot use the facility of instant email.
    but you can go to individual app to turn off data connectivity except for email. this should do the trick

    Stop the automatic synchronization of all the accounts configured in the Mobile device, You can do that by accessing Contacts --> Accounts. Just keep the only mail Account that you want to access, Disable all other accounts. This will save lots of data in the Mobile.

    If you have any Applications installed in the Mobiles that have constant access to the Internet, Close the Application Completely. Access settings --> Applications --> Manage Applications --> All running services and close it.

    The Roaming data facility is provided by the Network operators..
    you can not turn off data usage for just a particular application..
    you can either turn the whole data off.. or you can use the data for all apps..
    there is a feature in Connections that lets you turn off roaming data..

    so i suggest when you need to access e-mail.. turn on Roaming data..
    otherwise.. keep it turned off..
