First of all, I've read several similar questions here, but they are either not related, or require root access (Droidwall and stuff).
I received my Google Nexus 4 a week ago, and enjoying it so far. One thing is bothering me though.
I have access to Wi-Fi pretty much whenever I need it, so I'd like to disable any mobile data usage, at least until I figure out a nice data plan.
So the first thing that I did was unchecking
Mobile Networks > Data Enabled and
Data Usage > Mobile Data (I believe, these are the same thing). Now, the usage graph is empty. However, my carrier's report shows several records (6 in 2 days) of low mobile internet usage rounded to 100kb each. Cost-wise, it is equal to about 1 minute of talking.
I could probably live with that, but I have a trip to another city in a few days. If it happens while I'm in roaming (although
Data Roaming is also unchecked), it will become much more expensive.
And so, the question is: how do I block mobile data for sure and let all the apps only use the Wi-Fi connection?

Possibly relevant options:
- Data enabled - off
- Data roaming - off
- Restrict background data - off - I use skype and imo.im, so it's nice to have them update in background
- Auto-sync data - on
- Keep Wi-Fi on during sleep - always
