In that case, I suggest using a firewall so that you can restrict any app from connecting to Internet, let alone it can ...

Try using Utter + Google Now.

I programmed Llama to do exactly that. You'll need two events: 3G auto on 3G auto off and one Llama variable: auto3G Event 1 (3G auto on) when airplane mode is disabled [prevents the system to work if airplane mode is enabled] when mobile data is not connected [this ensures there will always be a break of 60 minutes after each (manual) data or ...
