Option 1 (no data at all)

Go to

Settings --> More Settings --> Mobile Networks --> uncheck "mobile data"

The device will no longer connect to the internet, but continue to receive calls & text. MMS are not possible.

Option 2 (data only for mms)


Go to

Settings --> More Settings --> Mobile Networks --> Access Point Names --> Select your data APN --> APN Type

Remove in the field APN type everything but "mms". You have to leave "Mobile Data" enabled (see Option 1)

  • You can't send MMS with mobile data off. Hence have mentioned an the app in my answer. Jul 23, 2014 at 13:06
  • @Pam: Thank you for clarifying this, I edited my answer accordingly to achieve the goal using android tools only.
