Can I block data service on my smartphone?
Data service can only be blocked on 3G smartphones (including "bring your own" devices) by request. The additional $15 monthly smartphone access is not applicable to 3G smartphones when data service is blocked. Picture and video messaging (MMS) requires data service, and will no longer function when data service is blocked. Wi-Fi data service will continue to function normally whenever the 3G smartphone is connected to any Wi-Fi network.
Data service cannot be blocked on any 4G/LTE smartphones.
To block data service on a 3G smartphone, or to determine whether data service can be blocked on a smartphone, call us toll-free at 1-877-474-3662, or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
