    How to turn off 3G services. I have an Idea connection on my Samsung Galaxy 3.

    • If you don’t find option to switch off the data connection in the notification bar panel, then press and hold the power/lock button on the right side of the phone to bring up the “Phone Options” window. You can disable data connections here.

        Thanks. That’s a great tip.

        However, I must add that Samsung Galaxy 3, by default, as Android 2.1 and the ‘Data Connections’ option is available only after you upgrade your phone to 2.2 (which I did last week).
