You can switch off your data connection on most smartphones. Here are some instructions for switching data off on Android and Apple devices. For other phones you can find instructions in our device guides
Before switching off your data, there are a couple of other options to give you confidence in using your phone:
- If you’re worried about roaming rates, you can take your UK allowance to Roam-free and Roam-further destinations
- In My Vodafone and the My Vodafone app you can keep an eye on your usage, add extra data to your allowance or add data bars to stop data being used on your device in the UK or abroad
- We’ll text you when you’re reaching your allowance limit and again when you’ve exceeded it
However, if you’d still prefer to switch your data connection off, it’s simple to do so.
Many Android phones have Mobile Data in the Settings menu, accessible when you swipe down.
Or on iPhone choose Settings, then Mobile Data before toggling the switch to off
