    turn off data?

    How can I turn off data on my rooted 2.1 moto droid? it seems to be using large amounts of data when my phone is idle... in excess of 500mb overnight at times...

    Nothing running so idk what it could be other than maybe searching for signal...

    Only by putting the phone in Airplane mode. Why would you care how much data you download? It will cost the same if you download 5 kilobytes, or 5 terabytes...

    You have no 5gb limit, read your contract. A Droid will not activate on the VZW network without an unlimited data plan.

    the 5gb limit was removed when Verizon lowered the price of their unlimited calling and texting plans are few months back.

    Unlimited being unlimited data to the phone. Tethering is still against the terms of service, and VZW has the right to charge you for every Mb you tether.

    I wont get into this. If you want to view the dead horse and the sticks we beat it with, then do a search on tethering.

    Yea this has been covered plenty of times. Our data is unlimited on our PHONES, not for tethering. That being said, thats weird that you phone is using that much data without you doing anything. Did you receive the 2.1 update or did you use a rom to update to 2.1. Your phone might be continuously downloading the update. Theres a thread floating around about how this occurs and could be decreasing your battery as well.
