    I rooted my phone, then I deleted tiwlan_drv.ko in the system/lib/modules directory. I did this because I do not want wifi access on my phone at all. I'm looking for a similar way to get rid of 3g access as well. Does anyone know if there is a file or something I can delete to accomplish this?

    I would just ditch the phone and get a "flip phone"

    Scimino, I'd rather save the $20. I paid good money to find out that I don't want a smart phone, but now I'm stuck with it. There ought to be a way to do this.

    Not sure if your phone has the menu but:

    Open dialer>Dial *#*#4636#*#*>Phone Information>Settings soft key> Disable data

    Works on mine.

    If you can put the phone in airplane mode, it will do the same

    zomnomnombie, I'm really looking for a way to permanently disable the 3g connection. i.e., I don't want to be able to re-enable it when I am tempted to.

    Ok, I bricked my phone. For the record, deleting all of the files in the system/lib/modules directory will kill your phone dead.

    Looks like I'll be getting a flip phone afterall.
