Hi, I am completely new to the smartphone world, but I live abroad and would like to know how to turn off all the data roaming stuff. Verizon makes it seem like it should be really simple, and I did what they told me in the store (turned off background data updating) but still got a message about 6 hours after turning my phone on that I had already used $25 in data roaming.

Help??

Go to Settings > Wireless & networks > Mobile networks and there is a checkbox option for Data roaming. Make sure that is unchecked.
I haven't tested it because I haven't left my area but it seems to me that should work for what you want.
