water, 21 May 2014Attually,am facing the same problem,am using huawei ascend y220,i bougth it this mounth but no... moreTry the following: Go into Settings - Apps, then scroll across to the end, to "All".
I have the Y300 and most/all Android phones should have similar setup.
Look for & click on each app causing you problems, like "Messaging", "Phone". First try "Force stop" (ignore warning about misbehaving!, for now at least while you test it out). If you still find it's using airtime/data, then "Disable" it for the times not in use.
Can't guarantee it'll work 100%, but if it does, at worst it's an inconvenience, and at best, will save you your money spent on airtime / data.
Note that if you rely on incoming calls/messages on this as your PRIMARY phone, then I'd suggest not force stopping / disabling these things.
But if you want to continue using the phone for other apps not causing problems, then I suggest you use a cheap feature phone for calls/messages with your main SIM in, and this Y220 for the rest of services, like I do on the Y300.
Also, in Apps, under "Running", you can Stop "Messaging" for eg., etc. - probably less of a vulnerability than Force closing the app & it might work.
