to stop the data being used up you need to disable the mobile data button ... swipe down from the top of your screen it should be one of the buttons that comes down switch on and off as required remembering that when you download apps remember to setup your updates to download only on wifi connections and know that the data button stops all features such as facebook whatsapp BBM etc from working it will only get calls and sms's
Before this i was using HTC Desire. When started this, i was dissapointed, that it did not react so quick. This is not really fast warking phone. But all the other ways its great
Nominally waterproof phone that can't take being run under a tap. Otherwise mediocre, but good battery life. Not sure the screen will ever look right again. It might be waterproof enough to take in the rain, but I wouldn't trust it beyond that. I liked the Xcover 2 until the water incident, but I specifically picked it because it was waterproof, and compromised on features in order to get that waterproof capability. To find that it doesn't work as promised means I just have a kind of lame compromise phone now, with a screen that may never look good again.
It's a real pity, because I have Samsung's B2100, and it is completely, OMG waterproof. Accidentally ran it through the clothes washer: no problem. I'm disappointed that Samsung's quality seems to be so variable.
Is there a way remove/stop certain features such as unwanted DATA!! Urgent

Worst phone ever!
Slow as hell, memory is total crap. No apps installed and allways full. Micro USB cover fell of.
Dont buy this crap, and if possible, stay away from any crappy android phone. I won't even recommend android phone to my worst enemy.
Oh, and did I mention that the battery is crap? And that the phone is full of bloatware that you can't delete?
Root my ass, android makes me sick and vomit. Can't think of any phone, that i need to spend several hours at computer rooting and cracking and partitioning just to make it usable for daily tasks!
Don't forget, you only get to take 50 photos and upload 10 songs, when the memory is so full, the phone can not open the default gallery app.
But lets not forget that this is the bautiful and open android. This means that i can spend countless hours installing crappy galery apps to find the one that works.
Oh, and how cool is that I managed to delete my alarm clock? No need for that in android,because its open and you can root it and install some cyangoen mod or whatever crap you want, to make your phone more slower and less user friendlier.
Worst phone ever combined with worst mobile os.

Ram, 28 Feb 2014Can I save the taken photos on the SD card?Yes,you can choose in the camera settings to save your pictures on the sd
AnonD-222026, 07 Jan 2014The internal memory is 4GB but 3GB is reserved for the OS.I myself having that problem , have you found a way to excess the other memory , also did you manage to save applications on the external memory card ?
My. XCover 2. Has only. 1 Gb of internal memory. ! Is that suppose to be only that much of memory. , cause it say by specifications 4 Gb of internal memory. ! How can I fix this ! Other than that love the phone !
You might wanna try and go under setting, there is a shortcut there named "Developer Options" in there activate your Developer options and tick the box that says something about usb Debugging, and then scroll down and tick the box named for permissions to the sd card and your problem should be solved, if not, take it back to the retailer, then there must be a fault on the device it self
Have owned mine for almost 6months now. it has fell 3 times, and been dropped once by my kid but no scratch. The only drawback is the limited memory otherwise thubs up!!!!
Shawn, 16 Jan 2014disappointed had the phone for 3 weeks screen cracked its not a robust phone If your screen cracked, you'll most likely get it replaced on warranty
