    Yes there is:
    enable in the settings right the first item on top! This will prevent that you continue to use OTA data!

    Hi there-I know that you are new! Welcome to the forum.

    I have deleted your other post as it appeared to be a duplicate of this one. Please do not double post and/or indirectly bump by creating a new post. Both are against forum rules.

    Thanks.

    Okay, previous post was meant as a joke, there is the "Flight Mode" - if you enable it all antennas will be powered off and no data can be sent/ received which will protect you from using up your data plan.
    I guess that you have a 3G model which is actually connected to cellphone network.
    Same as on an iPhone you can disable in the "general" settings, "Network" the Mobile Data - this way no data will be sent/ received using your data plan, however when you are connected to a WiFi network the device will send and receive. In case you want to connect while "on the run" you just enable the mobile data again.

    In case you have no Wifi at home/ around it is recommended to have an unlimited Data plan or one which just reduced the speed once the included data amount is consumed.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    Further to hpulmer's good advice if you go to Settings - General - Usage - Celluar usage you can keep an eye on how much data you've Sent and Received. Just reset the statistics on the day your plan starts a new month. Be aware that certain activities are going to use more data and try to limit them. Eg any type of download be it app, music video. You can turn off Cellular data through Settings - Cellular data.
