How to Disable Internet on LG Xenon?

If you don’t pay for Internet on your LG Xenon, please turn your 3G & EDGE (Internet) complete off. I decide to paste his tutorial to my blog here and share to someone who are looking for it. All tutorial credit to bhiga. Thanks for the great job. LG-Xenon info

LG Xenon Tip – Disable 3G:
1. Engineering Menu  – ‘dial’ 3845#*500# or 3845#*501# (menu should pop up when you hit the last # – you do not need to press Call/Send)
2. Select Modem Setting
3. Select Network Mode
4. Select Network Mode (again)
5. Select 2G Only

You can also force the frequency band if you want, but that’s extreme and may lead to no coverage in some areas.
1. Engineering Menu  – ‘dial’ 3845#*500# or 3845#*501# (menu should pop up when you hit the last # – you do not need to press Call/Send)

LG Xenon Tip – Disable EDGE (Internet)

If you want to avoid accidental Internet usage, set up a "No Internet" browser account.

(Note: Below info applies to AT&T phones.  Rogers, Fido and other carriers will have slightly different names and possibly menu structure)

Top Menu>Settings>More>Connection>Access Points>New Profile
Enter a Title (ex. "No Internet") and APN (ex. "null")
Save it.
Go back.
Internet Profiles>New Profile
Enter a Profile Name (ex. "No Internet") and set it to use the "No Internet" Access Point.
Go back.
Go back again (you should be in Top Menu>Settings>More)
Applications>Browser>Accounts>New Account
Enter an Account Name (ex. "No Internet"), Home Page (ex. "http://null"), and set it to use the "No Internet" Internet Profile.
Activate the account.

Now…
Access to the built-in browser (MEdia Net) should fail with "Connection failed!"
Access to MEdia Mall should fail with "Connection Error Unable to connect to server. Retry?"
Access to CV should fail with "Connection failed!"
This won’t necessarily block all Internet access, but it should at least limit the access to the initial name resolution attempt, if that even gets counted at all.
To get back to having Internet access, go to the Browser settings and activate the MEdia Net account. LG Phone Problem and Solution

  1. Thank you so much for this! Just one correction, you have to make it into an “Internet Profile” instead of an “Access Point” or it won’t accept it.
