You can ask koodo to block all of your data

And u can turn data off on your phone as well

Because I'm not sure it is off, so a simple call to confirm it never hurts and keeping the switch off now will ensure that no data is used accidentally.

I know what you mean...what I'm trying to figure out is the "mystery" around why one can't be sure it's off. :-) when I turn my car off it doesn't continue to run. I would have the same expectation from my phone when I turn data off in the settings. If it doesn't work that way why? And why are people continue to be misled believing it works the way it's advertised.:-)

If you turn the data switch off then it's off however it is super simple to accidentally enable data. Especially on an Android where there may be multiple locations that data can be tapped back on (notification bar drop down, mobile networks settings, some widgets). There's no misleading here only unsureness (if that's a word)

I can't be sure it's off because I don't have access to Denis's phone or self serve account. And since I can't see the setting in my own self serve I recommend he call in to be sure

Ok, then that's bad design by Android. :-) The light in my room is controlled by a single switch. Simple. No confusion, no "unsureness".
