Samasung galaxy s8+ avoid data usage

I just got a Samsung galaxay S8+ and I was wondering if there is a setting or way to use it as a phone only without using any data besides on a WiFi network. So that I can receive and make calls and text without being connected to WiFi.

You’ll always want to have data enabled in the Android settings. Turning it off there will prevent texting (and sometimes calling) from working correctly.

If you’ve purchased data, and you want to prevent it from being used, you’ll want to use the Data Freeze setting in the Republic App. Here are the directions for that: How to Apply Data Freeze in the My Choice (4.0) plan – Republic Help
