Google Play Store ate 1 week data in 5 days, want to get rid of it

Hi, I run a cheap phone a relative gave me, my first touch-screen, I only have whatsapp and messenger on there, but google play store has made itself at home and last week ate all my data in 5 days (I am on low income so use the £1 a week tarrif, I get 20MB per week). Can I get rid of Google Play Store? Any help much appreciated!  🙂

It's probably pre-installed & can't be uninstalled.

 

Try these Settings:

  • Settings / Connection / Data Usage / Menu button / Restrict Background.

  • Settings / More / About Device / Software Update / WiFi Only.

Many thanks, I will try that. New job means I am not doing much when I get home, hence slow reply. Thank you again.
