Click on Restrict Background Data. Ensure that the blue tick mark is there (accept Ok for any messages that the phone throws back). You're Done!
Thank you for the quick reply, but my tablet has JellyBean (JB) and restrict background data doesn't seem to restrict anything. I can still access Google Play and other apps still access in the background, too.
I'm wondering if this is a firmware-related issue and maybe someone can tell me if there is a custom ROM or Kernel for the XZ that allows background data to be completely turned off?
