    Many users of new "windows 10 Technical Preview for Phones" are unable to turn off mobile data.....
    so here is the simple solution:
    1] go to setting>Extras>access point
    2] create a new access point ( insert anything in fields :p )
    3] Set it as active.
    Done!!! :P
    whenever you want to turn on data go to access point n choose working (default) access point :)

    Um, first of all, that was a known problem and disclosed.

    Also, setting a different access point certainly breaks the connection, but i don't think it saves much power.
    Awkward, but i suppose it does save data.

    It was one of the features Microsoft said didn't work in this build.

    Good effort if you found a workaround that works for you.

    Hard reset your phone. If that doesn't work then use Lumia software recovery tool and revert back to 8.1

    The Windows 10 Technical Preview is NOT A FINISHED PRODUCT.
    IT IS NOT A COMPLETE UPDATE.
    It is an early access program for those who do not mind the risk of messing up their phones.
    It has been stated so, there are disclaimers you had to have clicked through to EXPLICITLY opt-in. It is not for public use.

    New Windows 10 Technical Preview build now available for phones

    There's no one to blame but yourself. the risks and numerous problems have been outlined in various places.
    Never was this billed as an update for normal people, whereas the Developer Preview is much more polished.

    If you had an Android, this would be as if you installed an experimental nightly ROM, ignoring the warnings, and blaming the developer for releasing an unfinished product when things go wrong.

    The solution is to erase your phone and revert to the last release.
    How to roll back from Windows 10 Preview to Windows Phone 8.1 | Windows Central
    And don't jump into Insider builds without looking in the future.

    Happy phone-ing!

    Try removing your memory card before repeating the same process again.

    It's not an update.
    It's a technical preview.

    Have you tried with a different cable or the cable supplied with your phone or any Lumia phone cable? (as far as I know most lumia phones are shipped with factory cables, however I am not sure about the latest handsets - not sure about other OEMs).

    I had the exact same problem and for me no other cable works apart from the Nokia supplied cable...

    this doesn't work actually. When my WiFi was out of range, the phone automatically started using mobile data even though there was no indication of it on the notifications..i mean there was no E or H symbol.

    Head to settings -> cellular+sim -> For limited wifi connectivity set to 'dont use cellular data'

    The other workaround for this bug is to hard reset your phone.

    Assume you cannot since it was EXPLICITLY stated that the feature would be broken.

    For those who are getting black screen in access point setting.

    Try the mentioned steps in landscape mode. ( I was having the same issue, landscape mode saved me)

    C'mon now people. I may be suffering with light-headedness at the moment, but is nobody gonna call me out on this one?

    I just checked the page I thought it was mentioned on at Is it right for me? - Microsoft Windows and it's not mentioned. So I was mis-remembering and wrote an untruth. For which I apologis/ze.

    But it does beg the question, has anyone else actually read that page? Or is it further evidence that world+dog just clicks "Next" on the install warnings etc?

    So, is the cellular data on from the moment you install the build ? Or once you switch it on, it cannot be disabled ?
