Hi. Welcome to justanswer.The HSDPA icon which is being shown on your screen is nothing but the 3G internet. If you have subscribed the internet pack on your network then it won't cost but if you are using internet on your phone then the charges may apply accordingly.To disable internet, go to Settings-Wireless and network settings-Mobile Network.Uncheck the Use Packet Data.Reply if you need further assistance.Thanks and Please rate the solution Positively.

Click on Mobile data. Disable it.

Thank you for response - and for your patience.

Expert:  nathan_mills replied 1 year ago.
Solving your problem is my primary aim. I was not able to direct you exactly. The galaxy mini 3 uses older version of android. The mobile data is now called packet data. That's why i was guiding you to disable it instead of saying Mobile Data. Please reply if you have any other query or rate the chat to close it. Thanks and have a good day. Cheers!
