I know this question has been asked many times before, but it has never been adequately answered. The solutions seem to require some knowledge of coding. I just want an option in settings. How hard would that be?
I started using Opera 16 because of the Off-Road Mode. It does a great job of limiting data usage when I have my phone tethered.......until Opera starts updating itself. (I know it is Opera using up the data because I am using Networx to identify data usage by application.) I have a data cap with my phone so I want to do all my updates when I am home or using public wi-fi.
I'm tethered now and when Opera started updating I turned data off on my phone then went to program files and deleted the Opera autoupdate application file. (It didn't show up as an application that could be deleted properly.) I turned data back on and came to this site. So far Opera hasn't crashed or tried to update. That solves my immediate problem, but now when I want to update I'll have to add the file back to the Opera program directory. Even if that works and Opera is able to update it's still a lot trouble to go to.
Is there another way?
