I added windows live as an account on my phone and it is now using a 3g network and costing me money. Is there any way for me to delete this account?

I have an LG Optimus Quantum. Thanks :)

You cannot delete the account if it is your primary account, but you can change the account synchronisation to be manual:

  1. Settings
  2. email+accounts
  3. Tap on your account
  4. Change download new content to manually

You will now need to manually synchronise your email, contacts and calendar.

Alternatively you can turn off your data connection:

  1. Settings
  2. mobile network
  3. Set Data connection to Off.
