    When on a cellular data network such a feature should be included and I hope Apple finally has decided to include it with iOS 8.

    Nada. Unfortunately your data will still be raped by Safari:mad:

    I don't actually have iOS 8, but from what I've seen, it doesn't.

    I didn't even consider that as a problem to load pictures, interesting. I suppose that would save data.

    A lot of images are completely pointless as well. As an example, when reading a movie review, I don't need a random still image or four from the movie to accompany it. If I really want that, IMDB is a few clicks away with the images and the trailer.

    Use onavo extend. Its an app that compresses every data sent to your phone so you can browse more from your data plan. Or use other browsers like opera mini.

    I have to agree with this.

    I doubt this feature would cater to enough smartphone users that it would actually be officially implemented.

    Actually my old (and still) unlimited plan is much better than the crappy data plans of today. (and yes I know it wasn't in 2001 :p)

    So if it's unlimited, why do you want to disable images?
