    Right click on any live tile (weather, store etc) then click on 'Turn live tile off' at the bottom.

    No problem.

    Did you open the Charms bar while on the Start screen instead of from the desktop? "Start settings" is only available from the Start screen.

    It's under Tiles, but the Data used for tile updates option is only available if you have your wireless connection set as metered.

    Sure, if you don't want to have live tiles turned on for a Store app, then turning them off it would be fine. It's basically setting it's data usage to zero.
