said by ke4pym:What if you just have no interest in using any data, but still need to communicate with SMS? From what I have read, the only sure way to stop this phantom $1.99 charge is to completely block both data and messaging, yet they are billed separately in some plans. If people were able to just exclusively block data, and keep this fee from continuing to appear on their bills, it would not have been a big deal at all.
All you do is call them up. "Block data and sms/mms" and it is done. It even says so on the features section on my bill. Works great. You hit that up arrow, the browser loads then fails to connect.
