    palm pixi plus: data charge?

    Background: In the past I had a Palm Treo 700p. I got data charges because
    the email program was constantly checking for new emails, but I never used
    the email program. If I turn off the data, but turn it on occasionally, then
    WHAM! I get charged for data for over the period between "then" and the
    previous time I use data. I deleted the email program, then re-activate
    and there was no data charges.

    Question:
    I brought a Palm Pixi Plus (haven't gotten it, much less activate it).

    I don't use email or any application that needs constant "pinging".

    Does the Palm Pixi Plus default setup uses data?

    If the data is turned on occasionally, will I get "WHAM" with data charges
    or just charged for the data I use.

    If I delete the email program before activating, will that help?

    I do want the capability to turn on the data every now and then, even
    though I plan to use wifi most of the time.

    With the pixi. Go to the make call screen. Then touch the verizon wireless tab in the upper left corner. This will pull down a menu. Touch preferences there will be a list of things you can pick and one is data on or off

    Yes, I know data can be turned off, but I know I will want to toggle that option depending on
    where I am. And I don't want to get enormously data charged for occasional uses like I was
    getting with the Palm Treo 700p.

    Had anyone tried turning off data and turning it back on occasionally and see if you get charged
    a bundle?
