If you get an unlock phone elsewhere and tell them to block your data, you may not get charged because they can't tell because the phone is not from them. I blocked it on my non-smart phone and my mom's account so we don't accidently go online. This is assuming that they haven't change the policy again.

Right now I have a dumb phone but it does send and receive MMS. Does that mean that my plan (through work, I don't see the bills) is really a data plan and I just don't have a phone with the browser and other features??
