    I have a friend who purchased this phone recently & the data service comes back on after she has turned the Mobile button off. She is on a limited data plan & last month had a huge bill due to this issue.

    Any ideas?

    i'd also think about a data counter widget to watch your bandwith instead of waiting for a large bill to show up...

    You can also turn on the built in usage limit:

    Settings -> More -> Usage

    Mobile usage can be automatically shut off at a user defined limit.

    The phone and Verizon both have the ability to notify you when you are getting close your limit.
