    Some helpful hints:

    * Install a widget to enable/disable mobile data.
    * Use wifi whenever possible
    * Install 3G watchdog to keep track of your usage and set alerts to let you know when youre getting close to the limits.

    You can probably upgrade your data limit for much less than overcharges will be.

    Uninstall the antivirus. Worthless.

    First off I would switch your prepaid plan. If your broke I'd do the $30 4G Monthly plan. That will give you 100 minutes with unlimited talk and 5GB of 4G web. If you exceed that amount (which most people RARELY do), your web and data speeds are throttled down to 2G (EDGE) speeds until your next month starts. That way your not paying more if you exceed your 4G web speed limit.

    How much RAM your using has nothing to do with you being charged for data use. Anytime you use the web from your phone or download from the market your using your data and web. That's what your being charged for. The other alternative is using your home's WIFI or a WIFI hotspot when your close to one. When you do so your not using up your data limit. When your surf the web and download over the T-Mobile network you get charged for it, but using WIFI is free :)

    I second these, also check out the walmart family mobile plan which is powered by t-mobile. Right now they are doing unlimited data for ~3mos.
