Hello forum, first timer here. I searched the forums but could not find the answer, so I'm asking now. My Samsung Omnia was stolen so I'm looking for a smartphone replacement, which will probably be the Nexus One. Since I never used an Android phone, I need to know if it's always connected to 3G or I can choose, Windows-Mobile-style, whether I'll connect to Edge, 3G, WiFi, or no data connection whatsoever. This is important to me because I live in a country where unlimited 3G is outrageously expensive and per-MB pricing is the way to go. I'm also NOT a heavy user of mobile Internet, and the fact that everything Android is in the "cloud" could run up my bill. tl;dr version The 3 things I really need to know are: 1. Is Android always-connected, permanently sucking bandwidth, or can I turn off data connectivity at will? 2. If I can turn data connectivity off, will I still be able to use local apps, say Google Contacts or Calendar? 3. Can I sync it to my Windows 7 box via USB?
