    That's your carrier, not your phone. Contact them.

    Also, make sure you have all the background services turned off. Things like gmail will check to see if you have any new emails in the background and use data.

    Go to menu>settings>wireless & networks>mobile networks and turn off mobile data. That way the only data you use is when connected to wifi. If you keep getting charges, contact your carrier and complain.
