    So I'm heading up North with my new X and want to reduce the VZW data roaming charges in Canada as much as possible, but without losing or reducing my Exchange email service.

    I will:
    cut back on unnecessary browsing.
    stop downloading videos!
    turn off background data.
    turn off HTML for emails.
    use Wi-Fi when possible.
    turn off GPS.

    Is this the right approach? Any suggestions on other uses or apps to avoid?

    Does the FM radio use data?

    GPS shouldn't use data unless you are also dl'ing maps with it. Otherwise, sounds like you have it. And no, FM radio shouldn't use data, it's just pulling in the signal from the air. I haven't used the FM radio yet though, so I don't know if it also goes online to bring more data about what you're listening to and station info. You can also turn off data roaming, but then you'll lose e-mail. Although you could reenable the roaming, check e-mail, then disable it again.
