Wifi usage activates data plan - any way to fix this?

    I recently found out from a Page Plus Cellular rep that I will be charged .99 per megabyte for data, even when my phone is using wifi!


    ^Most of those charges occured while I was just using my phone; no internet usage (I've since turned off the wifi)

    Is there any app that will circumvent this crazy billing practice?

    Most likely you still have data enabled in the background in the settings. If you aren't connected to WiFi and an app needs internet, it will connect via mobile network. Go to menu>settings>wireless and network>mobile networks>turn off data
