Hi,

See my post at http://community.vzw.com/t5/BlackBerry-Devices/Data-Usage/td-p/325472 for an answer.  Also, it answers how to check your data usage question in your other post.

I have provided some information below that may be helpful using WiFi and not 3G.

 

Step 1 – Ensure WiFi is on. Instruction article below:

Step 2 - To use just WiFi, turn off Mobile Network. (Instructions below)

-Press Menu

-Select Manage Connections

-Mobile Network (unchecked is off)

**If you select Turn All Connections Off, this will disable both the 3G and the WiFi.

 

Step 3 - To setup a WiFi connection I have provided the article below:

**If you do not need to setup a connection, just connect to a local Wifi network.
