You are correct. Prepaid is littered with folks that had spurious deductions for data usage, just like yours, when they opted out from the data plans, and were charged by the drink every time the GPRS radio was used under the covers. From sync'ing address books, voicemail, calendars, et al.
I use AT&T prepaid on my iPhone 3G because it is the only game in town, as my phone is locked and not jailbroken, by choice. Otherwise I would be on the Magenta Network, prepaid, where I have all my three other phones, and where I use their excellent chat system whenever I need assistance, which has only been a couple of times. (They also have an IVR but I stay clear from it.)
Of course, the Magenta Network will vanish when AT&T gobbles them up and makes AT&T's "star-studded" prepaid the new standard *sigh*
