GPRS is a data charge.  MMS uses data.  or something else used data on the device

MMS does use data but does not charge as data usage. To OP, to stop GPRS charges or any other data charges on an iphone, go to Settings/Cellular and turn off Cellular Data.

As mentioned, this is a data charge.
The "pay as you go" is a GoPhone plan for basic phones without a data plan. Rather than pay a fixed amount for a set amount of use, it charges only for usage.

A smart phone should not be activated on a basic phone plan, and this is why.
Turning off cellular data on the phone will not completely prevent mobile data charges. The only way to prevent all mobile data is to have customer service turn off data access on the line.

The only answer I can suggest is that since ATT made a data plan mandatory on all postpaid plans, which angered many people who are convinced they don't need data on their smartphone, the gophone plans have been the only way for customers to have a smartphone without data.
