     Call customer care and ask them to add the NWIX block feature for you, this will disallow internet connection at all times and no need to worry about accidental charges.

Im thinking of calling customer care to have them add the NWIX block feature to disable internet features on my phone so that I dont accidently incur data charges on my bill.  My question is, exactly what features will get blocked by doing this.  Somebody told me that I would no longer be able to send/receive pictures in my text messaging.  Is this right?

 

Alternatively, can a password be setup so that I wouldnt be charged for accidently launching an internet application without "authorizing it"?

The only features that will be blocked are the Internet(of course) and picture messaging as that is req to send MMS
