    You can turn your data connection on and off through the Cellular settings, allowing you to be guaranteed 100% WiFi only data. If you are connected to a WiFi network, you won't be using your cellular data anyway.. so it wouldn't matter if your Cellular Data is on or off.

    You cannot tell it if you want to connect to 2G (Edge) or 3G specifically.

    Oh, I agree - it only matters because, as I said, i'm on 200MB a month, and if I get close to my limit, I may want to turn it off so I don't accidentally use it when I'm not in wifi, and go over. I had a profile on my iphone that did that for awhile, and it was handy to have the "reminder" that I was at my limit, and have it simply not work when I tried to use the web on the go.

    Okay we need a better way to meter data. Somehow, my att update says i've used 90 megabytes in the last 6 hours. I haven't downloaded anything, I've only checked facebook a little, used twitter a little, and played harvest, flowers, and illomilo a little. No web browsing, i have skydrive turned off - how could I possibly have used 90 megs?

    Yeah, I get that Acheivements and stuff connect to xbox, but for what I did, no way i shoulda used more then 5-6 megs. What. the. hell.

    Is there any way to meter in the OS how much data you are using? like in settings? I can't find it.

    You are correct. MMS will not work with the data connection turned off.

    Also confirming this. It's not just an internet connection either, you can't receive picture messages from wifi only, cellular data needs to be turned on.

    no offense bro, but yer mistaken. you did something other than what you listed.

    Edit: new pet peave - people referring to any data connection as "3g".
