    If you set your browser options>general properties to the wi-fi connection it will not use your carriers data,otherwise it will.

    If you are connected to WiFi, the browser will automatically use that.

    correct! most of the newer devices (not sure about older ones (curve 83xx , bold 900 etc...)) will always prefer wifi over data, as long as you are connected to a wifi network.. there are certain apps that will still communicate through the data, and are only compatible that way...

    in reading previous posts, with moderate use, you can expect about 20-30mb / month, even if you only ever use wifi...

    if you like, try the app called 'cell manager' it's free, and you can keep track of monthly data, minutes, texts, etc....
