    Soooo. cant find the answer on alltel and im not the main person under my account. So hopin someone will be able to help me.

    This data calling confuses me. What is a data call? I have a ton of them on my bill, $76 worth! Have no clue how to stop them. Some of them are billed and others are not, why is that?

    Example:
    10/29/09 05:47 PM DATA-1X/DO,CL 000-000-0000 1.0 AT $ 0.40 $ 0.40
    10/29/09 04:22 PM DATA-1X/DO,CL 000-000-0000 1.0 AT $ 0.00 $ 0.00

    any help would be great! Thanks!

    Well it looks like you are still only being billed for data per minute used. So it comes out of your anytime minutes or during your n/w time. Just like a phone call.

    And you are getting charged the overage charge per minute and that is where the problem is. You aren't really being charged for the data used. Just for the length of time you are using it. So between those two times it was used you ran out of your anytime minutes.

    Correct. As for what was being done, it's anybody's guess. The system doesn't track what the data was, just that it was being used and for how long

    If you use Celltop or a similar program or try getting on the web while you are in your daytime minutes, you will see charges like that.
