    How to turn OFF data download from Cellular Carrier (i.e. only use WIFI but not Edge)? Is there a way to do that?? Because I am on a prepay plan, don't want to incur unnecessary data charges. Can someone answer? Thanks!

    Go Settings, Airplane Mode. That kill it all. Then simply turn Wireless back on. Everything else stays off.

    Is there a way of doing it without jailbreaking it?

    ATT can block data on your account, but they probably wont unless you have your sim in another phone when you call them.
