There are a couple apps in Android App Market that allow you to turn Wireless data off. APN OffOn is one I've used. I think a Data Plan is required by most providers if you have an Android Phone so you'll probably get charged for a plan even if you don't use it. You can also try calling them up and block data on the Network Side. I've done this with my personal provider.

I've also been successful asking my carrier (PagePlus) to block all data (and MMS, which uses data). It's worked perfectly - EXCEPT that they reset it at times (change of plan or phone, etc. details in a follow-up post).
Nothing else I tried worked, but YMMV. (3g Watchdog worked when I was using a different device on AT&T.)
