I know that many people use their Windows Phone devices on a data-package basis. But I was playing with a secondary H2O Wireless account where it charges as PPU (pay-per-use) on $0.30 per MB. Using a Samsung Focus(Mango) I was able to notice what seemed to be "random" packets of data being used with no apparent pattern. It consumed data 5 to 6 times on average per minute, with some instances where the charge was anywhere from $0.02 all the way to above $3.50 (at $.30/MB). And that was while the phone was just idling, no browser nor any other software that I invoked. I had to close the data section to avoid depleting the funds on that account ($25/monthly plan). I do realize that the OS is cloud-based, data-centric by nature, but I also had the same phone on a GoPhone unlimited account ($50.00) where the data wasnt available since this device is a smartphone; yet, it never asked for any connection to keep its information "up-to-date"(tiles and stuff). I think this feature will make a great impact and I will love to test it as soon as it becomes available.
