When I use WiFi, does that count as far as data usage on my cell phone plan? The plan Im on advertises unlimited everything but the data as conditions and I've gotten two notices from the company saying I'm excessively using data so now I turn on WiFi at work and home. Does the Wifi usage count as far as data usage goes?

WiFi uses no mobile data from your carrier. What do you do while using the Mobile Network? You can also download a third party app to monitor data usage. This will let you know how much data you use on and off the Network.

As others have stated, Wi-fi uses no data. To be sure though, you can just go into settings>wireless and networks and then look for the one for 3g data and turn it off. Then you know for sure that only your wi-fi is being used.

Data from your connected network, but not mobile carrier; so any messages warning you about "extra charges" won't apply. Same goes for when you're out using a public hotspot.
