WIFI charges - What am I doing wrong?

I have att and thought I had the settings on my bold configured so I wouldn't get charged for data usage, but I am anyways.  What do I have wrong?  I have a bold.


Under manage connections, I have mobile network and wi-fi both with check marks in the boxes to the left and the mobile network - ATT has a green check beside it.  The wifi had a dash mark beside it to the right.  I have data services turned on.  My browser configuration is set to hotspot browser.  And on the home screen it says ATT then has my home network listed next to it.  The wifi icon looks grey.  I have only used the browser when I have been at home connected to my wifi network.  


Any suggestions on what I am doing wrong, or what I can do to fix this problem?  Thanks in advance!

If you're not signed up for a data plan with ATT and don't want to use any data, then I'd go to Options >Advanced Options >TCP and remove all the settings in there.  That will prevent you from accessing ATT internet.
