The bbm icon is always showed at the top left of my screen. It says it's because bbm is always connected. My question is: am I being charged for data usage even though I don't use the app when not on wifi? It says it's always connected so I don't want to always be charged when I'm not on wifi and not even using the app!

Short answer: Yes, it does. Very small amounts when you're not using bbm but still uses data. Almost like every other app, the app is always pushing data to and from the servers to see if there are new updates, notifications, etc. bbm just actually has a visual representation of being "connected".
