I just activated a new iphone for my daughter with talk and text plan, no data. We expected that she could access facebook when in wifi area without data plan, as she does that now with her i-pod. Sadly we see that she is being charged on a per use basis. Is there a way to block the data access, and can she still access internet in wifi areas as she has always done for free with her i-pod?

You can turn data off on the phone and still have access to wi-fi. Go Settings>General>Cellular>Cellular Data. Turn that off.
