My wife has a canada talk&text plan with pay-per-use data. She does not use data but there is always a data charge on her bill. The charge is like 0.01mb each day and the total each month is $5. How can I disable data on this bill/phone?

Call Koodo and request a data block

Keep in mind this means she will not be able to send or receive picture/video messages via MMS.

If you have android check this out:

If you have an iphone:
Settings>Cellular>Cellular Data Network

Change the APN settings under Cellular Data, Visual Voicemail, and Personal Hotspot
I suggest something simple. For example change "" to ""
This will ensure no data leakage happens since the APN address is incorrect. However you can still send/receive picture messages via MMS.

NOTE: If you ever reset your settings your modified APN address will revert. I susually make sure my sim card is pulled out when I need to reset settings to prevent accidental data usage. Then make sure everything is turned off/changed and then put my sim card back in
