I have two talk and text phones and my first bill shows 0.13MB of data and a $5.00 charge and the second phone shows data usage 9.6MB and no charges. Not complaining but not sure why the second phone wasn't charged for data use. Anyone know?

Were you sending picture messages on the 2nd phone? That might explain why it doesn't charge you for it.

Two attemps were made at sending picture messages both unsuccessful. That may be it. Thanks

That is a very good question! Actually if non of your phones has a data plan, pay per use data will start to be charged after you used more than 25Kb, so technically you are supposed to be charged 5$ as well on that line...

If Internet is something you don't need on your phone you can get it blocked or just make sure your data is off on your phone, feel free to expose your case to Customer Service and for sure you will get the 5$ credited.

The usage you have must have been accidental, so some apps running on your phone caused this...
