If you have a data-capable mobile device and don't have a data plan, simply call your cell carrier and make sure data service is disabled.

If MS Recite attempts to phone home, it simply won't report back with the capability disabled at the carrier end. If your carrier states they can't block it, that's probably incorrect. Simply wait a few minutes and call back to get another person.

Most people with data plans have 'unlimited' plans so it's not going to be an issue.

Since MS Recite does have a desktop installer, those who wish to try it can, with no data charges.
