Using the Spica for the first time. How do I know if I am off the internet after using the phone to browse?

You should be able to switch off Mobile Data from Settings -> Wireless & Network or from the long-press Power menu. –  Matthew Read Feb 24 '13 at 16:24
Also, most Samsung devices have a "power menu" inside the notification area (which you can drag down). This should include a symbol with two arrows (up and down) which you simply can tap to enable/disable mobile data. –  Izzy Feb 24 '13 at 17:59

How do I know if I am off the internet after using the phone to browse?

You can look at the signal bar, the signal bar would be grayscale when it's not connected to the internet, green if it's connected, and have arrows when actively transmitting data.

How do I switch off the internet after use on the Samsung Spica?

The phone will only connect when it needs to, such as when you're browsing or when an app needs to check for update. Unless you're charged by connection time (I don't know any carrier that does that, most critters charge by amount of transmitted data), there's no need to disable them manually when you're not using it. If you need to disable Mobile Data though, you can do that in the Settings > Wireless & Network.
