1. is this phone good? any problems
Yes, and yes. Whether it's any good for you entirely depends on your requirements, as does whether you'll have any problems. Probably the most consistent complaint is the poor Bluetooth implementation (in regard to different profiles).
2. is that right that i will need to pay both, monthly cellphone service plan and data service plan, in order to keep internet access on 24/7?
Most probably, however this depends on your provider. For instance, I use Vodafone in Australia and I'm on a 'capped' plan which includes $500-worth of services, for $79-per-month. This includes calls, sms, mms, and gprs internet. I suggest you check out your country's providers' websites for available plans.
3. is the internet access on whenever the phone is on or i have to turn it on when i need it and turn it off when i don't.?
Your device will connect to the internet whenever an application needs to. Generally this only occurs when you want it to (such as if you hit the send/receive email button in Pocket Outlook), however you can certainly leave it connected all day (as long as you're within your network coverage area). If you do, you can set Outlook to check email on a schedule.
