Object Storage is not enabled for a Linode account by default. All that is required to enable Object Storage is to create a bucket or an Object Storage access key. To cancel Object Storage, see the Cancel Object Storage how-to.

Billing for Object Storage starts when it is enabled on the account, regardless of how it is enabled. For example, if you enable the service by creating an access key, but you have not yet created a bucket, the $5 monthly flat rate (prorated) for Object Storage is charged for the account. Cancelling Object Storage stops billing for it.
