    As long as you have an active account on the SIM card you are using, you should not get charged anything different. Keep in mind tho that te iPhone keeps a constant data connection open. So if the plan you have tied to that SIM card is a voice/txt only your wil get charged data per MB. So make sure you have an unlimited data plan or use SBSettings to turn off all the data radios(Edge/3G).

    So do i need to buy a plan to use the internet and browse the app store, etc?
    I'll be using a Vodafone sim card most likely.
    I want to browse whilst im out and about, not just WiFi.

    Without a data plan the iPhone will NEVER be charged for data. And that is because you can not use data with out a plan. Thus internet will not work, nor mail, etc., unless you are on WIFI. And there is no charge for using WIFI.

    However, you will be charged per text message which is normal for phones without an SMS/TXT messaging plan.

    My iPhone has been unlocked and contract free for over a year and I have never been charged any data fee's.
