    They can tell but they cant legally change your contract.

    Your fine, im doing the same thing, and i havent been over charged yet.

    The text might say that you using to much data, so make sure you turn off Edge/3G if you dont have a Data plan with the family plan, because you CAN get overcharged if you use too much data.

    Did you use any 3g/edge at all?

    I believe it is outrageously expensive (25 cents a mb or more) if you do

    Make sure you turn 3G OFF!

    You can get charged up the ass for that. Start using WiFi.
