I am having difficulty understanding the exact workings of the 3G network. I have an Iphone 3G, which means it will happily download email, app updates etc from the XT network automatically.

Does this mean that I will be charged $1 a day for this usage if I am not on a plan?

If so, I might switch to the $6 monthly plan, as this is way cheaper in the long run...

you will be charged at the $1 as thats the casual rate but the iphone does alot of things when your not looking so you could end up running up bill if your not on a plan.

Yes its $1 per day for up to 10mb , so as soon as you sign on it costs $1 every day you use data, use it every day for instance its 30 bucks a month plus any excess charges

you are way better to put it on a plan, with the iphone id be tempted to put it on the 120mb plan.
