Am I being charged for 3G or using up my data if 3G is on, but I'm not surfing the web?

    3G doesn't have to be used when you're not surfing the web. You could be using things in the background that uses Internet such as location services and streaming media. The transfer of data on cellular is very low when you're not actively using apps. It depends, how much data is being used on 3G when not surfing the web?
