I had thought that if I had no wifi bolt-on, the phone would simply not access the internet unless I was at a free wifi hotspot or on my home internet, but apparently it does, and it charges my regular call balance.
Since every wi-fi network you have previously connected your iPhone with - paid or free is stored on your iPhone with your iPhone automatically connecting to an available wi-fi network that you have previously connected your with when returning within range of such a wi-fi network, there is no way for an iPhone to differentiate between paid and free wi-fi networks - no longer automatically connecting to an available paid wi-fi network that was previously free to access.
On your iPhone, go to Settings > General > Reset and select Reset Network Settings. This will delete all saved wi-fi network settings from your iPhone for every wi-fi network that you have previously connected your iPhone with.
After doing so, don't connect to any wi-fi network unless you know the wi-fi network is free.
