I can confirm that the few times our phone has used data by accident, some funds have deducted. Never without data use though. It does seem expensive, so it may be a good idea to be careful until the cost per MB or GB can be established for sure.

Edit:
To eliminate that, I have placed a hard cap on that sim of 0.

Thanks, chosen & tech-stitch, for your observations about data overages.
That would jive with why I haven't seen any charge-- my FreeUP SIMs are in dual-SIM phones, with another SIM designated for data use.

I also use Google Voice in forwarding mode to my carrier number-- that might mean that with careful attention to blocking data access from other apps, I could manage to use the current no-data FreeUP plan in a single SIM phone, with the needed minimal data being charged against my balance.

My line started to let me use the balance for paygo data. So that makes it a lot more useful for me for the odd times I might need data on that line. The credit was free printing coupons anyway.

Would anyone know what the pay as you go rate is for data?

Well it would have except I managed to burn through my $10 of data in 5 minutes by accident last night. Didn't know wifi went down temporarily.
