Default Garmin Asus A50 GPS Doubts

Hello I have a Garmin Asus A50 and i have T Mobile connection. I have some doubts .
1. I dont have a data plan , so if i use internet while connected to wifi router, is that free ? and if i download something while connected to router ( eg: youtube video or a song like i would normally do over a laptop) , is that download free or will T mobile charge me something ?

2. If not connected to the router and i do not have a data plan , is there any way to access the internet? It has happened with me sometimes that while not connected to the router , i was able to access the internet and the 3G icon on the top of my home screen displayed some activity. are both of these things connected ? Does in this way i am using internet through t mobile for which they will charge me ? Because my t mobile account always updates itself with all my latest phone calls and messages but it still shows that i have not had any download activity . any insights ?

3. Is the GPS free or will the T Mobile charge me anything for that ? and if while connected to wifi and using the GPS i use some of the features of the phone like movie times, gas prices.....are these free or will T mobile charge me for this also ?

1: yes
2: not sure
3: Garmin Inbuilt GPS and no charge as it does not use the internet.

Down load an app called 3d watchdog it will monitor your internet usage on the 3g network.
also down load an app called APNdroid which you can use to stop Internet access to the 3G network
