Default Data Plan Charges for Update?

I had a rooted inc so the gingerbread updates would not work. The OTA updates starting hitting me about mid Nov. Each time I would accept the request and it would start and then fail. Sell toward the end of Dec the updates were getting larger, one about 80MB. It was then that I tried to manually update to gingerbread. Well to make a long story short, everything failed until I did a stock update via the PC (ruu?). Now I am on gingerbread and its wonderful.

However, just got my Verizon bill. I have the older $15 data plan with a limited download value. To my surprise, all the updates were listed on my data plan and my bill was sky high. I did not know that system updates were against your data plan.
