    If i connect to my school wifi to use "Google Search" or "Youtube", do they charge me money?

    If not, how do they charge people money for the internet?

    My mom said don't use the internet or you'll get charged. What does she mean by that?

    Hi,
    There's a difference between wifi and packet data: using wifi won't cost you extra, but using packet data (mobile internet) will! So your mom's right for that part.

    when u r using 3g u will see 3g/H/E in ur statusbar. u can also check it from setting -> wireless and network -> mobile network -> packet data, if packet data is unticked u r not using it.

    I all depends on you school policies... they might be charging a fee to cut the costs down.
