£1 charges taken off to daily usage

Hello, i've just bought an iphone 3g, had to have new sim card, on the simplicity tariff, £5 for unlimited texts,
when i put the card into phone a message from O2 came on saying for £1 i can use net for one day, something like that and took a pound off my balance,
something like this happened when i put the old sim card in and O2 told me to turn the push button off which i have,
Does anyone know what i mean and how do i stop this thing taking £1 off me everytime, Just want to text and use home wifi for the net
New to smart phones, last one was a nokia 6230i, simple but couldnt sent emails on that either,lol,
Thanks if anyone can help

Re: £1 charges taken off to daily usage

The phone you have bought is designed to be constantly connected to the internet. As you do not have a data bolt on O2 will charge you up to a maximum of £1 each day for internet usage over the network.
You need to go into settings >general >network and turn Cellular Data to OFF
It will still work with your WiFi

Ensure you aren't allowing your phone to connect to the internet without you knowing.
