    I just got a Iphone 3GS without a data plan. and was wondering if turning on the "Location services" for the camera and the compass used "Data" <- the kind I have to pay for =( I'm scared to turn it on and use it and rack up my bills

    The phone has its own compass chip, so it doesn't need information from anywhere else. But if you don't have a data plan, then you shouldn't be charged even if it did use data. Because if it did use data, you wouldn't get any information without a plan.

    If you have 4.0 you can turn off cell data. Then turn on Location Services for using the GPS and Compass.

    When you say I can turn of cell data and 3G dose that mean I cannot be charged for ANYTHING without turning them back on again?

    Yes, the only way you can browse the web is via WiFi.
