i'm afraid that your calculations are based on an incorrect premise. 1,400 pages per day is not exlusively for EDGE/GPRS; 60% of that figure is made up of cloud wi-fi. the limit for EDGE/GPRS is 200MB per month.

here is an explanation from o2:

You can browse the web on an iPhone in three different ways; on the O2
cellular network, over The Cloud WiFi hotspots and on any open
home/work/public wifi connection.

The figure Matthew referred to on the 18th September was the maximum
utilisation of the first two of these put together - clearly any use
through home/work wifi would be additional.

Just explaining the exact numbers, the iPhone tariff includes a fair
usage limit of 200MB on the O2 network and 60 hours on The Cloud per
month. In our calculations on typical page size and usage this combined
would equate to 1400 pages per day.

Where did you find this? Can you provide links showing that the limit is 200MB?
