Questions on data transfer with data plans

I have a asp.net 4.0 web application that uses linqtosql to insert/update/delete data from a sql server 2005 database.
The application is elastic and therefore fits on any device... phone, ipad or desktop.
On phones and ipads users will normally have a data plan.
What I want to know is when a user is connected to my application,  but not inserting/updating/deleting data, is it affecting data usage?
Also is there data usage if a user is just looking at pages or does data usage only occur when data is being inserted/updated/deleted?

Yes it affects data usage, if you are receiving information or sending information it is data usage as far as i know.  Just looking at web pages will also require downloading the web page to the device so that is also consider data.  I am not sure how the inserting/updating/deleting data logic looks like but if you are posting information back to the server than thats data too.  
There are plenty of tools out there for devices to check the data usage.  If you want an accurate answer i would test out the application using a network traffic tool and review the internet data usage (Bytes Received, Sent)..
