The difference between GPRS and 3G

Hi,
The current GPRS architecture lets users be always online. They will be charged for how many KBytes of data to be downloaded/transferred each time.
I want to know that is this same for 3G? I mean charging by data downloading/transferring volume. Or, it will be charged like WAP - by minutes.
Thanks for help
Andrew

Hi,
G3 is the next new standard looming over the horizon. Both hold out promises of faster, more robusts transmissions.
Best Regards,

So, 3G is also charged by the data transmittion volume?
