do i get charged data usage for playing games already downloaded to my iphone?


I downloaded some games on my iphone so my kids could play them but now am wondering if their play time on downloaded games counts as data usage, or are they free to play downloaded games since data was charged on the download.

No. But just to be safe I'd turn off your data. Go in settings/cellular and toggle the cellular data to the left to turn it off.

You might. Some games has advertising, others require an online connection in order to log in and play. There are also in-app purcahses for some. It really depends on the game.

If you don't want extra data charges for the games, Turn off your data and play through wifi only. You will know which games require an online connection when you play games without data/wifi.
However playing the game through wifi adds to your wifi usage....your ISP account....I assume.  If you have a limit you must watch that you don't go over.  Wifi isn't free unless you have unlimited.  Am I right?

You are correct, however usually you have a lot more gb's of data available (usually 300+) on your home internet connection compared to 1-2gb's on your cellular phone.
