This might sound really stupid, but I'm asking anyway:
When you go over the character limit, your message gets turned into multimedia.
Would I get charged more for that...?

No, all sms and mms are included! You only need to turn on data on your phone to use multimedia message but there'll be no charge! :)

You won't be charged for MMS but you will be charged for any data that is used from apps running in the background (syncing) if your just turning on data to be able to send those messages & then turning it off again.

Some phones allow you to go into your messaging app & press the menu button then press settings & on certain phones there will be an option you can check or uncheck to make large messages split into 2 or 3 smaller messages when sending so it won't send it as a MMS.
