No service when 3G is off

I have the 4S and I recently used the data for the first time since I got the plan (I usually keep both Cellular Data and 3G turned off) and after I turned it back off, I no longer had service. The service only works if I have 3G on. Does anyone know why it worked before, and if I keep only 3G and not Cellular Data on, will it still use up my data plan?

3G is the network level. It's different from using data but you can turn data off. You need to leave 3G on or else your iPhone won't work because Koodo doesn't use a 2G network.

So only turning 3G on will not use my data? (just clarifying)

Yeah, that's fine.
