A typical example would be any of the various push services you can subscribe to at mobile.blackberry.com such as weather, news alerts, and so forth.
Open your blackberry internet browser, open bookmarks, scroll to the bottom and see what if anything is included under pushed content.
I currently don't subscribe to anything but I still have some 230KB in pushed content as shown in browser > options > cache operations. I haven't stopped to think what that is. If you aren't subscribed to anything and wondering why you also see pushed content KB in browser cache, I don't know.
I'm not a good one to answer on the matter of mobile charges, but if you have mobile network enabled, it is possible that the blackberry is making connections on the mobile network, and thus you are charged.
EDIT: I just realized you wrote that you don't have a blackberry data plan, and thus you wouldn't have been able to subscribe to push content such as describe in my first paragraph. You also would not be using the blackberry browser; the wifi/hotspot browser or a third-party browser, maybe, but not the native internet browser.
