Hi @Anonymous, that means that you're 'roaming' onto a 2G network, but you're not charged any extra for it.
What phone are you using? Can you make sure that your Network Selection is set to automatic?

I get this issue too, and so does my wife. Sometimes I can't place a call unless I accept a message that says I may be charged for the call. Is is because the phone is switching to the O2 cell because the 3 coverage is so poor?

Hi @Anonymous, it does sound like your phone is 'roaming' onto 2G service, but you're not charged extra for this. Whereabouts are you and what phone are you using?
This checklist on our Community may help you - Network or Coverage Issues?

Thanks, you shouldn't have any issues in those areas. Can you make sure that the Network Mode and Network Selection are both set to Auto, and in the checklist above make sure that your APN settings are correct? Especially the Server setting, as that often causes that issue.

Sheena, everything is set to auto 2G/3G. I haven't had any problems today since switching Data Roaming option to 'On'.
Server, Port, Username and Password fields are 'not set' (i.e. blank) in the APN options.

Nope, looks like I need to have Data Roaming switched on, and I also got this message again...
As you can see, the 'R' beside the signal strength means I'm roaming. I can only infer that this is because I'm not close enough to a 3 IRL cell tower, and am on O2 IRL instead. Why is this happening? It's ridiculous.
