Am I charged data for app installs through the Android web market?

I have been installing Android apps through my PC using the Android web market. I click install in my web browser and they are then installed to my smartphone. However, I was wondering if my carrier (Sprint) charges me data for this?

    Only if you download over 3G. If you're connected to Wi-Fi, your phone downloads over Wi-Fi, so you don't pay for that transfer. You can open the market on your phone, tap Menu, tap Settings and enable "Update over Wi-Fi Only" to prevent your phone from ever using valuable data for app installs.
