Do Cellphone Carriers Charge Each Time You Play Already-Downloaded Files?

Sorry for the poorly-worded question, but I need to know whether AT&T, et al charge my data plan each time I access a file I've downloaded days or months ago? For example, I downloaded a bunch of 1940 Census pages (PDFs) the first day they were released. The original downloads put me over my 2GB limit, and I got socked with overages. Every time I open/view those files that currently reside in my phone, will AT&T charge it against my data plan? I haven't gotten a straight answer from the AT&T forums or other sources. TIA! And God how I miss my unlimited data plan.
