Permanant R above signal bars / no mobile data

I received a new purple sim to replace my old SIM card, as my old one was too old and a capital letter R has appeared permanently above my signal bars. I am a pay as you go customer and I was told over the phone that I should needed to insert the new sim once I’d received it and it would work the same as my old one. I can still make calls and receive calls and text but I’m a bit concerned that I will be charged as I know some networks do charge for roaming data even though I’m still in the UK. Can anyone please help me out? Thanks

Some old devices (seen it in Nokia and early versions of Android will display an R)
