    yea what jrsjr said. 2 GB is really a lot, at least for me. i only use like just over 200MB each month, between 250-350 average.

    I think 2gigs is easily managed. As a guy that usually hits 2-3gigs per month (cause I'm an internet radio streaming superfreak) I think I could keep it under 2 if I monitor my usage carefully. And I'm gonna have to as my colorwared iPhone 4 arrives in about 3 weeks

    You have used just what it says, 63.22 MB of your allotted 2048 MB (2GB)....or about 30% of your plan...

    Your math is WAYYYY off. He has used about 3% of his available capacity. 630 Mb would be approx. 30%.

    I stream Pandora Radio for about an hour every day while driving, and at the gym. I watch a show every once in a while on Netflix, and use the web while waiting for anything/anyone. I seldom break 2 Gb a month, and if I do, it's only by a 100 or 200 Mb.

    If your going to stream your going to need more then 2gb. I do not stream or watch youtube and I keep it under 2gb easily.

    i dont stream but now its up to this 124.95 of 2048 used, so it will go to 2048 and say 2048
    also it says this


    DataPro 2 GB You have the 2 GB data plan. When you reach the limit for your billing period, an additional Data Pro 1 GB is automatically added at a cost of $10. 124.95 of 2048 used

    is that true

    Yes it's true. If for any reason you go over, the add an additional 1GB for an $10. charge. When the first announced they new limited plans, they estimated that something like 2-3 % of smartphone data plan users ever go over 2GB.

    If you google something like kb-mb-gb you will get several online conversion calculators.

    Here is what I have experienced: On the two iphones that have been on my bill for over a year, they never even get to 200MB. For a month or two, when first put into use, they did use a bit more. It really depends on how often you are bored and/or need to kill some time. If you are a student with time between classes, or a commuter using public transit, then you may use a lot of data. But if you work, have a life or even have WiFi available sometimes, you will never use that much data.

    Now here is my quandary: The two older iphones are not using any data, but have grandfathered $30. unlimited plans. The two new ones (now 4 total) have limited plans. I sure would like to drop the two old ones to $15. plans. (they never go over) but giving up unlimited data seems foolish.

    2GB for iOS4 w/ Multitasking is not enough.

    For the last 2 years, I've been using 328MB on average and 420MB max on my iPhone3G.

    iOS4 w/ Multitasking uses 3x the amount of normal usage, last month I've burned 790MB and decided to change my data plan to 6GB on Rogers.

    Currently, I'm @ 2.3GB and still have 7 days left of my current billing cycle.

    You're right, I must have been sleeping when I figured out 30%, 3% is the correct number

    2GB of data is more than enough to get the average consumer through the month.

    2gb isn't enough if you plan on streaming anything. i use pandora for about 2-3 hours a day, and managed to hit 2gb in 2 weeks.

    unlimited data FTW
