When you're connected to wifi and doing downloading/websurfing/etc, does that use up your data as well or no?

No. Verizon does not throttle unlimited LTE and is not allowed to. They were forbidden from throttling LTE usage by the FCC when Verizon was allowed to purchase more LTE spectrum.

For the record, I don't even live in an LTE area and since getting my 5 I've BLOWN through data doing nothing that I didn't normally do on my 4 or 4S. It's almost like with all these wifi issues that it's using data and wifi simultaneously. That would explain why sometimes it's quick and sometimes it's slower than smoke, and the random spike in data usage when I'm still using the same EDGE/3G/HSPA+ combo and doing the same things as always.

Wifi is a separate internet ride (no data charge.) IIRC, I think the Verizon glitch (supposedly fixed with an update) was that some users were seeing the wifi symbol on the iPhone but actually they were still using LTE because it wasn't shutting off/handing off to wifi properly.

My data usage has been down this month, which is odd. I've only used 2.3GB of my 5GB allowance, and I even went on a trip where I streamed stuff all day long, ran many speedtests on LTE and spent several days away from Wifi. Usually I'm over 3 by this point in the month.

I would stop using Popcasts app or turn the cellular data off. It has a serious bug eating cellular data.

Same issue here. I only have the 200mb data plan, and I've never gone over when I had my iPhone 4. Just a few days into having an iPhone 5, and I'm already halfway through my data allotment. I rarely even use data (exactly why I only have 200mb plan), so I am not sure how I have used much more with the 5 with the same usage. I don't think the whole "you're just using it more" or "it's faster so you're loading more pages", etc is entirely true.

Same thing with me, I can understand I did use little more because its new iPhone so I did spend little more time playing with it....but not that much.

So believe it or not you used the data somehow. It didn't magically rack up all those GB's.

That's what I was saying.
Is it that hard to get?
Wether you knew or understand what used the data or not the data was used and measured on the carriers end.

I heard about the podcasts bug but I never experienced it personally since I dont have that app installed or download podcasts.
I dont think everyone uses that app.

But since I discovered Podcasts eating data I started downloading them on wifi ahead of time and have only used about 270MB in a week now (as opposed to 4GB in about 5 days.)
the pic clearly showed AT&T lmao
