iTunes Radio uses Data, correct?

I have the 2 GB plan, iTunes Radio is no different than streaming from YouTube, is that right?

I don't want to use my data in up in like 10 minutes !!

Correct, it will use your data, same as using Pandora, YouTube, etc..

Unless you're on wifi, of course.

I have the 2GB plan as well. I've been using iOS 7 since day 1 of the first beta, and I've just made sure to only use it while on wifi.

Yes it does. You'll need to monitor it, and see how much you use. If you're on Wi-Fi it makes no difference. But it can be chewed up quickly if you're outside of Wi-Fi, and just on 4G/LTE.

Ah...another reason why I wish we were allowed to keep unlimited data!!

It goes rather quickly when on LTE.

Yes, be careful with iTunes Radio. There's no way to change the quality of the songs, and it uses a high bit rate. You can burn your data plan really fast.
