    I just converted my 2GB plan to unlimited as per the 2G iPhone trick. I'm worried I'm going to hit about 5GB this month at the rate I'm going. Has AT&T ever intervened or canceled anyone for using too much data? :apple:

    I just jailbroke my phone and using the MyWi app and I'm just burning through data with tethering. :D

    About 8-12Gb per billing cycle. The most ever was 16.7Gb.

    I really don't use that much data. Maybe for looking at Facebook every now and then, so normally <100-150MB

    I'm using about 250MB per month with the high being just over 400MB in September. I'm not sure what it is I did that month (maybe XM or something) but I'm glad I'm on the unlimited version still...

    A friend of mine is doing about 30 MB a week with the 200 MB plan.

    I usually go over 1 GB and kept my unlimited plan.

    I'm very happy to have unlimited plans on my smartphones, as I use them extensively. A smartphone is ideal for my needs, since I travel frequently for both work & pleasure. I don't have any idea how much I use... :)

    I'm between 250-500 for the past 3 months, I haven't used nearly as much data as I thought I would.

    I average 6 gig on my iPAD 3G with unlimited plan. I do the opposite as you guys, I tether my iPad to my iPhone on TMobile :p It's crazy but I always have my iPad with me (photographer and it's my portfolio).

    No tethering at all. It's mostly from downloading big files and streaming Netflix.

    Isn't that ridiculously slow with Edge-only speeds? I know it was practically unbearable when I was traveling lately and was stuck in an Edge-only area. Or does TMobile's "4G" now allow the iPhone to use its 3G? I read something about the frequencies of their HSPDA+ crap being compatible.

    I average about 1 GB a month. I've occasionally gone over 2 GB though.

    I hit 9 GB when I got my iPhone 4 on launch date. Now I average anywhere from 3.5 GB to 4.5 GB each month.

    Damn you Americans with your unlimited data plans...I'm jealous!:(

    I'm trying to stay below the radar of 1gb cap, or its a £5 charge for every 4mb over!:mad:... currently I'm at 750mb and have another 10 days before my bill gets generated.

    and thats with regular browsing and downloading from appstore.:(

    I don't understand what you guys mean by "getting your unlimited back"? I thought AT&T took that away and now you have to choose a plan...:confused:
