    how can you find out the data usage before and after d/l? for example how much data was used to stream a netflix movie or such.

    Settings -> General -> Usage (Note Cellular network data sent/received)
    Download content
    Settings -> General -> Usage (Note Cellular network data sent/received)
    The difference is your usage.

    Are you using Wifi? The usage screen only shows cellular data used.

    The data usage only counts data used on the network, not over Wi-Fi. Also I guess it might take a little time for it to update?
