Have you exceeded 2gb of data usage in a month?

  1. Yes, and I tethered with a jailbroken iPhone

    Hey guys, wanted to know if you exceeded 2gb in a month - with or without jailbreaking and tethering. Seems like most people don't, except for some who exceed the amount by a huge amount.

    Maybe the 2g limit is to stop tethering illegally? I dunno, but interested to see the results - if it's just from those who tether, I'll be fine with the 2g.

    Try reading this first.

    Also, read existing threads and contribute to them before starting your own. :)

    I did. But it does not ask everyone about the tethering, which is the main question I have. Many of the graphs are posted without people specifying how they were using their data.

    Seems like no one who hasn't tethered has gotten over 2gb in 1 month

    I'm sorry but I have to let some steam out.

    don't even begin to act like it's OK to cap our unlimited data plans. becausse it's not

    We the people are MAD. FURIOUS. at the injustice that is being served.

    For more proof, lookup @attnews and read all the angry tweets from us, the people

    I use WiFi most of the time, so I consume less than 200MB a month.

    Nope, I nor my wife come close to 2GB in a month. She's the heavy user, with youtube, facebook and such, so if she isn't, then I'm guessing many people aren't.

    Based on what I have been reading 2GB is a pretty darn high threshold to hit and if you're doing that then you're doing some heavy network traffic, so then its a fair assessment to expect those folks to pay more for the excessive bandwidth they're consuming.

    I tether from a non jailbroken iPhone (we have tethering in Canada) and have NEVER gone over 2G in a month, not even close.

    On my iPhone I only use about 500MB a month.

    However on my iPad, I use over 2GB a day. That's mainly from Netflix watching of course—especially when roaming overseas.

    Sometimes I'd install ooTunes or Pandora for a few days and use about 600-700MB but nothing more than that.

    I don't even come close. That's why I'll switch to the $15 data plan as soon as it becomes available.

    I do tether now to my ipad, although seldom and when I do it's only for safari or mail.

    Before iPad came out i didn't tether and still used close to or 5GB+ per month. Mainly streaming music on commute.
