    If you are wondering how much data you would use then try out this calculator. Make sure you select tablet as your device.

    I used to have a data plan on my iPad and hovered around 1gb and less. I mostly just browsed and rarely watched any videos.

    I'm grandfathered in the unlimited plan. I usually use <2GB each month, epecially when not traveling, so could conceivably save the $5/mo by switching to the 2GB plan. However, one of the reasons I don't use more data is bc 3G frankly sucks for video streaming. Once an LTE ipad model ships I am pretty sure I'll do more streaming and eat more data. I just have to hope that I can bring the unlimited plan with me as I did from the iPad 1 to 2.

    With the soon to be released 4G

    ... It will inevitably be more, higher bandwidth available means Netflix and other streaming will detect higher bandwidth and send higher quality video, etc. thru. Hope we still have unlimited data at $30/mo with the iPad 3.

    Thanks! That's really helpful. I was actually just curious how many use a data plan and how many use wifi only. But this calculator is helpful for future reference. TY.
