    Hey guys,
    I got an iPhone 4 with AT&T that I recently upgraded to IOS 5. I have a 200mb internet plan on my phone and have never previously went over the limit. After the upgrade i find that i am easily going over the limit. My browsing really has not changed. When I am home I connect thru my my WiFi. Can someone please make a recommendation whether I should turn off any services like iCloud or anything like that? Or possibly anything else?

    Thanks

    These American networks...

    From what I understand, Verizon's CDMA technology is their big pitfall; Sprint's is their reliance on 4G WiMax instead of 3G or LTE; AT&T's just plain awful. I do feel sorry for you. :(

    I also feel sorry for them

    I know its not helpful but if the uk can offer unlimited data then why can't they.

    Although I have unlimited data I rarely exceed 600mb and the most ever was 1.3gb.

    I know-it's a joke tbh. I average about 500 MB but have gone over 1 GB and even 2GB sometimes. It just seems alien to me to even check how many minutes/texts/data I use-you can't best unlimited packages.

    Really it seems the punishment invoked on America for having 4G available-data caps are the only way to stop people going massively overboard on internet usage. Unfortunately the carriers don't change their policy for non 4G phones like the iPhone. :(

    Interesting. My husband's iphone4 is on a 200MB plan, which has always been enough. This is the first time we're seeing that it might not be. I wonder if this app would be worthwhile. Has anyone tried it?

    Yes all the networks here are terrible except for verizon. Even though they run CDMA I have always had them as my phone company, no quesitons asked. Sprint and AT&T are the worst..

    I honestly dont think CDMA is all that bad..

    So you've always had Verizon, but you know Sprint and AT&T are the worst. interesting.

    I've had verizon, then tmobile, then AT&T. Guess it depends on what your needs are, where you live, who your employer offers a discount for...

    Sure, it isn't. :rolleyes: Remind me why the iPhone 4S is a world phone with both GSM and CDMA capabilities...

    Outside the States CDMA is pretty non existent-so Verizon would be fine in your home state, but a bit further afield, not so good. All UK networks are GSM for instance: a pattern that's echoed across much of Europe and the rest of the world.

    Haha I'm finding I'm easily getting to my 2GB limit with my 4S. Gahh I wish AT&T would bring back their unlimited data!

    You want to argue over Europe v the States or something? Grow up. That's not what this thread's about.

    You should say that to the person that dished it out first.
