    I'm a musician by trade so I'd say probably around a hundred since beta 1.

    Oh wait...

    More or less same as before...not sure why iOS 7 would really make it any different.

    Wow... that's pretty scary. Is there any option to set a limit on iOS7?

    What's scary? It's simply the data that you yourself use--it's not like some sort of mysterious data or anything like that.

    If you want to control data usage you more or less have to monitor it and control it yourself--use Wi-Fi when possible, disable mobile data if desired/needed, use some apps/services like Onavo Extend, Onavo Count, and/or DataMan Next, etc.

    Since I've upgraded to iOS 7 it says I've used 458MB.

    My battery doesn't last long enough to use the phone anymore for anything other than txting or emergencies. The music app isn't reliable enough to use anymore. Constantly needs to be closed and reopened or it panics and reboots the phone.

    Before iOS 7 I used roughly 2.2GB a month. I refuse to carry a charging cable with me. Never needed one before. iOS 7 pretty much turned my phone into a Windows device. I have to reboot in order to get iMessages to work and that only works half the time. Screw it, I've posted enough about this garbage. Apple needs to fix it soon to save face. Even CNN is trying to give out advice on saving battery life with iOS 7 and has run multiple stories on it since release.

    My advice, if you're still lucky to have iOS 6 keep it. Wait until iOS 7 is fixed. Control Center is nice, but so not worth the hassle

    It sips data nicely.

    4.6GB

    A lot of it came from re-downloading apps I had to delete in order to update to iOS 7. I almost never use this much data, but that's what unlimited is for lol.

    I did use like 2GBs in my first two days thanks to skype and apps updating that ate a good chunk.

    My speed was throttled the second day w/out telling me, must have been due to a total from 3G data + the new LTE data total for them to do that I guess. I was running 34MB down that first day, since then 0.50MB down. :mad: As of this moment 5.5GB using the 5S.

    I'm up to 6.5gb now. A big chunk did come from updating apps. I noticed that before I used to have to connect to wifi for anything over 50mb but since the new iOS it's downloaded 70mb apps over the cellular usage. I like that since I have the unlimited.

    I haven't had any of the problems you are talking about. Only prob I have had so far is the camera froze once. Other than that it's been great. Do you have the iphone 5 or an earlier version? My friend has the 4 and it is lagging for her she said.

    That is a bummer :( I don't think they should limit the bandwidth...

    Not bad. I wish I knew how much I have used since the first iphone I've had...

    Wait, so you specifically don't connect a lower latency / (usually) higher bandwidth, lower power consuming connection just so that you "get your moneys worth"?...

    1.9GB since iOS 7 GM was released.

    I usually connect to my works wifi and then home wifi.

    I'm on a unlimited plan so not concerned.

    I was grandfathered in originally but since I upgraded to the iPhone 5 I lost it. :(
