    I have a 150MB/month plan with Verizon, but I'm wondering how much data does iMessage use? I have unlimited text so I'd just use that...but iMessage is so fast and convenient. Lets say I send 200 messages back and forth thru iMessage per day. How many MB in the course of a month?

    Very, very little. Only a few kilobytes per message. Unless its a picture, video, or audio clip. Then its a bit bigger.

    Wonder how much data Siri is going to use. I think it connects to Apple every time you talk to it.

    No, this is incorrect.

    Not much more than a few kilobytes as well. It just sends the phonetics of the words to Apple.

    Maybe not every time, but approximately 90% of the time. Then depending on the command, another third party site.
