    Just wondering if you are data hogs just because it is "unlimited" (5gb soft cap). I am under 2GB, but 3g service SUCKS in San Francisco.

    I've asked this before, and I have to ask again. Where does AT&T state that they have a "soft" limit of 5GB data? Or has anyone actually been warned by AT&T by using more than 5 GB data in a month?

    As for my data usage, I use way less than 1 GB per month. I get Wi-Fi in many of the places I use my iPhone.

    I am just using that 5gb "soft cap" as a reference point. I have not seen or heard from AT&T about a 5gb cap. Many/all carriers are doing 5gb cap on all tethering plans.

    The last time I restored was on 7/3/2009. Since then, I've received 669 MB of data.

    Under 4 GB for me, and this is since day 1 the first iPhone was released. Assuming the usage tracking is accurate. I did have one replacement 8 months into my 1st device and not sure when I migrated over if that usage counter was moved?

    163 MB since July 28th. I don't really use much data, so the 500MB plan I have is perfect. That, and I tend to use a lot of WiFi. Oh, and I haven't had any signal for a couple days because I'm stuck out in the boonies, so that's great.

    Total to date or monthly? Looking at AT&T's website, I use between 300-500 MB per month, but I use WiFi at home.

    I have a customer using an AT&T data account and it stopped working. We called to find out and he was over 5G by about 1G and had $700 in overages and they shut him down to keep the charges from going up.

    WHAT!!!!????? That is at a rate of 70 GB per year!!! :eek: That is absurd. I am using my iphone constantly and I've only used 1.2 GB in over 6 months. Granted most of the time I'm using apps for internet usage but still...

    Are you tethering?

    Maybe a little bit. But I recently traveled to Northern California and the place that I stayed had no wifi. Thus I accumulated more data usage than usual.

    Was that on a tethering/data card plan?


    For laptops, there is a monthly 5GB limit. For phones, there is not UNLESS you have a tethering add on.

    I only keep track of data monthly..just to see how much I use in a month.

    It runs around 4 gigs every month :)

    about 100-200 mb a week.
    ATT 3G is slow (even with full bar) in my area.
