    I just got on an ATT contract with my 3GS. I was wondering on average how much internet use you rack up in a months time?

    In about two weeks I have about 570MB. Some of it tethering.

    I typically average between 800MB and 1GB of data per month.

    I have had my phone since December and only have about 3GB. But that will go up since I have found this site about 2 weeks ago:D

    It was about 200mb per month on my 2g, but since I got the 3gs I have used 400 mb in 2 weeks.

    I do quite a bit of freelance photography so I like to show the client my website which has a lot of photos so it eats up a lot of data. And off the record I like tethering for those times I'm on the road now, after I updated to 3.0 :)

    Since I can't stream music on my work PC, I've become a hardcore Pandora and Shoutcast app user over 3g. My monthly use has gonne from about 400 MB to about 1.5 GB

    I usually try and max out my data cap on my plan. Went from 500MB to 1.1GB limit with 3gs upgrade. To get to 1.1GB will probably require tethering. :)
    Australian carriers, all have data caps...

    Atleast Att has a decent 5gb soft cap on all of their plans, I hope that if you add feathering it gives you an additional 5gb. Making it 10 total.

    But also since I have gotten my uverse with a new router I use my wifi quite a bit more than I used to. My wifi didn't even cover my small house all the way before and I would use edge in my dining room.

    I pay $30/month so I try use as much as i can all the time. I stream thru my car speakers all day, tether, send emails all day.


    but im a little over a 1 gig a month no matter how much I do

    what else can I do to get my $30 worth out of data??

    I feel bad for those who use under 100MB a month

    I was surprised at how much I managed to use this month. I use it casually, only when I'm bored.

    Bill said it was 330 MB this month, from a 500 MB limit.

    I use between $19,000-23,000USD worth of data per month, according to my carrier. Of course, that's adjusted down to about $50 (flat-rate data) ... In terms of MB, I think it's only about 300MB/month. Not that much, really.

    Since I got the phone on the 19th:

    395mb down
    19.8mb up

    So I guess 800 - 1 gig a month?

    I'm no a business user and I don't tether (yet). :D
