    Nah, I was just kidding. Besides, I probably use my iPhone more than most people here - just not for stuff that shows up on a bill. Facebook, games, Safari, etc. In fact, I use my iPhone so much I had to start carrying a 10,000mAh external battery pack because I was tired of running out of power on my way home from work every day.

    Usually every month:

    c. 3,000 minutes
    c. 800 texts
    c. 3GB of data

    (That would be my work phone, personal phone gets considerably less usage in terms of phone, and about 1GB of data)

    Oh yeah that's obviousaly the idea because it is so cool to use data :rolleyes:

    4.5GB is not a lot even on an iPhone I am pretty sure there are probably people who use far more than that without even thinking about it.

    This is normal usage for someone who uses their phone for:

    a) Work
    b) Browsing /downloading Apps in free time
    c) HEAVY social networking
    d) all of the above

    You can use a lot of data using music streaming apps, web radio apps, maps, youtube...

    Hm, so I guess you don't have wi-fi too often?

    I typically log under 200 MB of cellular data per bill since I try to get on wi-fi as much as possible.

    Good one, read back through the thread and you will notice tinny the cat has never mentioned anything about using 4GB on social...

    The person who mentioned social was me, just as an example tinny could just use it all for work etc.

    But it's ok I can see how you would have got what we said mixed up, we do have very similar usernames...

    Ok, maybe I'm on the other end of the usage group and this was a quiet month. Normally it's around 50 or so minutes and about 20 text messages.

    8 minutes
    2 text messages
    .68mb of data
    3265 rollover minutes available

    I know I access or use data services quite a bit but I guess I'm jumping in via wifi for most of it.

    I get through, roughly, in a month:

    850 texts
    30 MMS (since i've been able to send them ;) )
    300MB of data
    and a whole 10 mins of voice, i don't really like talking on the phone.

    I am almost constantly on Twitter and Facebook, but don't use maps too much FYI.

    Have you ever streamed last.fm via 3G for any length of time? I can burn through 1 - 1.5GB of data in a night working at a remote site. It might sound like a lot, but it is barely anything if you use the iPhone more like a netbook than a phone.

    How do you look up your numbers? Is everyone getting this info from their monthly bill?
