    Alright, this thread was made for two reasons.

    1. To help potential buyers decide what plan to get.

    2. I'm just curious. xD

    Alright in case you didn't know, you can find your usage at
    General Settings>Usage

    Tell how much usage you are at, and what you do when using the data.

    I am currently on the Unlimited Plan

    75MB of uploading
    1.6GB of downloaded data

    I watch a lot of abc app, netflix, YouTube, forum browse, read the news, email a lot, and huge Twitter user. (lots more, but that's the main usage there)

    I've had my iPad for just over a week, and mostly use wifi. So if I was using strictly 3G, I'd be blown away by my numbers. xD

    If there is a thread like this already, please link me. 8)

    I just got my 5% remaining notice on my 250MB plan today. Though to be honest, I think most of that is from when the iPad falls back on 3G when the wifi cuts out while at home. My router is still set for the WEP encryption for everyone else and ipads prefer WPA. I'm thinking of getting a different router for me though so I can go WPA without disrupting everyone else.

    Activated the 2nd, only have streamed one Netflix - about 10-15 minutes worth that was 160mb.

    Sent: 35mb
    Revd: 406mb

    The rest of my usage outside of the Netflix thing i would consider normal to above normal, i think i might be able to get by with the 250 on a month with no weekend activities, but I have the kids talked into splitting the $30 with me so they can watch netflix!
