    I have a feeling iCloud is eating up a lot of GB's on my Verizon data plan. What can I temporary disable on my iPad & Macbook Pro until I get home. I have Mifi and I updated the plan to 10 GB's for the month and I've already used 9 GB's within 21 days. I'm not watching any movies and limited ourselves on youtube. :confused:

    ICloud backup and photostream is wifi only.

    ICloud doesn't use appreciably more bandwidth unless you manually override.

    OP mentioned that he's using a Mifi. So the phone would think that its on Wifi, and enable these. You can disable the iCloud Backup under Settings>iCloud>Storage and Backup. One level up to disable photo stream. Do you use iTunes Match? That can add up too.

    No, I don't use iTunes Match. Do I disable iCloud on the iPad?
