    Does iMessage use any substantial amount of data at all? I'm on a 2 GB plan.. I love the speed of it!

    It uses less than email.I love it too. And I'm also on a small monthly plan.

    It uses GBs of data...kidding.

    At some point, I figured it out how much data a typical 160 character iMessage is. Let's just say you can send/receive 10,000 iMessages using only 20MB of data (and that's being generous).

    If you just allotted 100MB of your data a month for iMessage, you could send/receive 50,000 iMessages. If you send/receive more than that, then I think you're insane.

    From what I've read? A few KB each.
