    Today my data started over so I reset the usage and after being at home all day connected to my wifi I checked the usage to find I have used 374mb sent and 336 received. I have the 32gb 4s. Is this right?

    I heard there was a bug that counted your WiFi usage as cellular usage, I could be wrong though. Look at your providers website they should give you a detailed history of your data usage.

    I may be wrong I thought I read it somewhere. It's not really a scam just the counter counts both while in reality you aren't using your cellular data

    Yeah but come on 700MB in a few seconds, no way in hell.

    I'm pretty sure its just a bug. I'm sure that is counting your WiFi as well. Thats really the one way.

    What does the data usage on your carrier's website say? That is what matters!
