    How much data do you use on Iphone per month?

    I'm shocked over how many are over 20GB.

    I hardly ever go over 3GB

    I use about 3GB/mo, last two months I did 3.8GB on my unlimited plan, but that is b/c I was using YouTube HD streaming with a JB program called 3G unrestrictor and it allows the iPhone to think is on Wi-Fi letting you watch you tube videos in Hi Def.

    Overall I've noticed my average is like 3GB per month, but I have unlimited data so I don't get charged an additional $10 for that extra Gig.

    The people who are getting in excess of 20GB/mo are people who are definitely tethering their iPhones using either myWi or other JB tethering programs out there. I also have a myWi license, but would only use it in case of an extreme exigencies, like my home DSL going down which it did two nights ago as my motorola DSL modem gave up, burned up in smokes and had to wait two days to go to AT&T store to get another DSL modem/router from 2wire. But again if these people who are getting in excess of 20GB/mo are probably either using their iPhone's data as their home Internet or are just too negligent.

    Thats like 300mb an hour for a month solid. Are you torrenting or something? Nothing legal comes from 183gb in a month.

    I'm just over 700mb for the month right now. I only broke past 2GB once and that was last month playing a lot of Pandora radio.

    I'm usually between 1-2GB/month. Once I went over 2, but it was very much less than 3GB. My billing cycle ends in 5 days and I'm at 1.4GB for the month. Not too bad.

    I have 1GB with Virgin Mobile in Canada and try to stay under it.

    We have free wifi in Montreal with Ile-sans-fil which comes in pretty handy otherwise I would probably blow through that gig in half a month... :p

    SO far most are 5gb and less pretty much what At&t says, 98% do not abuse the data plans.

    Range from over 200MB but under 1 GB.

    I very rarely go over a gig. I don't know how people do that consistently.

    I had the unlimited plan but never passed more than 500MB per month. All those who use over 3 GB without tethering are insane! Either that- or they never use wifi- I always seem to be around wifi tho.

    After seeing that I never used my unlimited very much, I cancelled my clearwire subscription (clearwire is the WORST company I've ever dealt with) and set up the tethering plan. I'll see how much usage I consume now...

    Ditto. I am on wifi a lot though. I use wifi at home, at work, and any place that has it.
