    I usually pull 3-6 gigs a month on the iPhone. Nothing beats the 6Gig plan. Most people don't need that much though.


    1) Slingbox (Tv streaming from home to iPhone over 3G)
    2) Streaming music
    3) Downloading videos / movies straight to the phone.
    4) Tethering (how could I forget that one)

    Those are the main reasons my data is so high. I love the ability to be at work and never miss a hockey game.

    2.5GB in about 2 years. I try to avoiding using data too much on 3G, because it eats through my battery at a ridiculous rate.

    Since July, I've used almost 6GB, so about 1.5 GB a month.

    About 0.5 GB or less is normal for monthly use. The first
    month is usually a lot higher for everyone.

    You deserve to be removed from the AT&T network for abuse. Clearly you are doing something you aren't supposed to.

    Maybe so, but if his usage is completely at his iPhone, then he is well within his rights according to AT&T terms.

    Are you kidding? I'd do 200GB a month if I had tethering on my phone. Yes I would get my every penny's worth.

    Right now I do about 2GB a month just on the phone. I use 3G only and never use WiFi; I'm paying $65 a month just for data; that's more than twice as much as almost everyone else. I'd get my money's worth and I applaud anyone else who does the same.

    If any SP can force fees like highway robbery, consumers have every right to use the service as needed.
