    I'm just curious what some of you use for GB per month. Mainly referring to members that still have unlimited data. I normally was using between 6 to 11 with Iphone 4. The first month with the Iphone 6 it jumped up to 18 GB and now the second month jumped it up to 32 :eek:

    I think I might have to use wifi more, so verizon don't throttle my usage.

    What in the world? I don't think I could use up 32gb of data on my iPhone if I even tried.

    Back when I had unlimited, I never used more than 2GB. I'll use 2-4GB now, but I have to actively NOT use wifi in order for that to happen.

    35-60GB Verizon unlimited. Verizon doesn't throttle LTE.

    I have Sprint Unlimited and I use between 10-25GB per month.

    September I used 25GB, that's the most i've ever used.
    October I used 11GB, and this month so far I've used 10.9GB with 5 days left on my billing cycle.

    ~5gb... but AT&T throttles afterward and make it near unusable so it's hard to continue to use more...

    Verizon will not throttle you.
    They really want to but the FCC/FTC wont let them.
    But if you have wifi available use that since it will also use up less battery than pulling carrier data.
    I use wifi data when I'm around wifi and Im also on unlimited plan.

    Hold on.
    You're saying there's a way to reset the soft 5GB data cap on AT&T's network?
    There was a method before but hasnt worked for a long time on new devices and new ios versions.
    Is that what you're talking about or a different way?

    I used between 5 and 10GB on my iphone5,

    But I use between 15 and 20GB on my iPhone 6+.

    I surf a lot more on the 6 than I ever did on my 5.

    I average about 6GB / month. Now I have spotify and listen to it at work all day so I know I'll be using more per month. I still have my ATT UDP, although they're trying hard to push me to tiered.

    Usually I'm in the 3gb range. Last month I was up to 9 because I had to stream a couple games when I was out of town. Unfortunately, I'm not unlimited, but I do use a couple of vzw promotions that have me at 11gb a month which should be pretty much the same as unlimited to me.

    Jesus Christ. People using 50 gigs of data a month are why we no longer have unlimited plans.
