    Sorry title should read o2 users, on target to beat 200MB limit? bit of a problem not watching what my iphone keyboard is producing! :)

    I know limit is gone, but how many of you would have gone over the limit? After a week I have uploaded 8MB and downloaded 43, so looks like I would have just gone over. Mostly I have browsed at home over wifi since I don't get a strong or even reliable GPRS signal let alone edge. Maybe that's why o2 scrapped the limit because they knew it would be difficult to achieve?

    Wifi doesn't count towards the limit, so your total is likely to be much lower than that - check on the O2 site they probably have a page to tell you the real total.

    Wow... I average about 80mb a month and I thought I was a heavy user.

    I used to download more off the N95 to be honest (although that was because it didn't automatically switch to wifi like the iphone does and I couldn't be arsed switching it manually).

    How the heck do you download 50mb in 24 hours on a phone? What is there to download?

    I watched maybe 10 you tube videos so that will have been a chunk of it. Also it will have been seeding the email inbox for the first time, so that will have been chunky.

    Not a chance with me. When I'm out and about I've rarely seen that elusive EDGE symbol!

    Poor EDGE coverage is a great way for O2 to keep downloads limited.

    Indeed. The NW doesn't have great EDGE coverage. Yet?

    Sent 9.9mb and Recived 50.8mb in a week using GPRS.
    GPRS is actually alot faster than it was on my old phone, so it is surprisingly pleasant to use. Can't wait till EDGE is available in my area!
    I would have most likely gone over the limit, so I'm glad its been scrapped :p

    If there was free H.264 porn out there, O2's network would be brought to its knees.

    As far as I'm concerned there is more or less no limit.

    Not a chance of me going over the limit, 3mb received over edge in a week! I wish I could halve my data allowance and double the sms allowance.

    the only place i get edge is at home, where there's wifi. In town and in work theres no edge, which sucks. I often find edge is faster than my home network sometimes though, by the time the connection is shared with everyone in the house theres not a lot left for my poor iPhone.
