One week since launch, how much data have you sent & received?

    Some people believe, perhaps rightly, that mobile devices don't consume very much bandwidth and therefore AT&T can afford to give us "unlimited" data plans, but not free tethering. After 1 week of use, my new iPhone 3GS has already received 2.8GB and sent 298MB. At this run rate, a tethering limit of 5GB per month would be practically worthless.

    How much data have you consumed?

    #3 must use it as your sole internet source.

    I tethered on Sat. and Sunday and did a solid amount of surfing...the ATT website shows about 75mb.

    Not too bad.

    Or you should ground yourself and try to be a little more realistic. 5gb is plenty if you aren't an out of control 4 year old who wants everything.

    Have you had an iPhone before? If you haven't, this first few weeks, you'll be using it a lot more than you usually will. Realistically, you probably won't use it that much. I used a lot my first few weeks having an iPhone, but now almost a year later, I use it a lot every day but surely not enough to drain it after only half a day of pure internet usage.

    The usage statistics were transferred from your previous iphone when you restored from back up. As it says, the usage data has never been reset so that explains the 2.8gb.
