    3 Mbps for 30 days (constantly) is under 1TB, so I don't believe there's any way you could ever stream more than that.

    Am I reading this correctly? 1,300,000 MB's = 1,300 Gigs = 1.3 Terabytes of downloaded data? I kinda don't believe that.

    OP, sounds like your reading KB, not MB. If your usage really was a light as you describe, 1.3GB seems more likely.

    He probably doesn't even know what KB is so he just said something he's heard before. In any case, 1.3 GB is disgustingly low. That doesn't even reach AT&T's 2GB limit on their $25 plan.

    Well I cant pull up last months bill right now but here are my useages for this cycle which I'm only seven days into and I haven't really used it for 3 of those 7 days



    It say "7 of 28 days of cycle.....420.6 MB used of unlimited data"

    420.6 mb basically with me only using it 3.5-4 days

    Jobson, why don't you just delete your post again and move on! Sorry you don't think everyone is as smart as you think you are.

    I'm not thinking I used that much, more so wondering why it showed that much on my bill.


    ......

    it starts from bits:

    8 bits=1 byte

    1000 bytes=1 KB

    1000KB=1MB

    A MB(Megabyte) is a thousand KB(Kilobytes). So:

    1 MB=1000KB

    and 1000MB=1GB (GigaByte)

    You got that a little wrong there.

    8 bit=1 byte.
    1024 bytes = 1BK
    1024KB= 1MB
    1024MB=1 GB
    1024GB=1TB

    You need to add in those extra 24 in at each step because it quickly adds ups. Computers are base 2 and 1024 happens to be the closes power of 2 to 1000.

    Unless you're an HDD manufacturer ;)
    Besides this is an Apple Forum. SL calculates size according to "new math" 1000GB=1TB

    Clearly it says KB as the measurement of your data usage...

    I've never seen such a small amount of accomplishment go to someone's head.

    Yes, I took the pic out of my post, but it's still publicly available at your link location so I'd remove it from there if I were you.

    As to your question (edited but I'll answer it anway), 1.3G would be a lot of data to use on your phone alone (although plenty of activities will get you there). It is NOT a lot of data to use when tethering.

    Welcome to MacRumor. It looks like this was your first post, and it was an honest mistake. Try not to take the hazing to heart.

    Yes. When I used to use iPhone tethering as my primary Internet, I used upwards of 40.0GB a month at the minimum.
