    I seem to be using a crazy amount of data.
    Just set it up at 4:00. And I haven't used it much since three hours of my tome since has been driving.

    So far ive used 105 mb of data. And I did a test and loaded a webpage to check usage. Seems to be about 2 mb per page load. Is something wrong here? Can I check usage someplace else?

    Thanks in advance.

    That's impossible... Unless you were downloading a podcast or something.

    Update

    Just to update...cslled Rogers and they have no ability to see my usage. The guy told me he was sorry and this was all new and he couldn't help me at all. So he told me to go to Apple...I'm in the store waiting as I type.

    He did tell me my usage was crazy and shouldn't be that high. Still, no help.
    :(

    that's odd - because i remember reading on the rogers' ipad data plan pamphlet that they would send you a message when your at 20, 10, and 0% of available data left.

    Very odd. But he said they have no access to the database and only had the ability to get me signed up.

    And I told him how unimpressed I was about the 20 dollar shared deal disappearing. He didn't care and told me Apple dictated everything to them.
    While I'm here, I'll be getting a Bell sim to give them a try next month...nothing is holding me to Rogers for my iPad..

    I am seeing ridiculous data numbers as well which is why I've held off using the 3G completely. When I got the 3G yesterday morning, I surfed 6-7 pages without video - and my data usage was up to 6.6 mb. :/

    I drove around for about 20 mins to see the google maps with gps, recv'd and sent an email. I used 6.8mb for that. Seems reasonable. ?
