    It only has been a week since I got my iphone5 and I already used 649MB upload and 4.1GB download.

    I think this heavy LTE usage is due to iTune match streaming...

    Why don't you just look-up and see what has been using all the data? And then stop using that app over LTE!!

    And people was thinking of using LTE instead of wifi because it's faster?

    Just use wifi whenever possible especially at home and you won't be sorry later.

    You do not have to guess as you phone has the ability to tell you which program was using all the memory.

    How do you find out where the usage is?

    We're not talking memory here; it's about LTE data usage.

    Thanks Sprint, for having unlimited data! Glad I don't have to worry about my usage.

    3mbps on Sprint?
    Must be a mirracle, everyone else gets barelly 0.5mbps and that's if they're lucky.
    Mind as well go back to 2007 and use my original iphone on 2G:D

    I actually have no idea what speeds I get. As long as I can load the stuff I need to load, I've never experienced any real lags in the network. Not looking to download gigs of media on my phone.

    I actually like to load my data fast and not sit there and wait a minute for sites to load or an email to download etc...
    You should download a speedtest app to find out what you're actually getting. 3mbps on Sprints 3G is very rare but like you said since you dont know it was a very generous guess:)

    After 2 days I barely used 100MB on Sprint. I would've used more but it was impossible with the speeds I was getting.

    You can't. I think these people have mistaken flash storage for cell data transfer in iOS.

    Yeah, don't use the app with the fastest service you have!

    Goodness, didn't you know that you should only use the apps with little to no data on the LTE network?

    Duh!
