    Screenshot from new iPhone 4 says it all. I wasn't trying to max out data just browsing full web pages rather than mobile versions. They look GREAT on this screen! I had an original iPhone so I was grandfathered in. :)

    I don't understand why I can't have an Unlimited Plan on my iPhone 4, when I had it on both my 3G and my pre-paid phone. :/

    The first thing I did was turn cellular data off.

    Aren't you grandfathered in because you had an unlimited plan on your 3G?

    Can you verify this on your AT&T account page?

    That's what I thought. Strange, eh?

    No data usage shows up on mywireless because of the recent data plan change on my account (original iPhone data to 3G unlimited data)

    It's a legit screenshot from my day old iPhone 4. Believe it or not! ;)

    Dude what the *****. Get on a computer or something. Use a real mans screen and quit clogging the network.

    That's pretty darn excessive. :D

    I tracked my cellular data usage last month. It was less than 100 MB in three weeks! Why did I keep my unlimited data plan? :confused:

    I dont think this is right. Mine says 5.5 gb. No way I used that much in the past couple hours. I bet when I synced it with Itunes, it gave my total usage from my other 3gs iPhone.

    Yes, if you restored from a backup of your 3GS it would keep the same usage stats. I set mine up as a new phone. The call time is just over one hour.

    ive used about 100 today. thats from excessive playing around. i have wifi at home obviously, but i like using 3g all the time for some reason. i just think its "cooler". a page loading 5 seconds later doesn't bother me a whole lot

    I guess I'm lucky to have fast wifi everywhere I go during a work day. My girlfriend made a FaceTime call to me last night when she was leaving the restaurant she works at. That was one of the coolest things I've ever done with a piece of electronic equipment.

    This phone kicks ass.

    You shouldn't be on your phone at work anyway, and especially not long enough to use 250 MB of data.

    I am up to 202MB and I got mine on wednesday... Glad I have unlimited too.

    I havent even gone crazy, just streaming pandora, and watching a world cup game. I predict some pretty hefty overage charge surprises coming up for some people
