The iPhone is too much of a connected device to do without a substantial amount of bandwidth allowance IMO. (Browsing, social netowrking, downoading content, streaming music and videos, gaming..)
I'm with Phat on this one.
6 GB ftw
Yes if you're on wifi most of the time.
Possible, yes, practical, no.
Depends how heavily you use your device.
I could live with it, as I hardly ever use data on 3G.
I used 80 mb last month, my first month with the iPhone. I had it 2 weeks, so about 40 mb/week. I was terrified of only getting 2gb, but I found I'm on wifi all the time- at home, work, school, my parents' house, my grandparents' house, heck, even some of my friends' houses.
Yeah, it depends a lot. I'm on WiFI most of the time so I don't use that much 3G data.
A lot of the places I go have WiFi, so I survive on 200mb. Very easy to go over though.
i am not a heavy user and I use 400-700MB/month. i mostly do email, web browsing.
It is doable ... as people have said here ... WiFi should be your main source of Internet connection.
500 is almost the Industry min.

200 is what I use in a month to check mail.
That's what I was afraid of.
Guess I'll have to see about qualifying for some kinda edu discount on the 2gb plan.
I do just fine with 200MB a month. I'm mostly on wifi, so I usually don't even use 100MB in a month. I use my iPhone all day, too, so it isn't that I just don't use it much. If you're not on wifi then you will likely need 2GB.
When I didn't have WiFi, I used to go over all the time. Now that I'm usually on it, I save $15-$30 overage charges. I avg about 4 MB per day (120 MB per month) using the cellular network.
Check out the apps Data Usage and Data Man. The latter has a lite version which is free.
I don't know what you do with 1GB but I usually make 200MB a month on my iPhone, and I use it everytime i don't have WiFi
unless you watch 3 hours of youtube a day without WiFi, you don't really need so much data
200MB hardly do it on the iPad for mail and some casual/rare browsing, I would maybe tether my iPhone with MyWi to the iPad to get some extra MB's
I think its totally doable.
For me, I am around WiFi all day, whether it be in my dorm, or class, or in a study area, wifi is around so I just connect to that. I only use data when on the go and usually its simple things like checking a score or email.
If you're streaming video, 200mb won't work. Period. But if you're just checking email, posting to Facebook and browsing the web some, and also on wifi a lot of the time,200 is plenty. I only have 200, and haven't gone over yet. I am in an edge only area though, so that also makes a difference.
I've got a friend who's going to get a smartphone soon with just the 200 MB of data. She goes to a lot of places with wifi so it shouldn't be a problem. If you're on the go like some all the time you can't make it work.
I only used 180mb last month so yeah, sure it's possible. It really depends on your lifestyle and how much WiFi is around you. I work from home so 98% of the time, I'm home and connected to my WiFi.
I have 250MB and I haven't gone over it at all yet.
I don't stream video or audio....just surf, email, and apps and never go over 200 mb of 3g data.....I use wifi
I'd say it depends on your habits. Here at university, I use school wifi when I'm there, and my home wifi when I'm not. Only four or five times a week will I find myself needing the internet without a wifi network available. In the last three weeks I've only used 60MB of cellular data.
I used 7GB in September, so I couldn't survive on 200MB.
I guess you could call me a heavy user. I don't have WiFi at home or work though, and I watch a lot of Netflix
