    Ok, I got my iPhone 4 a week or two and I was just wondering about the 2GB data Cap. Is this really enough? I don't use the iPhone fot internet tethering so I guess I don't use that much. All I use the internet in the phone is for emails, apps and browsing...

    Thanks and sorry if this is a dumb question..

    I know it's all I'm going to get but I was wondering if 2GB a month is enough...

    Well, it depends on what youre doing. If youre not streaming anything...then yeah it should be enough. For example, if you are not listening to Pandora or watching Netflix constantly, your data should be fine. For doing data-intensive stuff like that, I recommend connecting to a WIFI network.

    Wifi usage does not count against your data plan.

    My phone is new... I got it about 1 week and a half ago. I'm looking at the usage section and it says...

    Cellular Network Data
    Sent - 27.7MB
    Received - 340MB

    Do I have to add both readings to get the correct data usage?

    Yes, add both sent and received. By the looks of it should be enough for you.
    After a few months you will see your average use.
