I just got LTE, and I've managed to rack up about 27gb as of today which is the last day of my billing period. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1384981430.658294.jpg

The dataman screenshot is the most accurate, as the sprint site seemed to stop keeping track at about 20gb. The 19gb shown in the settings screenshot is because of a restore when I got my iphone 5.

Probably not a lot, considering Sprint's network is absolute garbage throughout most of the country.

I wouldn't say that. Sure their 3G network is largely crap, but I still managed to use 23GB's since I updated to iOS 7. But I'm almost never on wifi.

I'm glad you qualified that, because the LTE in Phoenix certainly is NOT garbage. I'm averaging 10-15mbps down. Not fast, like the other carriers, sure, but way, way, way more than enough to stream internet radio.

So far about 9+ GB this month and I have about five more days in my billing cycle.

Note that my screenshot says 3G. I'm at work and in between a 3G and LTE tower. The 3G tower is closer to work so LTE comes and goes at my desk. LTE at home is strong however.

Feels good to have truly unlimited data and not have to worry about throttling or overcharges huh? ;)

I've had truly unlimited data since we switched to our Everything Data 1500 family plan (from an old Fair and Flexible 450 plan) on Christmas day, 2008. Never had to worry, and so, yeah, not having to worry now and being about 10x faster than on 3G is great!

Two months ago I was leaving sprint, now I get LTE at work where I use it most, and I'm happy enough for now to stay with sprint. Once the upgrade is complete in my area, I'm hoping the LTE spreads to my neighborhood and around town. If that happens and stays consistent like it has around where I work, I'll be an extremely happy camper. Hopefully this is signs of sprint improving for real.
