    Since I've gotten my iPhone 4:

    Sent: 332 MB
    Received: 2.3 GB

    Is this high? Or is everyone's about the same? I'm glad I stayed with unlimited. :D

    Surely some of that is WiFi, which doesn't count against your data usage.

    Check your AT&T account to see how much 3G data you're using.

    I'm sticking with unlimited when I set up my plan this week. In the beginning I won't use too much data, but once Hulu starts letting iPhones stream content, I am going to be using tons of bandwidth.

    In the iPhone usage menu, it only tracks cellular data.

    Yep my bad. Just make sure to reset that on the first day of your monthly bill cycle.

    Thats not too high OP, I too have 2.2 GB of received data, and got that high because of MMS and lots of YouTube videos, I am using less now since im adapting to Wi-Fi, it has drastically improven my battery life also.

    I'm not on an iPhone 4 bur I can already tell my data usage is going to be way higher on the 3GS than on my BB Bold. I hope my 1 gb data plan is sufficient (I don't tether).

    Those of you with over a gig of data usage, are you tethering or streaming a lot of music/video?

    One question, in the myWireless app it shows three Data items, mine are 54.14M, 3.8M and 2.07M, respectively. Any idea what they represent?

    So far:

    472.8 MB which is surprising to me because I connect to WiFi a LOT.

    According to AT&T, my total data usage is 139.61 MB's I'm pretty surprised. I've used a TON of IM'ing and watched quiet a few YouTube clips. And BeeJiveIM uses up data instead of texts, but if that's what they say.

    Uh oh. I have a 1 GB data plan. I wonder if I will need to up my plan. I don't stream music and very rarely use youtube (I see myself watching a youtube video maybe once or twice a month at most... probably will go months without using it), but I email and use the web a lot. I'm also using a few apps that obviously use data, but I'm not sure how much each time I access them.

    I just realized that I've never reset my data count on my phone so that might be some data from my 3GS because I restored from a backup. My AT&T account only says 811MB for this month.

    13 days into my billing cycle and I've used 77mb. I have WiFi at home and at work so I can't say I'm surprised. I kept my unlimited plan until I can see how iOS4 changes my usage with background audio and such.
