is the billing period on or after the date listed?

I got a text saying I had used 100% of my data for the billing cycle ending 5/20/2013. Does that mean 12:00 am ON the 20th or AFTER, as in I can use my phone again on the 21st? I'm very confused and I can't afford any overages, does anyone know the answer?

Data - what uses Data?

What actually uses data?    I have unlimited talk & text. Never use music, have extremely rarely used the internet search, and do check weather app & others sometimes.  Seems I quickly use 'data' but am not sure how in order to better control usage.
