Data Usage
How much data are you using a month on your iPhone?  With 23 days left in my billing cycle I have used 1.45GB.

I've only used about 40meg this month and billing period ends on the 7th.

 

Just about everywhere I've been where I've used data this month has been at home on WiFi.  Oct and Nov will be different since I'll be traveling around.

I use around 300 MB/mo - I live in EDGE coverage, so I tend to use WiFi whenever I can.

Wow! 3 to 4 gigs is a lot. I can't imagine hitting 10 gigs. You must stay on your phone like 8 hours a day.

What is your usage? How do you creep up to the 3-4 gigs?

ESPN radio, downloading podcasts, iTunes U stuff. I send stuff using iDisk, Any Apps i find I use 3G most of the time. Lots of Youtube to keep my 3 year old busy when we go shopping. I drain my battery at least 2-3 times a day.(from 100 to shutoff). I am a hardcore user.

I'm not entirely sure what podcasts are. I guess I need some schooling on this one.. Youtube is awesome for kid stuff. Also, I like the free education apps for toddlers. Keeps my nieces and nephews busy when I see them.

Podcasts are sort of like radio programs in a file format.  You can listen to them just like songs.  I listen to the Wall Street Journal each morning on the way to work.  They can be video programs as well. Podcasts are as diverse as radio programs, some are musical, some are news, some are even comedy programs.  Most are free although some do require a subscription (like the Journal).

I've had my phone since last Wednesday (been using it since last Thursday) and I have sent 8.5 MB and received 127 MB. (I am a careful user, though, because my hubby tries to kill me when I use it too much around him. Smiley Happy )

With the iPhone, you've got unlimited, so he should be encouraging your habits. :-D Unless he's planning on switching you to a different phone that won't have an unlimited data plan on it! =-o

Hehe, key phrase: "when I use it too much *around him*." He gets jealous of the phone, in other words; wants my undivided attention, I guess. Smiley Wink

Try using DataMan to track your data usage. It records all your data activities in real time. You can use date search to find out how much you have used for some days. It's also has alerts to notify you when you exceed your self-define usage thresholds. DataMan is available in the AppStore.
