How to conserve data on iPhone 4?
Hey I have the 200 MB plan on my iPhone and I want to go to the 2GB plan but I first want to know if I can conserve my data long enough to last me through the month, instead of jumping data plans.

Other then using WiFi whenever possible and shutting the Cell Data off at nights. Theres not much else that can be done other then restricting what you do with the internet.

Make sure you are not sending diagnostic data to Apple.  That has been discussed in almost every thread about the "phantom data usage" or "mysterious 2am usage".  It is an easy thing that can drop your data usage significantly.

It's in all the other threads, but since those seem to be hard to locate,  right click on your iPhone in iTunes and select "reset warnings".  After you do that, disconnect your phone, close iTunes, setart iTunes, reconnect your iPhone, and tell it you don't want to share the data with Apple when it asks you.

That only happens when you connect your device into iTunes or whenever?

* Settings - Mail - Push OFF - Fetch Manual - Advanced - Acct Fetch Manual
* Push Notifications - Turn push off on select apps or all apps
* WiFi when able
* Airplane Mode if you don't expect calls overnight or text messages

Some don't receive calls or texts and disabling the phone entirely prevents the 30 MB a night from happening.

There is also nothing wrong with jumping data plans. Should you go over your 200mb limit, you can switch to the 2gb plan and back date it to the beginning of the billing cycle and avoid any overage charge.
