Is new 2GB data cap enough for iphone 4?

First time i have owned a smartphone, wondering if the new 2GB data cap is enough for iphone 4. I imagine i will use it a lot, do have wifi at home though.

The data is unlimited. You can use as much as you're willing to pay for.

It's thinking this way that makes AT&T into monstor$.

 

Sure, paying for what you use generally makes sense; except when the industry's norm has shifted AWAY from the pay as you go model for the very simple reason that internet has become much cheaper than it used to be.

Yikes!!!! I just checked my data!

 

iphone 3gs

Feb - 1.7 GB

Mar - 2 GB

Apr - 2.2 GB

May - 1 GB

June - .8 GB

 

iphone 4

July - 2.4 GB

August - 3.1 GB

Man!!! Thats crazy! Thank you Jesus... I have unlimited Data, but seriously I don't use it that much!  >Smiley Surprised

 

If I only had 2 GB I would have to seriously reconsider... In July that would have been an extra 10, in August an extra $20, in September an extra $30!!!!


 

 

I think that includes the MMS data as well. Check the at&t app for you data usage.

You should read up on the Industry and what AT&T's competitors are doing before making that statement.

Verizon and Sprint both have stated that they plan to move to capped data services over the next couple of years.  AT&T simply is ahead of the curve on this.
