According to ATT, the unlimited data plan was to expensive for some people and very few would use that much data. Hence why they have the 2GB plan, but I feel they did that to make more money. Do you guys think 2GB will be enough space per month?
Can you please give feedback on your past data usage?

I stream a lot of music and e-mail a lot each day. I will download apps if they are under 10 MB on 3g. The most I have used in one month is around 800 mb.
I would say save the 5 bucks and downgrade your account.

They should have just left it as it is, or make it $30 for 5GB instead of 2GB. Everyone else is $30 for 5GB.
2GB is the most I do nowadays. I don't have time to watch live stream videos as many don't either. MMO and Farm games are my top usage.

What's MMO and Farm?
When I talked to a lady @ ATT in Business support, she streams music all day and in her car too and told me that she rarely gets to 2Gb.
I do have the 200Mb plan as I don't want to spend more $$ then I need to. I also have the unlimited TXT plan, which IMO is a farce. It should be included in the data plan, but I know its uses the voice communication path way and not the data. But I still feel my wallet is being r*ped.

When I asked the sales person when I ordered my IPhone what he would recommend. I told him that I listed to radio stations on my phone. He suggested to keep my unlimited data plan. The cost is not that much more than the next lowest data plan is.

I disagree. If you never reach any where near the 2 GB cap for the data plan with normal data usage, why would spend the extra 5 bucks? I have the last year of usage tracked and I haven't gone over 800 mb in a year. This leads me to believe that I never will go over 2 gb.
Its easy to find this information on your account.

MMO = Multiplayer Massive Online
Farm = Referred to farm games like Farmville from Facebook

500 - 600mb/month?
What do you do with your iPhone? The difference is so great... 200MB or 2 GB... Shouldn't be more like 500MB and 2GB?
To be honest, am I really making this a major concern? Since Unlimited is not an option for me (new to the iPhone world) I don't want to send and extra $5 ($60/year) if I don't have to. I'm already spending an additional $20 for unlimited txting.

Being a newbie with the iPhone. Can you leave Wi-Fi on all the time? Will it automatically switch when there is no Wi-Fi available? Also, how secure do you feel when you use other people's (not at home) Wi-Fi?

What are you doing to use more then 3.5GB/month? Must be a lot of emails and YouTube which you are flying around.
you tube has never been accessed on the phone, don;t waste data on something like that
Exchange email pushes for business w/ large attachments
Access to the corporate business site
Personal email pushes
Plus anytihng else I need to do to run my business when I am out of the office - and that is frequently. also that is only on the ATT line, I also carry smartphones from Sprint and Verizon depending on where in the country I am going to be at
