2)Everytime i use a game o r use an app will it use up my data.

Re: help with data ):

some apps/games use data. You can tell which ones when you download it, it'll tell you which functions of the hones it can control, if internet is one of them, expect it to use data.

 

and if you have email set to load manually it won't use data because it's notchecking for email.

 

also disable weather, stocks, facebook, twitter and the such if you have them on the phone because it can use data in the background as well.

 

*DATA# to check your usage on the go, but AT&T does send out free s,s when you get close to your usage limits.

You can also use wifi for most of your data needs wherever it available. Data sent over wifi will not count towards the data plan allotment.
Probably from mobile, maybe. Smiley Happy

make sure you change the wifi policies otherwise it will revert to celluar data when the screen is off.

Re: help with data ):

You can be careful with all of the great suggestions mentioned above, but keep in mind that 200mb/month is still quite a bit of data for an average user. My wife has an iPhone 3GS and is on Facebook and twitter apps alot throughout the day and has not crossed the 200mb threshold (though I have her on the 2gb just in case.) She just tries to hop on WiFi hotspots when available to help. I would use it sparingly for a week or so, then check your data usage as stated above and see how it's adding up. Judge your usage over the first month's bill after that. Just be mindful what you're doing when you're not on WiFi and you should be fine.
