new data plan is bad

I only use my phone for the internet and I've gone over my 2 g limit twice this month. I've removed every streaming app. This will be the last ATT I'll go with.

I think you mean "browsing typical webpages".  What else would your data be used for, if not for "the internet".

 

But I agree, the current choices of data plans are not acceptable.  Just a way for AT&T to charge its customers more, for overages.

Stop streaming audio/video.  Turn off live wall papers.  Check settings for email to see how often it is checking.

 

I have never gone over 2GB of data, may highest usage was last month at 1.5GB but I am normally in the 600-900mb range.

 

It is entirely possible to manage your data usage, but it requires some common sense and knowledge of the device you are using and how you use it.
