    Post How much data do you use?

    Ive been whizzing away on the internet not paying attention till today checking my data usage. So im curious to ask this question on how much data some of you guys use? I have reached to an all time high with my phone on data usage. 4541mb/4.4gb on 3g speeds & 2011kb on 4g. Im thinking i seriously need to cut back on the usage.

    What do you mean "hasn't come back to bite me"? Are you using PDAnet or something? Worried they may catch you?

    I use about 2.7gb/month on average, but I don't tether much (just when other options aren't available and it's really necessary).

    Yeah the tethering is the most common thing with people now a days. It eases things when you have no stable internet connection.

    That's around 2.5GB. They give you the usage in kb.

    That's around 2.5GB. They give you the usage in kb. I'm sure some math wizard (I'm just lazy) will chime in and say "NO, that's x.xxGB", but I don't care...You used a little bit of data. Ok, it's 2.6147GB...I just did the math.

    Use anywhere between 2 and 8gb. If I am traveling I use closer to 8, but if I'm home, I'm by wifi so I'm mostly on that. Stream a lot of video, don't tether beyond my tablet for Google Reader (which is the same usage as a phone).

    I use about 2GB a month, no tethering

    I was averaging between 1.8 and 2.3 gigs on my Optimus. I'm sure it'll increase a bit, and some will move to 4G usage, considering I just got my eVo today so I'll be playing with it quite a bit over the next couple weeks.

    I use hotspot, too, so just so long as I keep an eye on it after the beginning of October I'll be fine.

    I have my Evo, and an Optimus S both tethered, and used 37 gig and 32 gig each last month. They are essentially tethered 24/7.

    From what I hear sprint is going to start monitoring and possibly enforcing the 5gb soft cap on tethering starting in October. I know, I know, "scare tactics" and all that, but I'd hate to get hit with a huge bill. I don't tether much anyway, just to use my tablet when I want what is essentially a bigger screen for my phone.

    Our data will stay unlimited, tethering isn't technically supposed to be.

    Yeah true the tethering isnt supposed to but oh well... Sprint wont be able to keep up with the upkeep of people tethering without the plan.
