    It's a lot easier than you might think. I stream video/music no less than 12 hours a day every day of the month!

    I live out in the country where there are no broadband providers, so my my phone is my hotspot for my whole house (1 desktop, 1 netbook, 1 BluRay player w/streaming, 1 xbox360, 1 DVR and 4 iPads). This cycle is the most I've ever used and it's because I was downloading some VERY large bit torrents. Typically over the last year I'm at 95 - 120 GB each month.

    I found this thread because I started wondering what the most was once I realized how high my own use was at already.

    Rest assured that your usage is about par for the course for those with unlimited data plans.

    Wow, that's low compared to what I got charged with this month. I went over my plans 300MB and I only use a couple of apps, Swift Key and Jewels Star game. I don't stream video or music either. I can't figure out how a basic email could be 13228 KB with no attachments or inline pictures or URL's. My average usage for the past 6 months is about 4 MB/mo and now all of the sudden it's over 300! AT&T was of no help at all!!!! Does anyone have any suggestions on what I can look into?

    1st things 1st.... A 13228 KB email is 12 Megabytes! That's not a basic email. If that was 1 email there was most definitely an attachment or 2. If that's what was used for the entire month, a few pictures emailed to you would do that easily. An average 8 megapixel pic shot with my Galaxy Note II is 2.7 MB. As for figuring out what's using your data, go to Settings > Data usage and then scroll down the list to see what's using it. If you haven't already done so, change the reporting period to whatever your billing cycle is so it'll be closer to what AT&T says for the same period. You can restrict data so that email, etc. only syncs when on wi-fi to keep the overage from happening again. Have you installed any new programs recently?

    I have a Thunderbolt (4G phone), and I spent 5 days in Florida earlier this month. I have all of my photos synchronizing to both Google+ (reduced quality) and Dropbox (full quality), and I took a lot of photos. No WiFi the entire trip, but pretty good 4G coverage (except it would drop from time to time).

    I left it uploading one night, not realizing that it was trying to upload a 5-minute 720p video I had taken, and failing for some reason - probably just too big. Woke up the next morning and my phone was hot to the touch, and had burned through 1+GB overnight trying to upload that damned video.

    Normally, I struggle to break 1GB of usage. Last month, I sailed past 4GB easily (I take a lot of pictures, what can I say, the camera on the Thunderbolt is awesome), and if I had been in Florida the whole month I'd have finally had a use for this unlimited plan.

    Back in September/October I wanted to see how much data I could use in one month. I ran across this thread today and figured I'd share mine. I hit 110GB in September and figured I needed to step my game up for October. This is all 100% data used by my phone itself, absolutely no tethering or hot spotting of any kind.

    Dude, you are my new data hero! I hit 400GB in January but that was a miracle.

    Holy cow, you guys put me to shame.

    I no longer have the unlimited plan, so I try to keep below the 1GB limit my wife and I have. Even when I had unlimited, though, I only ever got, at most, 750 MB.

    What app are you using for sharing internet? I use Pdanet, but it sometime stops transfer data when i'm streaming video, which makes me to reload the page.

    33 GB.

    I'm on my way to using more because I've used 2 GB already and my bulling cycle started yesterday. I have a lot of free time at work so I'm always using SiriusXM, Hulu Plus and Netflix. This won't last for much longer and I'll be back to my 5 GB or less per month. Until then, I'll be having fun.

    sure, like with netflix or whatever, which can use up to 2.3gb an hour of data for a single stream. Netflix does allow more than 1 concurrent stream. I have used around 700gb a month before, and no illegal activities like pirating or whatever.
