    I find that hard to believe since most of the people that I see with iPhones are drunken college girls who use it for 1) texting and 2) auto-tuning themselves with that T-Pain app.

    It'd be less if my 3G service wasn't faster than my home internet...
    LOL... My internet at home is from AT&T and yeah I tether my iPhone to use it's 3G speed to download quicker.

    lol, ever since I started tethering, I'm way over that a month. In fact, i'm a lil over half way done dowloading a 7GB file that I started a few hours ago, and that's just today.

    People like you are the reason ATT is wanting to put a monthly cap on 3G data. Way to go.

    No wonder AT&T have problems with the amount of data some of you are using!

    If 3G is faster than your broadband then there is something wrong. I normally get 1.2 - 1.9 Mb over 3G/HSDPA but 50Mb over broadband on my laptop - no contest.

    HSDPA is not designed for vast amounts of data and while it is far better than GPRS, I pity those around you who will be suffering.

    Luckily we have data caps in the UK to stop abuse like this.

    Well in my defense, I'm not downloading anywhere near that much per month. It's just that I needed this file and I am away from home right now. I'm not seeding and downloading torrents or anything like that, but whenever I'm home from work, most of the time I'm tethered using IM and internet browsing.

    Not sure why you feel the need to defend yourself. ATT advertises thier plan as "unlimited". If its not, then they should very CLEARLY state that.

    nope. i reset statistics [very bottom button] every month

    ok...so heres another example. so let me think this out loud. [11,840,460kb divided by 1024kb= 11,562.949mb divided by 1024mb= 11.29194gb] that was also just another month.


    : 1GB=1024MB
    : 1MB=1024KB
