    This is a pretty cool little tool.

    Data Calculator
    Looks like if you stream music for 2 hours per day you'll be getting close to your cap. 35 mins of streaming video per day = 2GB per this calculator.

    Nice post. I use my Iphone everyday all day and my average since the 3G is only 130 megs lol. My wife used more than me the last 3 months. She's up to 759 megs.

    i looked yesterday and i used 186 MB in the 1st 2 days of my billing cycle. i stream slacker and pandora, but i didnt on those 2 days....

    i personally was pissed when i heard this news. i agree that AT&T is just greedy and shafting the iphone users.

    Grandfathered in. Wonder what happens after the 4g upgrade though.
    I don't have a data plan. Not even txt. All though .20 a message gets old.

    Do all of my internet stuff on wifi. free voip, free txt. etc

    Why would you stream data? Radio ? Movies ? YouTube ? Video Chat? ok, only if shes topless

    I have all my music, videos, Pics, on my 16gs of storage. Which I change/update now and then. Would add more movies I guess if I had the 32gb. Why pay for data when you can get it for free most of the time? Already pay Comcast for internet, that's enough for me.

    Default I'm a Hog
    Since I'm grandfathered in, I will get the new phone on 7/15 when I'm able to upgrade. But I'm always over 1 GB, but much closer to 1.5. I should stop streaming MLB.com audio and video, Sirius is the only radio app I stream. But MLB over 3G is what's hogging it all now. Hardly ever use Sirius app on my phone.

    To be honest the only thing I'm worried about is video chat. We can already see that with just taking vids on the iPhone we get high into the mb's. If we are video chatting in HD, how is this going to play out? Being. In a long distance relationship I believe a concern is justified.

    So does this move let us get out of our 2 year contracts with AT&T?

    The new prices will actually save me $5/month as I don't ever go over 2GB. To people threatening to go to another provider... seeya, data hogs!

    I've really overdone it. LMAO. I think it's people like me that have messed it up for the rest of you.

    I've used 17.5 GB recently a month.

    AT&T says its 2gb per month plan will be more than enough for the vast majority of customers. According to the company, here's how much you could do with that capacity ............

    Send 104,847 text e-mails

    View 11,650 websites

    Send 5991 emails with photo attachments

    Downlaod 512 apps , games, or songs

    Listen to 70 hours of streaming music

    Watch 17 hours of standard quality YouTube videos.


    I think these would be individual things and not collectively.
    Hope this helps some people .

    Wow over 590MB and I'm only 11 days into my billing cycle, in May I was at 2.2GB, and April when I first got my iPad 1.4GB. (using MyWi with my ipad all day at work really eats that data up) Since Christmas I've been below 1GB. But over Christmas holidays at my parents house I discovered UWatch and used 5.9GB. I'm surprised they didn't send the usage police after me. Ha.

    My wife and I are 2 more users that are WAY UNDER 200MB per month. I expect there are many users like us who are also below 200mb... so for all of us the new policy is EXCELLENT!!! (i.e. it is NOT universally agreed that this new policy is Bait-n-switch)
