I average 1GB/month.
Unless I'm working on a server and it requires a little more than a quick change; or I'm working on a website, my iPhone has replaced my desktop. Even then though I have FTP with online file modifications, and an SSH client here on my iPhone so I still do most of my minor server/script modifications from my iPhone.

I put such a high usage, because it seemed like people do almost everything with their iPhones. I am really surprised at how many people use wifi and not 3G.
Usually I use maybe 2-3GB. Last month it was nuts. I used 9+GB last month. Most of that was tethering.
I wasn't trying to abuse it, but I had no internet at the place I was staying and the 3G signal was perfect. So, every time I used my macbook pro, I hooked it up to my iPhone 3GS. It worked great.
I played a game of Madden 10 over Wifi with the PSP (not too much data use doing this).
Downloaded 1 episode of Lost via iTunes.
Podcaster was used in the background on the weekends.
Normal Email, web usage and Apps downloaded.
What killed me was when I watched a movie via Amazon, one via netflix and surfing on the web via my Macbook is a absolute hog.
I got my bill and I was charged no overage...... But, I won't be doing that anytime soon.

I'm new to iphone... just a week now with the unit and i try and use most of my data and downloading apps with my wifi to save upgrading to a bigger data plan. been with blackberry for past 6 years and lets say the device isn't setup to do the type of data usage the iphone can do! i will prob be around 300-400mb a month.
