@Brickman.. how many emails can you possibly get?? Emails wouldn't even contribute to a large number like 2GB.. and web surfing doesn't do that.. it just doesn't O_O
I only end up using about 200mb a month unless I have to tether my computer like I did today when I installed windows 7 and my internet wasnt working.. XD
Also one time my bandwidth ran out on my home internet and I didnt wanna get any extra charges so I tethered to finish (1GB of) my download of 30 Rock season 3.. great show!! 6GB of data comes in handy sometimes.. oh thank thee lord of Rogers.. XD
Anyway I agree the tiers should be lower in the poll :/ And the caption "I hardly use it" does not adequately describe someone who uses less than 2GB of data.. 95% of people use 500mb or less. :P

I looked back at some old bills and I averaged only 285MB over the last 5 months. Probably would be higher if I did not use WiFi as much as I do at night, but I would NOT be near 2G/month.

I use about 350MB a month and the wife is pushing 400MB+. Mainly Youtube, streaming radio, some games, Maps, Where, Yelp, iDisk for MobileMe, App store, email (with picture attachments) and Safari.
I keep thinking I use a lot more, but I barely seem to be scratching the surface of 5GB.

Last month I used 1.3 gb ,i consider myself a heavy user, so I agree that just putting "under 2gb" in the poll is wrong cause you have different categories under 2gb..... My roomate averages 1.8g a month, he is in you tube all the time.
My wife uses about 60 mb

I just checked and I am averaging 2.5 Gb per month. And that is streaming audio (Simplify), Slingplayer (about an hour every weekday during lunch) (yes, I am using it over 3G. I am jailbroken, screw at&t. haha), and Orb for videos.
And with all that, only 2.5GB a month. But as I said I only watch videos or TV/Tivo about 1 hour (lunchtime) every weekday.
I stream music ALOT tho.

2GB is hardly using it? LOL ... It's my first month using the 3GS, and I tallied 1.5GB. That was mainly Pandora, MLB At Bat, streaming videos, and Facebook (which probably doesn't add much). Now that I picked up Pocket Tunes Radio (and configuring the URLs for the best streams) and streaming it all workhours long, I should hit 2GB well enough.

2.1GB last month 1.86 so far this month, and I still have a week left before my cycle renews. I dont know what you guys are talking about with resetting your counter on your phone. I use the AT&T App, which I wait until the next day after I pay my bill because not all of the usage is tallied.
