I wasn't using quite as much but lately on the go so much, I find myself grabbing my iPhone more to surf the net so my usage has gone up.
I'd considered actually lowering my bill and going to one of the smaller plans but I know the minute I do, I'll be sorry so I've kept it.

I was told by the AT&T drones at the corporate store and at the apple store where I got my IP4 that I would be grandfathered in with my unlimmited data plan being an existing customer. I usually have always used 1.5g-2.5g and have hit over 2g with my new IP4, and no extra charges, so things being ok, I'll keep it up on the data waves.

I average about 6GB of data (down) per month. Like an earlier user said, I would be seriously screwed if I were on a limited plan.

1) AT&T would charge $10 per each additional GB increment.
2) You ask AT&T for another $25 (or $15) plan that starts over at the time of the request.
In either case, my ~6.3GB would cost me at least $65 - 80 using the best, currently-available plan.
YOU would have access to a meter, though, which would tell you how much data you'd consumed. So you needn't be taken completely off-guard.

My data usage is over 2gb every month. I stream Tunein Radio during the week, and I also stream podcasts. It surprises me to hear people say that they are almost always in a free wifi hotspot. Unless I'm at home, I'm rarely in a wifi area that's not password locked (and I don't have the password). I'm glad that I have a grandfathered unlimited plan.

I have no complaints on that score. Its battery lasts longer than any laptop I have ever had.
Jailbreak it and use stuff like Backgrounder and your battery life will take a hit, but remain exceptional.

i went into upgrade my phone to the iphone 4 and they tried to push the $25 plan down my throat i told them to look up my last month's usage and they did... it was 11256mb i politely told them that ill beholding on to my unlimited plan for a little bit longer then pay the $95 that using 11+ gigs would cost
