First thing set it to manual fetch. Push will use more data. Do you use wifi a lot? You can always track your data by dialing *data#. I use my phone on wifi a lot and have two emails pushing, browsing, facebook, and I'm only at 97MB. I have ten days to go to the end of my cycle. I do have the 2GB plan though. I haven't exceeded the 200 yet but I'm always super close.

My advice, drop the ****e data plan, you're bound to go over by 1MB and have to pay $10 more anyway, might as well just get the 2GB IMO, 200MB is a waste, if you're pushing email, or heavy email even on manual, you'll be crunching data! Good luck staying under that cap w/out paying 'cuz you go over....god bless ya, couldn't imagine having an iPhone and not using the 2-3gb i use a month

You could always start off with the 200 MB and keep a close eye on it through out the month. If you see yourself using more than you thought, all you have to do is call AT&T and up your plan. You can change you plan in the middle of a month. That way you avoid any overage charges.
Just a suggestion.
